Jason McCourty will stay with the Patriots

The McCourty twins will stay together for the 2019 season.

According to multiple reports, cornerback Jason McCourty will re-sign with the Patriots after joining his brother Devin in their secondary for the 2018 season. McCourty is signing a two-year deal while his brother is heading into the final year of his deal, so it remains to be seen if this will be their last year on the same team.

McCourty appeared in every game for the Patriots last year and started 12 regular season games as well as all three playoff contests. He finished the regular season with 70 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble.

McCourty also came up with one of the biggest plays in Super Bowl LIII when he tracked down and broke up a pass to Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks in the end zone with the Patriots clinging to a 3-0 lead in the second half.

  1. Excellent ! They were big in the secondary last season and helped give the Pats one of the better ones in the league.

    Believe most of the DBs are back this season so that’s very good news.

  2. Not a big splash signing, just a great one….. so many teams can’t see the forest thru the trees……
    Another key player back under contract……
    Bill doing it right yet again!!!

  3. Love it! Consummate pro and you can’t deny the value of having that twin mind power out there deep in the d backfield

  4. Darn. There goes a chance at a dynasty building 7th round compensatory draft pick.

  5. Sweet! The gang is getting back together and the Bennett and Simon moves are also big.

    With 5 picks in the top 100 and a nice draft class coming to full fruition from last year..

    Nice!

  6. Solid move. I’m sure it’s pretty reasonable money. Hopefully they can get Malcolm Brown under contract as well.

  7. That psychic connection that twins have is a real help when they are chasing receivers ans swapping positions on dynamic plays. They instinctively know what the other is doing.

  8. Since Eric Rowe is gone it was kind of a no-brainer, good that he signed for 2 years. Hopefully he won’t be playing in the 4th preseason game this year.

  9. “Since Eric Rowe is gone it was kind of a no-brainer”

    Losing Rowe is addition by subtraction. He never lived up to the hype in Philly and then didn’t live up to it in New England either.

  10. The three free agents the Pats have lost will each bring a pick, including two in third round, and would have cost over $40 million a year to keep.

    I think they did the right thing.

    What’s the next cheating scandal the Patriots will be involved in I wonder?

    ——–

    Hey I am a Dolphins fan too. But let’s be honest here, Coach Shula cheated as much if not more than anybody. Remember when he used to order the field be “wet own” before playing a faster team?

  12. There’s one set of brothers, now the question is whether the Pats will go for two sets. Was Marty Bennett was serious about joining Michael and, if so, will BB will give him a one-year deal?

    Still curious about whether there will be any deals for receivers (other than Bolden) before the draft.

    This is a routine signing has nothing to do about being a genius.

    That’s true. Belichick is a genius with or without this signing.
