Patrick Chung: 'Thank you, Malcolm!'

New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung was a guest on NFL Network’s “NFL-AM” program on Friday morning, and if there was any question as to whether the excitement of the Super Bowl has worn off, Chung erased them by jumping out of his seat when highlights of Malcolm Butler’s interception was played.

“It feels good. Seeing it sometimes, I’m like ‘Damn, he caught that. Thank you Malcolm!’” Chung said to host Rhett Lewis.

Chung said he’s been enjoyed celebrating the victory in recent weeks, although things have calmed down a bit.

Here were a few other sound bites from his interview:

On Butler’s interception. “I’m on the sideline and we’re in goal-line, three-corner. It actually happened fast. It was like ‘Boom!’ and I was like, ‘Did he catch that?’ He took off sprinting, had tears in his eyes, and then I was like, ‘Oh my God, you’re a hero, bro.’”

Devin McCourty and Darrelle Revis as free agents. “They are two great players. Whatever happens, happens. I would love to have them both. … To have players out there like [Revis] who can pretty much take away receivers, then you have Dev that is taking away deep middle; we have a complementary team and it would be good to have those guys back.”

More on McCourty and the defensive backfield. “The more you can do, the better. We have a good group of DBs, not just the guys you’ve mentioned. It’s a group of DBs that can do a lot of things -- cover, tackle, play special teams.”
