Chung comes back to Patriots

The New England Patriots signed safety Patrick Chung, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles last month, the team announced Thursday.

Chung lasted just one year into a three-year, $10 million contract signed with the Eagles in 2013.

Chung, 26, spent four seasons with New England (2009-12) after joining the team as a second-round draft pick (34th overall) out of Oregon in 2009.

The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder signed with the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent on March 12, 2013. He was released by Philadelphia on March 11.

Chung has played in 62 NFL games with 40 starts and has registered 291 total tackles, seven interceptions, 22 passes defensed and one fumble recovery. He has played in eight postseason games with five starts and has added 23 total tackles.

Chung played in 50 games with 30 starts during his first four seasons with New England and accumulated 235 total tackles, seven interceptions and 19 passes defensed. He blocked a punt and a field goal in the same game at Miami on Oct. 4, 2010, and finished that season with a career-best 89 total tackles.

Last season in Philadelphia, Chung played in 12 games with 10 starts and finished with 56 total tackles, three passes defensed and one fumble recovery. He started in the Eagles’ postseason game against the New Orleans Saints on Jan. 4 and finished with four total tackles.
