Browns Add Needed Help To Secondary With CB Jason McCourty

Doyle BarkerMay 20, 2017

According to Fallon, McCourty's deal with the Browns is expected to be for two-years and total out at $6 million.

McCourty played for the Tennessee Titans the past eight seasons, but became a free agent after he was released on April 18. Sanu talked positively about Jackson as both a person and coach, and McCourty filed it away.

McCourty, who was coached by Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams in Tennessee said he's excited to join the Browns.

McCourty was impressed with the Browns during his visit and said he likes "what is brewing within this organization in Cleveland".

"I wanted to go somewhere where I felt I could come in and be a piece of the puzzle, whether it's helping with veteran leadership or contributing in any way I can on the field", he said.

In announcing McCourty's signing, Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown called McCourty a "good fit for our team" and an "asset for our defense". "This was an easy decision for me".

McCourty is coming off a season in which he posted 69 tackles and a pair of interceptions with the Titans, one year after missing significant time due to a groin injury.

McCourty told Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot Wednesday that he is open to playing safety for the team, though he will start off at cornerback. McCourty, by the way, will turn 30 years of age in October.

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

Gonzalez made 23 of 25 field goals, including a 59-yarder, for the Sun Devils in 2016. Four of the 10 draft picks are under contract: fourth-round cornerback Howard Wilson, fifth-round left tackle Rod Johnson, seventh-round running back Matthew Dayes and Gonzalez.
