A snapshot look at the contract signed by receiver Austin Collie with the Patriots:

Term: 1 year (through 2013)
Signing bonus/incentives: None
Base salary: $715,000

The deal includes a split, so if Collie lands on a reserve list his base salary would be reduced. There is also an injury waiver as part of the deal, which is likely tied to Collie's past with concussions.

As one would expect given Collie's injury history, and the time of year on the NFL calendar, he isn't in a position with great leverage. From a team perspective, this is a deal that has as limited of a financial risk as possible for a player with Collie's experience.
