Safety Patrick Chung has returned to the New England Patriots after one year with the Eagles. Chung signed Thursday with the team that drafted him in the second round in 2009.

  The Eagles released Chung, 26, on March 11, the day they agreed with former New Orleans safety Malcolm Jenkins on a three-year contract. Both were drafted in 2009 - Jenkins with the 14th pick and Chung with the 34th.

Colt McCoy signed a one-year deal with Washington after appearing in four games last season with San Francisco. He is the third Redskins quarterback behind Kirk Cousins and starter Robert Griffin III. McCoy could rise to No. 2 if Cousins is traded during next month's draft. Free agent Rex Grossman had been No. 3.

Griffin said he will not give up his No. 10 to accommodate new teammate DeSean Jackson, who wore that number with the Eagles.

    COLLEGE FOOTBALL The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights is investigating how Florida State handled sexual-assault allegations against quarterback Jameis Winston, USA Today reported.

    A Florida State student said Winston raped her in December 2012. According to Deadspin.com, FSU officials met with Winston in January 2013, but the university might have violated federal law by delaying its investigation and meeting with him alone. Florida authorities said in December that Winston would not face criminal charges.
