Veteran NFL defensive back Jason McCourty is calling it quits from the NFL.

McCourty was a free agent.

He announced his retirement on Instagram on Friday.

McCourty, who turns 35 next month, played 13 seasons in the NFL with the Titans, Browns, Dolphins and Patriots. He finished last season on injured reserve with the Dolphins.

He totaled 18 interceptions, 744 tackles and nine forced fumbles.

McCourty is the identical twin of Patriots safety Devin McCourty, and the brothers became the first twins to play in a Super Bowl together in LIII.

The Titans made Jason McCourty a sixth-round choice in 2009.

  1. So, by allowing McCourty go as a free agent doesn’t BB break his rule to cut or trade all his good players before their inevitable decline? Maybe his cupboard is bare. Maybe he and tb6 think he can buy a team.

  2. Key end zone breakup in the Super Bowl against the Rams. Not as good as his brother but you could argue his play got his brother a ring.

  3. J-Mac going full blast and THROTTLING Cooks is the unsung play of our super bowl championship in 2018

    Clearly you didn’t read the article. Jason was a member of the Dolphins last year.

    It was a great play but Goff helped by throwing it there way too late. If he saw Cooks sooner that’s a TD imo.

    How Goff made a Super Bowl is a head scratcher.

  6. Good player…..played well for the Pats. He is retiring after earning family-tree changing wealth. You have to love America.

    Clearly he is NOT overly observant

  8. Thank you for helping seal the 2nd dynasty of the Cap Era and being part of the historical defense only allowing 3 points in a SB, something that will never happen again.

  9. Solid player…great trade by the Pats. Hope he is able to enjoy retirement…just sound, solid, good people the McCourty’s.

    Regarding Goff the Pats did something in that game that was the difference maker…they would show a defensive look and as soon as the comms between Goff and McVay got cut…they would change it completely. Deer in the headlights type of situation and the Rams offense just never clicked in that game!

    As mentioned above… crucial play by Jason on that potential TD pass… and a gentleman named Thuney winning his one on one match ups come crunch time against the best player in Football also helped 🙂

  10. Lemme guess Tommy fan club. Brady and his 71 rating won this game. It was all Brady. 😂
