The Patriots signed safety Patrick Chung yesterday, in a move that surprised just about every Patriots fan alive. Chung played with New England for four seasons, before joining with the Eagles last year.
Chung spoke with the media yesterday via conference call. Here are a few quotes: (via Doug Kyed of NESN)
“I got the call and I was excited. I was happy, I was relieved. It was a very, very, very easy decision. It didn’t really take much.”
“I’m glad to be back, man. It’s like family here. It feels like home. I love the fans, I love the coaches, love the environment, love the city.”
On what he may have to do with New England:
“If it’s special teams, if it’s defense — whatever my role is here, I’m OK with it. I’m in the place I want to be. That’s good for me. I’m not worried about all the distractions, ‘Am I going to be playing? Am I going to be doing this?’ Whatever I can do to help the team win, I’m good.”
I personally think that Chung may not even be on the Pats roster come opening day. He will be competing with Adrian Wilson, and Tavon Wilson for the third and fourth safety spots, and I like both of them over Chung.
