Cleveland Browns to sign CB Jason McCourty

Cleveland Browns to sign CB Jason McCourty”

According to multiple national media reports, the Browns held meetings with and intend to sign veteran NFL cornerback Jason McCourty to a two-year contract. Rookie fourth round pick Howard Wilson suffered a broken kneecap during last weekend's rookie minicamp.

Williams, the Browns' fiery defensive coordinator, was a senior assistant defensive coach with the Titans in 2013.

NFL Network first reported McCourty was expected to join the Browns, adding he had dinner with the coaches Monday night and took a physical for the team Tuesday during a free-agent visit to its headquarters.

The Browns have struggled for years to effectively tackle the opposition, and keeping the other team out of the end zone would be a welcomed development after seeing the Browns give up an average of 28.25 points a game last season. Over his eight-year stint in Tennessee, including being a full-time starter in his final six seasons with the team, McCourty totaled 496 tackles, 13 interceptions, 72 passes defended, six forced fumbles, five fumbles recovered, and two touchdowns in 108 games (90 starts). Briean Boddy-Calhoun (71st) and Joe Haden (85th) filled out the rest of the top 100. McCourty was also a three-year defensive captain during his time with the Titans.

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. He was originally a sixth-round draft pick out of Rutgers, where he played with his twin brother, Devin, who plays for the New England Patriots.

McCourty, the twin brother of Devin McCourty of the Patriots, has 13 interceptions and 72 passes defenses in his National Football League career.
