A member of the New England Patriots’ 2017 undrafted class is returning.
The Patriots have agreed to terms with linebacker Harvey Langi, agent Kenny Zuckerman of Priority Sports shared Monday. According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, it is a one-year deal for Langi, who spent the past three seasons with the New York Jets.
Langi, 28, first arrived in New England on a pact that featured $115,000 in guarantees. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound Brigham Young product made the 53-man roster following his rookie preseason and appeared in one game before injuries sustained in a car accident sent him to the non-football injury list.
Over the campaigns since then, Langi has totaled 76 tackles, two passes defensed and one fumble recovery. He checked into 30 games and started nine as a Jet after being waived by the Patriots on Labor Day weekend in 2018.
Langi played 45 percent of the snaps on defense to go with 55 percent of the snaps on special teams last season. A career-high 60 tackles were recorded — including 10 against New England at MetLife Stadium in November — before a neck injury saw him placed on injured reserve in December.
The Jets declined to tender Langi as a restricted free agent leading up to the new league year.
