CB Jason McCourty Says He’s Coming to the Browns with a Two-Year Deal

The Browns have added another piece to their defensive backfield, as former Titans and current free-agent cornerback Jason McCourty will be joining Cleveland on a two-year deal.

McCourty told NFL Network’s Courtney Fallon he’s coming to the Browns with a $6 million dollar deal, including $2 million guaranteed.

McCourty was tossed into the free-agent pool in April after the Titans released him following eight seasons with the team. He started 90 games in Tennessee and piled up 13 interceptions. A sixth-round selection out of Rutgers in the 2009 NFL Draft, the 29-year-old veteran was a three-time team captain with the Titans.

In Cleveland, McCourty lands as an instant starter alongside Pro Bowl cover man Joe Haden. The Browns also have Jamar Taylor and Briean Boddy-Calhoun at the position, but McCourty adds something else: proven experience in coordinator Gregg Williams’ scheme after the duo worked together in 2013.

McCourty played 14 games in 2016 for the Titans with two picks and 69 tackles. He was hurt for 12 games with a groin injury in 2015.
