Free agent DB McCourty signs 2-year deal with Browns

Free agent DB McCourty signs 2-year deal with Browns

Free agent defensive back Jason McCourty has signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns.

The deal is worth up to $6 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 29-year-old spent his first eight seasons in Tennessee before being released by the Titans on April 17. 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. His assimilation into one of the youngest groups in the National Football League will be buoyed by a past relationship with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who spent his 2013 with the Titans as a senior assistant.

The Titans cut McCourty last month after the 2 sides couldn't agree on a restructured contract since he was originally scheduled to make $7 million in 2017.

Lighthizer Backs Reversing `Dangerous' American Trade Trajectory
Any deal, however, would need agreement from the US sugar producers who brought an anti-dumping case against Mexican competitors. The U.S. sugar lobby wants Mexico to export less refined sugar and has become emboldened since Trump took office.

After being named a starting cornerback in 2011, McCourty led Tennessee during the past six seasons with 11 interceptions. By comparison, this is how PFF ranked the Browns' top three cornerbacks in 2016: Joe Haden 85th, Jamar Taylor 19th and Briean Boddy-Calhoun 71st. He missed the final two games of the season due to a sprained shoulder and chest contusion.

Additionally, McCourty intercepted 13 passes, which he returned for 99 yards, defended 73 others and forced seven fumbles.

As to Williams, he's definitely "crazy" - as the Saints bounty scandal and the cartoonish comments caught on tape during a pregame meeting before a playoff game with the 49ers previously established.

Jason was expected to join his twin brother Devin and play for the New England Patriots.
