Date:

Patriots SS Patrick Chung exited Super Bowl 52 with a concussion and will not return.

Chung is the Patriots' tight end coverage specialist, and after his exit Zach Ertz promptly scored an 11-yard touchdown.

The Patriots have given SS Pat Chung an additional $800,000 in incentives this season.

Chung already had $900,000 in incentives after signing a one-year, $5.7 million extension through 2018 in April, so the Patriots are simply rewarding and motivating Chung to keep up his good work. A 14-game starter last year, Chung is a major piece in coach Bill Belichick's gameplan against tight ends.

Patriots signed SS Pat Chung to a one-year, $5.7 million extension through 2018.

Chung had two years left on his current deal that he signed last January and is coming off yet another strong season. He started 14-of-15 games, recording 85 tackles, nine pass breakups, and a forced fumble. Chung has completely turned his career around and is a key to the Patriots' defense against tight ends.

Patriots signed SS Pat Chung to a three-year, $8.2 million contract extension through 2017.

Chung, the 34th overall pick in the 2009 draft, was mediocre at best during his first five seasons in the league. He was drafted by New England and spent his first four years with the team before going to Philadelphia in 2013 and coming back to the Patriots this season. Chung started 15-of-16 games, recording 85 tackles, seven pass breakups, and one interception. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 12 overall safety, finishing third against the run.

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.

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 FS Pat Chung (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Week 7.

Chung can be written off as an IDP option. Dealing with a nerve issue in his shoulder, Chung lasted only 12 snaps in Week 6 and is now "week to week."

Eagles FS Pat Chung is dealing with a nerve issue in his shoulder.

He's listed as day to day and will undergo more tests Tuesday. It's becoming clear that Chung's injury is more serious than initially thought. He returned in Week 6 after missing the last two games, but was limited to just 12 snaps.

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

It's Chung's second straight game sidelined, giving rookie liability Earl Wolff another start at free safety. We can't think of a better matchup for Eli Manning to get going in. There are no surprises in the rest of the Eagles inactives: QB Matt Barkley, CB Shaun Prater, T Matt Tobin, T Dennis Kelly, DE Damion Square and TE Emil Igwenagu.

Eagles FS Pat Chung (shoulder) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Giants.

Eagles declared S Pat Chung (shoulder) inactive for Sunday's Week 4 game against the Broncos.

Chung has been among the worst safeties in the league all season, so it's scary that the Eagles consider rookie replacement Earl Wolff a downgrade. Peyton Manning is licking his chops. The rest of the Eagles inactives: QB Matt Barkley, CB Shaun Prater, T Matt Tobin, T Dennis Kelly, DE Damion Square and TE Emil Igwenagu.

Eagles FS Pat Chung (doubtful, shoulder) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 4 against the Broncos.

Chung hasn't practiced all week due to a shoulder injury. He traveled with the team to Denver and still has a chance to play despite being listed as doubtful. If Chung can't go, rookie Earl Wolff will make his first career start.
