Chung signed a three-year extension worth $5.7 million with the Patriots on Friday, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chung will be locked up through the 2018 season as he has emerged as the Patriots starting strong safety over the past two years. He finished the 2015 campaign with 85 tackles and a forced fumble in 15 games.

During the 2015 regular season, Chung was on the field for 81 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Devin McCourty and Chung -- who are both under contract for 2016 -- served as the team's starters at the safety position, with McCourty working "in the center field-type role" and Chung "often playing in the box and offering quality run support," per Reiss. In the process, Chung carved out a degree of IDP relevance, recording 85 tackles and a forced fumble over 15 games for the team.

Chung signed a three-year extension with the Patriots on Friday worth up to $8.2 million, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

After being cut by the Eagles last March, Chung quickly reunited with the Patriots, where he's served as the team's starting safety all season. Though his previous tenure with New England was marred by inconsistent play, he's come through with an effective 2014 season, defensing seven passes while racking up 85 tackles. The improved play was enough for the Patriots to justify locking Chung up through the end of the 2017 campaign.

Patriots signed FS 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 very-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 release 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."
