Free agent DB McCourty signs 2-year deal with Browns

Free agent DB McCourty signs 2-year deal with Browns

McCourty only played in four games in 2015 because of injuries, but bounced back in 2016 to play in 14 games.

"That's the plan", he said Wednesday in a phone interview after his signing became official. Cleveland offers excellent opportunity for playing time, as the rebuilding Browns have questionable veteran depth and surprisingly little young talent for as many draft picks as they've had the past two seasons. The former University of Houston cornerback is expected to miss a significant amount of the 2017 season.

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. 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.

And Kermorgant turned to hit a shot from 15 yards that keeper Marcus Bettinelli did superbly to tip round the post. Reading boss Jaap Stam felt the moment was one of the best of his illustrious footballing career.

Cleveland was victimized by opponents last season, finishing the year as the 21st-ranked defense in the NFL. After being named the team's starting corner in 2011, McCourty has led Tennessee during the past six seasons with 11 interceptions and 78 passes defensed, based on coaches' film.

The 29-year-old Rutgers product spent the first eight years of his career with the Titans, who selected him in the sixth round of the 2009 draft.

McCourty has registered 13 interceptions during his National Football League career and two of those came in games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and on throws by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. McCourty was the Titans' longest-tenured player and a captain. He will be reunited again with wide receiver Kenny Britt in Cleveland.
