Retired New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung gave a Twitter shoutout to former teammate Kyle Dugger.

Dugger is taking Chung’s former jersey number, 23, in 2021. New England announced number changes for their veterans in a tweet on Monday. Dugger was among them, going from 35 to 23. Clearly, Chung saw the change, and was excited to see Dugger continue the legacy of the number.

“Wear it well young savage @kingdugg_3,” Chung wrote Tuesday.

Chung, a second-round pick out of Oregon, had a 12-year career, with 11 years in New England, where he won three Super Bowls. He was listed on the Patriots’ all-decade team for the 2010s.
