The New England Patriots bolstered their defense on Monday, bringing back linebacker Harvey Langi on a one-year free agent contract.
Langi’s deal will mark his second stint with the Patriots after spending the last three seasons with the New York Jets.
In 2017, the Patriots signed Langi as an undrafted free agent out of BYU but he only saw action in one game that season after sustaining injuries in a car accident in October. After making a full recovery, Langi was released by the Patriots before the 2018 season opener during roster cuts.
Langi spent the next three seasons with the Jets, working his way up from the practice squad in 2018 to the 53-man roster in 2019.
Over the past two seasons, Langi appeared in 16 games in 2019 and 14 in 2020 respectively.
Langi re-joins the Patriots coming off his most productive season in the NFL where he had 34 tackles, a pass breakup and one fumble recovery and six starts in 14 games played.
On Tuesday, Harvey shared some photos of his family celebrating his return to Foxborough over Instagram.
“Two babies later…Foxboro, run it back! Back to where it all started. GRATEFUL, BLESSED & EXCITED! LFG”, Langi wrote.
