Colbert signed with the Patriots in mid-May. The 27-year-old was drafted from Miami in the seventh round of the 2017 draft by the 49ers. He spent two years in San Francisco, playing in 21 games (with 12 starts) and recording 58 total tackles with six passes, defenses, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
He spent time with Seattle, but did not play in 2019 before joining the Dolphins later in the year. Last season, he played in six games for the Giants, recording 13 total tackles and one tackle for a loss.
He registered five total tackles — two solo, three assists — and one interception this preseason. His pick came against Nick Mullens of the Eagles, which helped maintain a defeat for the Patriots in Philadelphia.
The Patriots — and every other NFL team — must narrow their roster to 53 players by 4 p.m. Tuesday.
