Browns could be looking to sign veteran CB Jason McCourty

Jason McCourty

According to fellow NFL Network reporter Courtney Fallon, McCourty will sign a 2-year, $6.0 million contract with the Browns - a deal New England would also have been able to hand out given its salary cap situation.

McCourty spent the first eight years of his National Football League career with the Tennessee Titans, but was released in April for reportedly being unwilling to take a pay cut and the possibility of a decrease in his playing time.

"In talking with Sashi and Coach Hue Jackson, it was obvious", McCourty said.

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. Turning 30 in August, McCourty should see plenty of playing time under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who he played for in 2013 while still in Tennessee.

"After taking my visit it became clear what is brewing within this organization in Cleveland", said McCourty.

"He has talked to me about that some", McCourty told Cabot. At Arizona State, Gonzalez last season won the Lou Groza Award, given yearly to the nation's top kicker.

After missing all but four games in 2015, McCourty returned to the field to make 14 starts in 2016. I want to be a part of something where I felt like I'm wanted and where I feel like I'm part of a family.

The Browns will announce Wednesday they signed McCourty. Not much has been done this offseason to address the cornerback position, and fifth-round pick Howard Wilson suffered a fracture kneecap during rookie minicamp to further thin Cleveland's depth there. He is the FBS all-time leader with 96 field goals and 494 points.
