Patriots safety Devin McCourty said on the Sports Spectrum podcast that he plans to play football in 2019.

Fantasy Impact

McCourty said during Super Bowl week that he would consider retirement if the Patriots were to beat the Rams. After having a couple weeks to think about it, he decided he wanted to continue his playing career with the hopes of bringing a seventh title to New England. “I think once you get a chance to step away for a couple weeks now, you’re like, ‘Yeah, man, I still do want to be around these other young guys that come in,'” McCourty said. The Patriots will surely be happy to welcome back one of the key pieces of their defense for at least one more year.

Devin McCourty likely to consider retirement if Patriots win Super Bowl

Patriots safety Devin McCourty acknowledged on Super Bowl Opening Night that if New England were to win Sunday, he may opt to retire. “I don’t know for sure,” McCourty said from his podium Monday. “I do look at it if we can win this game, win it with my brother, I don’t know what else I could do that would top that. I’m just trying to make sure I enjoy this season and enjoy these last couple of days with these guys.”

McCourty has been a key element of the New England secondary since they selected him 27th overall in the 2010 draft. Sunday’s game against the Rams will be his fifth Super Bowl appearance. This time, he will be joined by his twin brother Jason who is set to play in his first. Devin sounds like a guy wanting to walk off into the sunset as a champion.
