Free agent DB McCourty signs with Browns

Arizona State Sun Devils place kicker Zane Gonzalez kicks in the first half October 15 in Boulder, Colo.

The Cleveland Browns agreed to terms with defensive back Jason McCourty, formerly of the Tennessee Titans, on a two-year contract. McCourty's brother, Devin, plays safety for the New England Patriots, who showed "some interest" after the cornerback was released by the Tennessee Titans, the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe reported Tuesday.

McCourty was a sixth-round pick of the Titans in 2009 and has totaled 517 tackles, 13 interceptions, 91 passes defensed, six forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and a sack.

Update: According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the Browns are expected to sign Jason McCourty, barring a late snag. He gives the team experience and depth. For what it's worth, the only Browns cornerback to rank better was Jamar Taylor (19th).

McCourty will bring some veteran insurance if Joe Haden has another injury filled season in 2017.

McCourty was impressed with the Browns during his visit and said he likes "what is brewing within this organization in Cleveland". "For me, that made it an easy decision".

"Both sides, we talked, but I just think it's not just money when you're talking about changing things", McCourty said. They not only got McCourtey for a nice deal, but added plenty of talent as well as someone who is familiar with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' defense, with the duo together in Tennessee in 2013.

McCourty said he will begin his Browns career at cornerback, where he's played his entire National Football League career, while also learning other positions in the defensive backfield as a way to maximize his impact. I want to be a part of something where I felt like I am wanted and where I feel like I'm part of a family.
