Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins is earning the veteran’s minimum on his one-year Patriots deal, according to Mark Daniels of The Providence Journal. It’s a one-year, $1.075MM pact, though the Pats are only paying him the prorated portion of $836K. 

The Lions cut Collins in late September when they couldn’t find a suitable trade for him. That also left them on the hook for much of his three-year, $30MM deal.
