Former Oregon Safety Patrick Chung Re-signs With New England Patriots

Less than a week after being released from the Philadelphia Eagles former Oregon Safety Patrick Chung has resigned with a former team in the New England Patriots. He is the latest addition to a rebuilt secondary for the 2014 season. Chung was originally drafted by the team in 2009. He was the 34th pick in the draft that year. The former duck may have something to prove.

In Philadelphia he was released when the team signed is replacement in Malcolm Jenkins, who left the New Orleans Saints. Jenkins was also drafted in the 2009 NFL Draft, as the 14th pick overall. Chung, with the Eagles started 10 of 12 games and picked up plenty of game experience making fifty six tackles and a fumble recovery for the 2013 season. He has not been very sturdy in his NFL career battling various injuries. He missed seven of the last eight regular season games in 2010 from a foot injury and the first four in 2011.

Chung returns to the team where he had the most success. In four seasons with New England he had seven interceptions. In 64 regular season games he played in 50 and had 20 starts.
