Patriots signed S Patrick Chung, formerly of the Eagles.
Chung is returning to the team that made him a second-round pick in 2009. The Patriots have a hole opposite Devin McCourty after releasing Steve Gregory, but Chung was one of the worst safeties in the league last season. That, coupled with his long and winding injury history means he's almost certainly just a depth signing. Chung won't be guaranteed to crack the 53-man roster. Duron Harmon is the early favorite to start opposite McCourty. Apr 3 - 1:26 PM

Eagles released FS Patrick Chung.

The move saves the Eagles $3.25 million against the 2014 salary cap. Chung was a disaster in every facet of the game in 2013 and failed to force a single turnover despite playing 815 snaps. He will likely have to wait until the third wave of free agency before he finds a new home.

The Eagles are expected to release FS Pat Chung this offseason.

Chung is owed $3.25 million and was dreadful throughout 2013, getting burned in coverage relentlessly and consistently taking bad angles in the run game. He didn't force a single turnover. A 2009 second-round pick of the Patriots, Chung has been exposed as a poor safety since a faux-breakout 2010 season.

Eagles declared FS Pat Chung (shoulder) inactive for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Giants.
