Patrick Chung the 'Bionic Man' in 2010? Better. Stronger. Faster..

Robert Lee notes Pat Chung is not working on one specific aspect of his game to improve, he's working on everything.

"I want to get faster, stronger, more explosive, smarter. You have to be a coach of the game now, not just a student," Chung said.

"I’m never settling," Chung said. "I’m always [trying to improve]. I’ve come a long way with the veterans helping me and I’m always on a mission."

"From your rookie year to your second year is the most important, so I’ll save [off-season travel and] all of that stuff for later," Chung said.

Ian Rapoport notes Australian punter David King spoke to the media for the first time.

"It’s just a dream," King said today, while meeting with reporters. "I wanted to do something different than people do back home. You throw yourself out in the deep end, and it’s a long process. But you want to do something that’ll make people back home proud of you."

"I don’t have a great deal of knowledge," he said. "I do like the game, I’ll tell you that much. We don’t get a lot of it back home. But over the last few years, we’ve been getting more reception because of the Aussies playing in the league now. I’m just here to show the guys I can really kick a football, and hopefully I’ll learn the rest."

King has met with special teams coach Scott O’Brien, as well as with coach Bill Belichick. King specifically seemed to think the meeting with Belichick was pretty cool. "I had a good meeting with him, a little bit of a chat," King said. "He’s a great guy. I was surprised how easy he was to talk to. Coming from back home, this sport is huge. So you don’t get the opportunity to meet people of such stature." He just hopes he can land here.

"New England seems like a nice place to be."
