Devin McCourty hopes Patriots are interested in his brother

Devin McCourty plays for the Patriots. Until very recently, his identical twin brother Jason played for the Titans. Jason is now available, and Devin would like to see his brother’s first career foray into free agency end with another New England jersey that has “McCourty” on the back of it.

“I’m excited for him,” McCourty said at Boston University’s Play it Forward event on Friday, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. “I was hoping he would be out of Tennessee a couple years ago just to experience something different. I think obviously now everyone is saying ‘he’s going to come here, he should come here.’ But you never know. I hope we’re interested in him.”

Devin believes his brother primarily should be looking for a place where he’ll be able to play.

“He’s not at the point in his career where he just wants to sit on the bench,” Devin McCourty said. “He wants to get a chance to get out there and compete. I’m excited for him. It’s a little bit of the unknown, but he’s my brother, he should do all right. He should just tell people he’s related to me.”

Devin was surely joking, and by the way people already know the connection. Coach Bill Belichick surely does, given the whole Rutgers thing (they both played there), but Devin McCourty knows there’s no benefit in lobbying the person who runs the entire football operation, because Belichick won’t listen.

“If he did listen to me, I would definitely shoot him a text message and tell him, ‘I don’t know if he heard the news, but Jason McCourty is a free agent.,'” Devin said. “He’ll listen to me sometimes about my opinion on the deep middle, but scouting players, he stays away from me.”

Belichick probably knows that Jason McCourty is available. And Jason McCourty could fill a need in New England, if/when Malcolm Butler is traded.

  1. I hope the Pats pick him up to, he’ll be a fantastic 3rd or 4th CB depending on what happens with Butler and the draft.

    I doubt his brother wants to be known as a cheater.
    ========================

    No matter the day or time when a Pats article gets posted the patsanoia fueled alarm goes off in chipster’s sock puppet drawer. Stay obsessed little guy, your anguish is our joy.

  3. He would be an excellent pickup for The Patriots if first he learns to catch illegal deflated footballs in practice.
    Second, However more importantly he would have sign a confidentiality agreement that includes but limited to watching “illegally obtained practice film from 31 other NFL Teams”.
    Third, Learn to whine like a New England fans which requires you to look and sound like Norm from Cheers.
    Fourth, you have to be miserable 24/7 365 days a year even if your team wins. This part comes pretty easily because once you live in that area you realize you become miserable and just a downer to be around.

    Why he can’t cover anyone like his brother that’s why he wen to safety
    ===================

    Damn, it never ceases to amaze how bad you are at this. Devin McCourty was a 1st team All Pro as a rookie corner, converted to safety based on need. If you knew anything about the team you live to troll you’d know Belichick prizes versatile intelligent safeties but has a habit of dealing with corners like they grow on trees.
    You are dissing the wrong brother. If Jason was contributing to a team at the level his brother is then he wouldn’t be looking for work, lol

  5. I doubt his brother wants to be known as a cheater.

    Ouch, that really stings. I will have to soothe the sick burn by watching one on our 5 super bowl dvds. The only problem is which one……

    You couldn’t be more wrong. We’re happy as can be in New England with all of the constant winning. We know we’re lucky to have had it for so long, and it will continue.

    Excuse-makers like yourself are humorous because the obvious answer is always the real one–the Pats are better than your team. That’s all. Sorry you can’t deal with it well.

    Go conjure up more alternate reasons your team loses to the Patriots–science has proven that some people will go to odd lengths to placate the pleasure centers of their brains when reality is just too painful.

    He has 31 other teams where he can be known as a cheater.

    Since 31 teams supported the science denying fool that cheated the Patriots by blaming them for what cold weather does to footballs. That cheating by those 31 teams is scheduled to take place again during the 2017 NFL Draft.

    Any word on when the NFL plans on releasing the PSI information from the 2015 NFL season?

    The integrity & transparency of the NFL requires that the PSI information get released prior to the 2017 NFL Draft.

  8. One of the best off seasons for a SuperBowl Championship TEAM….
    That’s just got to really burn all the Trolls…
    Anyone the Pats add now is just more icing for the cake…..
    Who’s got it better than us??? NOBODY!!!
    Cheers!!!

    Agreed, he’ll probably avoid the Giants.

    That nonsense about “filming practices” was debunked years ago. Some people must take a lot longer than others to catch up on news.

  11. The only way he gets to New England is if Butler leaves in that Saints deal. Butler found out that he’s probably better off waiting and becoming a unrestricted free agent next year. The Patriots also aren’t going to give up on Cyrus Jones. For that reason, the defensive backfield will pretty much look like it did last year with Gilmore replacing Ryan. Gilmore, Butler, Rowe, Harmon, McCourty, Chung, and Jones make the defensive backfield a strength. Not a lot of opening for Jason McCourty.

  12. It would be nice if the NFL demonstrated some transparency and issued a press release containing the PSI information from the 2015 season prior to the 2017 NFL Draft.

    Then when the information shows that footballs often drop PSI during cold/wet games:

    • The NFL can demonstrates some integrity and reinstate the Patriots 2017 4th round pick.
    • The NFL can demonstrate more integrity and award the Patriots a 1st round compensation pick to make up for the one that was taken away in 2016. Getting the pick late is better than never.
    • The NFL can show even more integrity by awarding the Patriots a 2nd round compensation pick to make up for Tom Brady missing 25% of the 2016 season.

  13. Why does it appear that there are more individuals with press credentials intent on stealing jerseys than individuals having press credentials reminding Roger Goodell that he neglected to release the PSI information from the 2015 NFL season?

    Shouldn’t journalists also be reminding Roger Goodell that in 2014 he pledged transparency?

    To salvage the integrity of the NFL that PSI information from 2015 needs to be released prior to the 2017 NFL Draft.

    Classic boston homer deflection.

  15. More evidence of patriot detractor stupidity

    Stupidgate – where countless individuals were so stupid that they lacked a basic understanding of 7th grade science that they were easily duped into believing that footballs don’t drop PSI when taken outside on cold days.

    Despite videos being posted online showing footballs dropping PSI when placed in refrigerators, countless nimrods still subscribe to Roger Goodell science denying belief that someone let air out of footballs.

    One video can be found on the popular online video site. Just search for “DEFLATE GATE & WHY SCIENCE SAYS THE PATRIOTS DID NOT TAMPER WITH FOOTBALLS”

    ——————————————————–
    Wrong again!

    When it was first reported what the charges were, the Patriots set a speed record for releasing a player.

    Then the Patriots organization voluntarily bought back merchandise from fans with is his name on it.

    No team will ever sign him if he should be released. Even the pathetic team that you root for.

    And that’s Belichamp to you!

    Comments from Patriot detractors often demonstrate that Patriot detractors are constrained to the parroting of lame and tired “cheating” nonsense, abounding from an inexhaustible reservoir of stupidity.

    ==========================

    And yet you need to ask how it’s stupid, as if the obsessive patsanoia doesn’t speak for itself, smh.
    Poor chipster, sad to think just because you swap socks we don’t recognize that brand of stupidity. Much like you defended the stafford and beachside id’s in vain before you tripped up on them here you are doing it again. It’s time to move on, get some help son.
