FOXBORO (CBS) — The Patriots re-signed special teamer/linebacker Harvey Langi on Friday. Langi’s agent, Kenny Zuckerman, announced the extension on Twitter.

Langi was set to become a free agent in March, but is reportedly getting a one-year extension from New England, according to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss. Langi appeared in seven games for the Patriots last season, playing 98 snaps on special teams, but landed on IR after suffering a knee injury in Week 7.

The Patriots originally signed Langi as an undrafted free agent out of BYU in 2017. He made the team out of camp but appeared in only one game before landing on the reserve/non-football injury list after he and his wife were injured in a car accident.
