Former Super Bowl champion Corey Dillon is experiencing a case of divorce deja vu ... 'cause his longtime wife is calling off their marriage ... for the second time.

The former New England Patriots running back has been hit with divorce papers from his wife of 12 years, Desiree Antoine-Dillon.

According to the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, Desiree is blaming the split on irreconcilable differences.

Desiree is asking for full legal and physical custody of their 3 minor children ... with Corey getting visitation rights.  She's also asking for spousal support.

Desiree had filed for divorce from Corey back in 2010 ... but the split was called off a month later.

Fun fact -- Dillion once held the record for racking up the most rushing yards in an NFL game (278) ... but it was later broken by Jamal Lewis (295) ... and then Adrian Peterson (296).
