Jason McCourty Agrees To Two-Year Deal With Browns

According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, via McCourty's agent, the veteran cornerback and the Browns have agreed to a two-year deal.

Jason McCourty signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Browns that has $2 million guaranteed, he told NFL Media's Courtney Fallon.

Entering his ninth National Football League season, McCourty (5-11, 195) has played in 108 games with 90 starts for the Tennessee Titans. In talking with Sashi [Brown] and coach Hue Jackson, it was obvious.

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. He reunites with Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who was a senior assistant defensive coach with the Titans in 2013. He gives the team experience and depth. Last season, he started 14 games and led the Titans defensive backs with 64 tackles. He started 14 games a year ago, picked off two passes, broke up 18 and led the Titans defensive backs with 64 tackles.

Representatives from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund and its Ministry of Finance have not publicly commented on the story. Trump will also visit Israel and the Vatican, and later on Brussels and Sicily for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported that McCourty and the Browns met on Monday and the defensive back is scheduled to visit the team's facility on Tuesday. McCourty, by the way, will turn 30 years of age in October. Gonzalez won the 2016 Lou Groza Award, which is given annually to the nation's top kicker.

The Browns also announced they have signed seventh-round draft choice Zane Gonzalez.

After fourth-round cornerback Howard Wilson suffered a fractured kneecap at rookie minicamp, the need for help was real at the position. He finished his career as the FBS all-time leader in field goals made (96) and points by a kicker (494).
