CB - MIA
Free-agent DB Jason McCourty reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the Dolphins Thursday.
McCourty agrees to a one-year deal with Miami and reunites with Dolphins’ HC Brian Flores. He racked up 30 solo tackles, 12 assists, and three passes defensed for the Patriots in 2020. McCourty adds a veteran presence to the Dolphins’ secondary and is expected to be behind Xavien Howard and Byron Jones on the cornerback depth chart.
The New York Giants hosted Jason McCourty Friday, according to Ian Rapoport, and are exploring a possible move in the future.
McCourty totaled 30 tackles and three passes defensed last season. He'll be 34 at the start of next season.
New England Patriots number two corner Jason McCourty has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Houston Texans.
McCourty is in the midst of one of the best seasons of his career, and his loss will likely be felt by the Patriots. With Stephon Gilmore expected to travel with Deandre Hopkins, Will Fuller gets an upgrade. Fuller could very well end up Deshaun Watson's number one target tonight, and is worth captain consideration in single game DFS contests.
Jason McCourty may be forced to shift over to safety in Week 3 due to dwindling depth at the position. Starting strong safety Patrick Chung does not look likely to play after sustaining a concussion in Week 2. Backup Nate Ebner has also been limited in practice this week with a hip injury.
The Patriots run a lot of three safety sets and if they plan to do so next week McCourty may be playing some safety. The biggest beneficiary here still remains Duron Harmon who projects to fill in for Patrick Chung while he is out.
Cleveland Browns defensive back Jason McCourty had a big game for his team in Week 6. The veteran corner had one tackle, two passes defended, and an interception, which he returned for a touchdown.
McCourty has been solid in his first season with the Browns, logging 24 total tackles, three interceptions, and two forced fumbles. He will look to stay hot in Week 7 when he takes on his old team, the Tennessee Titans.
