And on Byrd: "Byrd played different positions. He showed a lot of position versatility in college and he definitely was a playmaker in college as well. I think the issue with Byrd coming out was he was more of a corner in college.

"It was, I would say, a little bit of a projection to safety, which he’s obviously done very well there, even though he’s not a regular player for them. His playing time really comes on their sub-defenses. I think he’s a guy that is obviously a valuable player to have, a valuable player for the defense."

One thing's for sure -- The guy has a fan here in New England.

"Always," Chung said. "I see the stuff about him. If I see highlights of him, I’ll watch, and if he sees highlights of me, he’ll watch. I’m gonna support him regardless – He’s pretty good though, huh?"

And is that a surprise to Chung? Guess.

"Not surprised at all," he said. "I know he has very good hands and very good instincts, some of the best I’ve seen. I mean, that’s from me, and I’ve practiced with him."
