"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."

"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?"

"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."
