Browns Add Needed Help To Secondary With CB Jason McCourty

He reportedly received a two-year contract for $6 million, including $2 million guaranteed.

McCourty, 29, was released by Tennessee after spending his entire 8-year career with the Titans. In talking with Sashi (Brown) and coach Hue Jackson, it was obvious.

And if he was unhappy with the idea of seeing his playing time cut in Tennessee, it doesn't seem as if McCourty would be walking into a better situation in Cleveland, where Joe Haden and Jamar Taylor are the starters on the outside and the Browns are looking for players who will still be with the team when the real success starts in 2019. "He's a good fit for our team and we feel his experience and versatility will be an asset for our defense".

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.

"He has talked to me about that some", McCourty told Cabot. 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. Last season, he started 14 games and led the Titans defensive backs with 64 tackles. "This was an easy decision for me". He played 108 games over eight seasons with the Titans, starting 90, with 13 interceptions and 72 pass breakups. McCourty was honored as Tennessee's Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2014 for his performance on the field and his dedication to the community.

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

In other news, the Browns announced they signed seventh-round draft pick Zane Gonzalez. That depth became an even bigger issue when rookie cornerback and fourth-round pick Howard Wilson broke his kneecap during rookie minicamp this past weekend. He is the FBS all-time leader with 96 field goals and 494 points.
