The McCourty brothers were part of the same secondary when they were in college at Rutgers and Titans cornerback Jason McCourty would love to play with his brother Devin again in the NFL.
With Devin able to become a free agent next month, there’s a possibility that could happen in Tennessee and the Patriots safety said that his brother will be “definitely trying” to convince him to come to Nashville if he hits the open market. Devin offered no hints about how appealing that sales pitch might be, but Jason sounds unconvinced that family ties will wind up carrying the day.
“I’ll see what I can do. It’s going to be hard to get him out of New England,” Jason said, via NJ.com. “You know how the business side of it goes. We’ll see. If he becomes a free agent, I’ll be doing everything in my power to try to get him to Tennessee.”
There’s been talk about the Patriots using the franchise tag to ensure that Devin McCourty remains on the team if they can’t agree on a long-term deal, which is one of the developments he says he’s waiting on before seriously considering his options.
