The New England Patriots have signed linebacker Harvey Langi to a one-year contract extension, his agent Kenny Zuckerman announced, making their first move of the offseason.
Langi began his NFL career with New England after making the 53-man roster in 2017 despite being undrafted out of BYU.
However, just a week into the season he and his wife, Cassidy, were involved in a season-ending car crash. The Patriots would cut him before the following season, and he would spend the next three seasons with the Jets.

Langi then returned to the Patriots ahead of the 2021 season following New York’s decision to not tender the linebacker. The year was rather unsuccessful for Langi though, as after seven games of appearing as a special teamer and emergency linebacker, an MCL sprain put him on injured reserve.
It seemed like New England didn’t have much interest in the 29-year-old, as he returned to practice with the Patriots but they never activated him during the 21-day activation window. However, it looks like Langi is going to give it another go with the Patriots.
Free agency for the NFL begins on March 16th at 4 p.m EST. See the Patriots’ free agency tracker right here.
