Jason McCourty likes what's

The Cleveland Browns added needed cornerback depth on Tuesday when they agreed to a two-year contract with free agent Jason McCourty, agent Andy Simms told the Akron Beacon Journal.

Veteran cornerback Jason McCourty was a salary cap casualty for the Tennessee Titans, who released the defensive back in mid-April following eight seasons with the organization. In talking with Sashi (Brown) and coach Hue Jackson, it was obvious.

McCourty, the twin brother of Devin McCourty of the Patriots, has 13 interceptions and 72 passes defenses in his National Football League career. "He's a good fit for our team and we feel his experience and versatility will be an asset for our defense". "That meant a lot for me", McCourty said Wednesday during an interview with Cleveland Browns Daily. The energy flowed through the entire building with everybody I talked to all the way to the players. He had a solid, mostly healthy season in 2016 (14 games), with 69 total tackles, 12 pass breakups and two interceptions, but his $7 million salary for this year was prohibitive for the Titans. 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.

Second to none: Jeter's No. 2 retired by Yanks
The struggles of players like A-Rod on baseball's biggest stage only highlighted just how remarkable Jeter's playoff career was. Eventually nothing is next because youre retired, but we all had those same mindsets and thats why I think we had success .

Gonzalez played in 51 games at Arizona State and won the Lou Groza Award past year as the nation's top kicker.

But McCourty will turn 30 before the start of the 2017 regular season, and players who hit 30 and are not named Joe Thomas are quickly falling out of favor in Berea. He is the FBS all-time leader with 96 field goals and 494 points.

The Browns need help at cornerback after fourth-round draft pick Howard Wilson suffered a fractured kneecap Friday during the first practice of rookie minicamp.
