Chung, 28, is coming off a nice 2015 season where he combined for 85 total tackles in 14 starts. Chung brings leadership to a Patriots secondary that had major question marks going into the 2015 season after losing Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner.
Chung will make a $2.4 million signing bonus included in the agreement and $5.7 million in new money.
