Patriots' Jason McCourty: Re-signed for two years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the Patriots on a two-year contract, Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston reports.

The 31-year-old cornerback will thus continue to play in the same secondary with his twin brother, safety Devin McCourty, on the heels of solid 2018 campaign in which he recorded 70 tackles and an interception. The Patriots will likely deploy McCourty as their second or third cornerback, depending on the progression of 23-year-old J.C. Jackson.

Patriots' Jason McCourty: Wants to continue playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty plans to play football in 2019, Mark Daniels of The Providence Journal reports.

Both McCourty twins have confirmed their intention to continue playing, with only Devin under contract for 2019. Jason likely hopes to re-sign with the Patriots, but he apparently is willing to join another team if it doesn't work out. He started 12 of 16 regular-season games in 2018, piling up 70 tackles (54 solo), 10 passes defensed, one interception and a forced fumble, later adding nine tackles and four PDs in three playoff games.

Patriots' Jason McCourty: Records 70 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty finished up the 2018 regular season with 70 tackles and a pick in 15 games.

Though the 31-year-old has put up better IDP numbers during his career, McCourty no doubt relished the opportunity to play with his twin brother, Devin, at the NFL level. The cornerback is eligible to become a free agent this offseason, but it's not hard to imagine him re-upping for another year, with Devin McCourty under contract with New England through the 2019 season.

Patriots' Jason McCourty: Interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty recorded three tackles (all solo), two passes defensed, including an interception, and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Bills.

McCourty's interception was his first with the Patriots. On the season, he has 65 tackles (52 solo) and 10 passes defensed, including the one interception. Looking ahead, McCourty and the Patriots will take on the Jets in Week 17.

Patriots' Jason McCourty: Traded to New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns have traded McCourty to the Patriots along with a seventh-round draft pick in exchange for a sixth-round draft choice, ESPN's Pat McManamon reports.

In the process, McCourty will join his twin brother, Devin, who plays safety for the Patriots. Jason McCourty will help fill the void created by the free agent departure of Malcolm Butler, joining a cornerback corps that also includes Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe, Jonathan Jones and Cyrus Jones. In his only season with the Browns, the 30-year-old logged 65 tackles and three picks in 14 games.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Three interceptions in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty, who racked up seven tackles in Cleveland's Week 17 loss to the Steelers, ends the season with 65 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles.

The Browns signed McCourty to a two-year, $6 million contract this past offseason, and the veteran cornerback was a pleasant surprise, as he Cleveland's most reliable pass defender. McCourty will be 31 years old when 2018 kicks off and is expected to be the team's No. 1 cornerback again.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Posts season-high 10 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty accumulated a team-high 10 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 27-21 overtime loss to Green Bay.

A week after posting a season-high nine tackles, McCourty bested that effort against the Packers. The nine-year pro has 19 tackles over his last two contests and 51 for the year. He'll look to continue his hot streak Sunday against the Ravens.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Season-high nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty finished with a season-best nine tackles during Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Chargers.

McCourty has put together a lockdown defensive season as the leader in Cleveland's secondary, but on Sunday he was heavily involved in the tackling game. His nine tackles were his most since Oct. 27, 2016. Don't expect him to continue to rack up the tackle totals, though, but his three interceptions and two forced fumbles still makes him an interesting IDP play.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Upgraded to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (ankle) was a full participant during Friday's practice and no longer carries an injury designation heading into Sunday's contest versus the Lions.

McCourty is set to return to the field after a two-game absence, where his presence will be particularly valued against Matthew Stafford and Detroit's passing attack. The 30-year-old has three interceptions and two forced fumbles on the season.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

McCourty has sat out the Browns' last two games after injuring his ankle in mid-October, but had extra time to heal while the team was on bye for Week 9. It still remains to be seen if McCourty will be ready to play Sunday against the Lions, though if he's inactive again, the Browns could be without two of their top three corners, as Briean Boddy-Calhoun (hamstring) was also limited in Wednesday's practice.

Browns' Jason McCourty: No go Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Vikings in London, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

For the second game in a row, McCourty will be sidelined due to an ankle injury. In his stead, expect the Browns to trot out Jamar Taylor and Mike Jordan as the starting cornerbacks.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

McCourty will likely be sidelined for his second consecutive game Sunday, and his work in coverage will be truly missed. The eighth-year corner has racked up 24 tackles (19 solo), nine pass breakups, two forced fumbles and three interceptions, running one back for a touchdown. The 30-year-old continues to be a bright spot on Cleveland's roster, so his return couldn't come sooner.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Missing out on matchup with former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

After suffering the ankle injury in Thursday's practice, McCourty's status for the weekend was in jeopardy, and the Browns ultimately decided to hold out their top cornerback upon evaluating him in pregame warmups. With McCourty in street clothes for the matchup with his former team, it's expected that Briean Boddy-Calhoun will start at cornerback opposite Jamar Taylor, with Mike Jordan serving as the team's No. 3 option at the position. The 30-year-old McCourty leads the Browns with three interceptions and is tied for tops on the team with two forced fumbles.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

McCourty first popped up on the injury report Thursday and it seems he wasn't able to put in a full practice Friday, resulting in him getting hit with the questionable tag. The Browns have had McCourty on the field for 99.7 percent of their defensive snaps this season, so his potential absence would leave a massive void in the secondary. Official word on McCourty's status should come about 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. EDT kickoff.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty was a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to an ankle injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The Browns left McCourty off their injury report Wednesday, but he may have tweaked the ankle in that day's practice session and stayed on the field. The fact that McCourty wasn't excluded from Thursday's practice entirely suggests it's not a major concern, and the expectation remains that he'll play Sunday against the Titans, the team that drafted him back in 2009.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Pick-six in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty intercepted his third pass of the season and returned it for a touchdown during Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Texans. He also accumulated one tackle.

McCourty is Pro Football Focus' highest-graded cornerback with a 92.0 grade, as he has been excellent as a member of the Browns. He ranks second in the NFL in both interceptions (3) and passes defensed (9), and if he continues to be a ball hawk, he's worth an add in IDP leagues.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Picks off McCown in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty registered an interception and a forced fumble during Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Jets. He also added five tackles (four solo).

McCourty has been a turnover machine to start the season, logging two interceptions and two forced fumbles through the first five weeks. The former Titan signed a two-year contract with the Browns in the offseason and has been a very nice addition to Cleveland's secondary.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Signs two-year contract with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (shoulder/chest) officially signed a two-year contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

It was reported earlier Tuesday that the two sides were nearing an agreement, but it's now become official and McCourty is set to join the Browns. He'll immediately join the team as a playmaker at corner and could start opposite Joe Haden right out of the gates. According to Tony Grossi of ESPN, the Browns could give him some work at free safety as well, so don't be surprised if the team experiments with him at a few different positions during training camp.

Jason McCourty: Expects to sign contract with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (shoulder/chest) is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Browns, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

McCourty has spent his entire eight-year career with the Titans but was waived in April following a 2016 campaign where he recorded 69 tackles, 12 passes defensed and two interceptions across 14 games. He should immediately address a need for the Browns once signed after the team recently lost fourth-round draft pick Howard Wilson to a broken kneecap during rookie minicamp. Look for a deal to be finalized over the next few days, barring any last-second snags in contract talks.

Jason McCourty: Released by Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty (shoulder/chest) was released by the Titans on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

McCourty's release comes after he spent the first eight seasons of his NFL career with Tennessee. The 29-year old cornerback had 69 tackles and 12 passes defensed, including two interceptions, in 14 games played last season. His release leaves the Titans with LeShaun Sims and Logan Ryan as the team's starting corners, though they could add a rookie early on in the draft. McCourty -- presumably past the aches and pains that he dealt with last last season -- is now a free agent and likely won't struggle finding a new club to sign with. The Patriots, who roster McCourty's twin brother Devin, are an intriguing option on that front.
