Free agent DB McCourty signs 2-year deal with Browns

His agent, Andy Simms, confirmed the deal and McCourty told NFL Network he is going to sign a 2-year $6 million contract that included $2 million guaranteed.

Williams was "a big part" of the reason McCourty signed the two-year, $6 million contract.

Jason McCourty was cut by the Tennessee Titans in April after eight seasons with the team.

McCourty would potentially fill the opening created by rookie Howard Wilson's knee injury, though McCourty would definitely project as a starter ahead of the fourth-round pick. "That meant a lot for me", McCourty said Wednesday during an interview with Cleveland Browns Daily.




Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams coached McCourty in 2013 when Williams was a senior defensive assistant with the Titans.

After being named a starting cornerback in 2011, McCourty led Tennessee during the past six seasons with 11 interceptions. Keep in mind, the corner was a three-time team captain during his time with the Titans. He missed the final two games with a sprained shoulder and chest contusion.

The Browns have struggled for years to effectively tackle the opposition, and keeping the other team out of the end zone would be a welcomed development after seeing the Browns give up an average of 28.25 points a game last season. He had played in all but one game the previous four seasons. If he were to make the switch, that would follow a pattern established by his twin brother Devon, who switched from cornerback to safety with the New England Patriots and has been successful at both positions.

McCourty, the twin brother of Devin McCourty of the Patriots, has 13 interceptions and 72 passes defenses in his National Football League career.
