But, Lavonte David, he has a chance. He’s that younger version coming up. I hear he’s a great guy."

A first-team All-Pro, David became the seventh player in NFL history to record at least five sacks and at least five interceptions in a season, the report said. David has 283 tackles in his two-year career.
