Patriots' Devin McCourty open to 'player-friendly' franchise tag
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Patriots safety Devin McCourty told reporters that he would be open to being franchise tagged before hitting free agency on March 10. McCourty said that although a tag would be the worst-case scenario scenario for him, it is "player-friendly" nowadays, according to Phil Perry of Comcast Sports Northeast.

The Patriots have until March 2 to place the tag on McCourty, which will be approximately $9 million next season.

"I've kind of broken it down as worst-case scenario would be that I get franchised and come back to play for another year here," McCourty said. "To me that’s no reason to stress. I love it here. The franchise tag is player-friendly now. It's a good number. If I hit free agency, I hope there's some teams that want me to play there. Hopefully that goes over well. It's still exciting."

Patriots safety Devin McCourty hopes to return to New England
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Patriots safety Devin McCourty said after winning the Super Bowl Sunday, he is hoping to return to the team in 2015.

"I hope not. We'll see, but I hope not," McCourty said when asked if it was his last game in a Patriots uniform. "This ride has been incredible -- being in the Super Bowl twice and winning it once -- there's not much a player can ask for except for being at home and this is home."

McCourty played all 16 games for New England in 2014, totaling 68 tackles and grabbing two interceptions. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason after spending his first five seasons with the Patriots.

Patriots get the best of Colts' Hilton in two matchups this season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

In two losses against the Patriots this season, including Sunday's 45-7 loss in the AFC title game, Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton was bottled up offensively. Hilton had just three catches for 24 yards in a 42-20 loss Nov. 16 and had one catch for 36 yards Sunday.

"Coach (Bill) Belichick, he did the same thing, had the same game plan -- Kyle Arrington on me, (safety Devin McCourty) over the top," Hilton said, per ESPN. "They took away everything. When I tried to go across the middle, they had the linebackers drop. The linebackers hit me to try to disrupt me. It pretty much was the same game plan as last time. They did a pretty good job of taking me away." 

Patriot coach Bill Belichick praised Arrington's effort against Hilton, who is headed to the Pro Bowl after totaling 82 catches for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season. 

"You know Kyle really stepped up; played T.Y. good," Belichick said. "T.Y. is a great receiver. He’s got outstanding speed and quickness, and he’s a tough guy to cover on all routes: short, intermediate, deep. He had a great catch on the sideline dragging his feet. It was a perfect throw and a great catch. But that’s what it’s like playing against them. But Kyle competed really well. He jammed, and he and Devin did a real good job on T.Y."
