The Browns have talked to Jason McCourty about moving to safety.
It's no surprise given the Browns' weak depth chart at safety. McCourty will start out at corner, but he could end up working at multiple spots during the offseason program. Coach Hue Jackson did say he wants McCourty to settle into one position before the start of the season. May 17 - 7:30 PM

Browns agreed to terms with CB Jason McCourty, formerly of the Titans, on a two-year, $6 million contract.

The deal includes $2 million guaranteed. The Browns were McCourty's first visit after he was cut by the Titans last month. Going on 30, McCourty was limited to four games by groin issues in 2015, but bounced back as a mid-range starter in 2016. Cleveland offers excellent opportunity for playing time, as the rebuilding Browns have questionable veteran depth and surprisingly little young secondary talent for as many draft picks as they've had the past two seasons. Drafted by Jeff Fisher in Tennessee, McCourty will be reuniting with DC Gregg Williams, whom he played for in 2013.

Free agent CB Jason McCourty is meeting with the Browns.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports McCourty is taking a physical, suggesting both sides are serious about a deal. McCourty missed all but four games in 2015 with groin injuries, but he returned as a reasonable starter last year. As long as the money is right, McCourty has the look of a low-risk, upside signing.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, free agent CB Jason McCourty "might be fortunate" to earn half of the $7 million salary he was scheduled to earn from the Titans in 2017.

McCourty was let go by the Titans on Thursday, partially because he balked at taking a pay cut. One "informed opinion" told Reiss that Leon Hall's one-year, $2 million contract with the Giants last season might be a good comparison for McCourty, though Reiss feels he could do "a bit better than that." With Malcolm Butler pushing for a trade, McCourty could make sense for the Patriots, who employ Jason's twin brother Devin at free safety.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss believes New England and free agent CB Jason McCourty is an "ideal match."

McCourty was informed he'll be released on Thursday. He's entering his age-30 season and has been a pretty reliable starter for much of his career. The Patriots have been in the market for cornerback help after losing Logan Ryan to the Titans as a free agent and RFA Malcolm Butler possibly leaving town. McCourty, of course, is also Patriots FS Devin McCourty's twin brother.

Titans released CB Jason McCourty.

The move clears $7 million in cap space and leaves behind no dead money. The No. 203 overall pick of the 2009 draft, McCourty was the Titans' longest-tenured player. Per USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the sides couldn't agree on a restructured contract. McCourty was mentioned as a candidate for release as far back as January. Limited to four games by injury in 2015, McCourty's play took a dive last season. He turns 30 in August. Dots will be connected between McCourty and his brother Devin in New England, but the Pats aren't in the habit of handing out feel-good contracts.

Terry McCormick of TitanInsider considers RCB Jason McCourty a candidate for release.

McCourty was passable at cornerback this season but is coming off a shoulder injury and is due a $7 million salary. Even if the Titans keep him, McCormick believes McCourty would "have to fight to retain his starting spot." McCourty has spent his entire eight-year career in Tennessee and might be amenable to a pay cut.

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (chest, shoulder) is questionable for Week 17.

McCourty looks on track to return after practicing the last two days. He’ll be a game-time decision against Houston.

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (chest, shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

It's McCourty's first practice since injuring himself on the first play of Week 15. McCourty didn't do much on Thursday but the team plans to increase his reps on Friday. He'll be a game-time decision Sunday against Houston.

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (chest, shoulder) is hoping to practice by the end of the week.

His goal is to suit up for Sunday's season finale against Houston. McCourty hasn't played or practiced since getting hurt on the first play of Week 15. Antwon Blake drew the start in McCourty's place last week versus Jacksonville.

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (shoulder, chest) is out for Week 16 against the Jaguars.

McCourty hurt himself on the first play of Sunday's win over Kansas City and didn't practice all week. His absence is good news for Allen Robinson, though we wouldn't trust him as anything more than a WR4.

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (shoulder, chest) is expected to miss Week 16 against the Jaguars.

McCourty suffered a sprained shoulder and a chest contusion Sunday against the Chiefs. He hasn't practiced this week and appears to be headed for his first absence of the season. Antwon Blake will likely start opposite Brice McCain Saturday in Jacksonville.

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (bruised knee) is expected to be fine for Week 14.

McCourty has the Titans' bye to heal up. The 29 year old is in the midst of a solid, if unspectacular, campaign.

Titans CB Jason McCourty (groin surgery) confirmed he is 100 percent.

McCourty made only four appearances between two groin operations last season. Going on 29, McCourty also once again shot down the idea of converting to safety.
Mon, Apr 18, 2016 01:39:00 PM

Titans GM Jon Robinson said he is expecting big things from CB Jason McCourty this season.

McCourty was limited to just four games last season by a nagging groin injury. The Titans' pass defense was solid early, but McCourty's injury as well as OLB Derrick Morgan's shoulder issue torpedoed the secondary in the second half of the season. If McCourty can regain his form and the Titans find some more help at safety, the defense should be solid.
