In an appearance on “CBS This Morning” this week, Chung said there were a number of personal factors that led to him opting out. Among them are that he has a son with asthma and another child on the way.

Chung’s reasons are similar to those a lot of his peers have given. His teammate, Patriots starting linebacker Dont’a Hightower, just had a baby in July.

The Patriots have had multiple starters opt out due to the coronavirus, and they are obviously beginning a new era without Tom Brady. They’re going to face more challenges than most teams this season, though Cam Newton seems to be ready to tackle them.

Chung was drafted by the Patriots with the 34th overall pick in 2009. He spent the first four years of his career in New England before playing for the Philadelphia Eagles for one season in 2013, and he has been back with the Patriots since. The safety has been a Bill Belichick favorite despite having some off-field issues.

In this case, Rosenthal says, contract tracing efforts had already identified the particular player as likely to have been exposed. That doesn’t change the gravity of the situation.
