In addition to signing former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams, the New England Patriots released wide receiver Austin Collie. 

The Patriots signed rookie running back Cierre Wood to the practice squad.

Williams, 25, has four career receptions for 46 yards and nine special teams tackles.

Collie, 27, was signed by the Patriots on Oct. 3. He played in four games with one start for the Patriots and registered three receptions for 34 yards before hurting his knee.

Wood, 22, was originally signed by the Houston Texans as a rookie free agent out of Notre Dame on May 10, 2013. He made the 53-man roster out of training camp and played in three games before being released on Oct. 21 for violating team rules. Wood had three rushing attempts for nine yards in his three NFL games. He led Notre Dame in rushing in two of his three college seasons.
