Cornerback Jason McCourty is signing a two-year deal to stay with the New England Patriots, according to multiple reports Wednesday. McCourty, 31, played all 19 games (including playoffs) for the Super Bowl LIII champions in his first season with the Patriots in 2018. He tallied 70 tackles and one interception during the regular season.
After nine seasons with the Tennessee Titans (2009-16) and Cleveland (2017), McCourty joined the Patriots in a March 2018 trade with the Browns. The move reunited him with his twin brother, New England safety Devin McCourty. Jason McCourty delivered one of the key defensive plays in Super Bowl LIII when he broke up a pass intended for Los Angeles Rams receiver Brandin Cooks in the end zone. The Patriots were leading 3-0 late in the third quarter at the time and went on to win, 13-3.
