Jamie Collins was a versatile, productive Pro Bowl linebacker in three-plus seasons in New England before a deadline-day trade on Halloween shipped him to Cleveland in 2016.

The former second-round pick made big money in two-plus years with the Browns, but was released by the team on Wednesday.

Heading toward next week’s opening of free agency, WEEI.com ranks the Patriots own free agents in terms of their importance for 2019. Speaking of key free agents, WEEI.com thinks Trey Flowers hinted at a return to New England during an appearance at a minor league hockey game. As we get closer to the April draft, WEEI.com writes that Alabama tight end Irv Smith Jr. is a name Patriots fans should get to know.

The Providence Journal continues to look at the Patriots roster by position, moving on to Devin McCourty and the rest of the safety spot.

NESN.com has a second version of a Patriots mock draft which sends Notre Dame DL Jerry Tillery to the team at No. 32, with New England landing a quarterback in the third round. NESN.com also wonders if Jason McCourty will be one season and done in New England.

MassLive.com also as a seven-round Patriots mock draft, landing New England Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons in New England at No. 32.
