Patriots FS Devin McCourty agreed to reduce 2016 his base salary by $3.74 million.

The entire $3.74 million was converted into a signing bonus, so he's not losing any money. The moves frees up $2.8 million in cap space. McCourty is under contract through 2019.

The Patriots have ruled out both FS Devin McCourty (ankle) and SS Pat Chung (foot) for Week 16 against the Jets.

McCourty has a high ankle sprain and will probably end up missing a month or more. Chung has been battling his foot injury off and on for the last month. The absences of McCourty and Chung could make the Patriots more vulnerable in the middle of the field, where Eric Decker runs most of his routes.

Patriots FS Devin McCourty (ankle) returned to a limited practice Friday and is questionable for Week 15 against the Titans.

McCourty is thought to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which is usually a multi-week injury. McCourty is still unlikely to play this week, but the limited session suggests he has a good shot for Week 16. Duron Harmon will start if McCourty cannot go.

Patriots S Devin McCourty has a high-ankle sprain.

It's a multi-week injury. McCourty could miss the rest of the regular season, but should be fine for the playoffs. Duron Harmon will start in McCourty's place.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports X-rays on Patriots S Devin McCourty's ankle were negative.

Rapoport reports he is dealing with a sprain. McCourty may miss a week or two, but it does not sound like this is a serious injury. Duron Harmon replaced McCourty after he exited Sunday night.

Patriots S Devin McCourty was noncommittal about moving to corner.

"It didn’t feel great, and I don’t think it looked great," McCourty said. "So we’ll see." McCourty struggled at right corner in last week's game, giving up a 45-yard touchdown to Brandin Cooks. He’s been a mainstay at safety the last three years, but could be forced to play outside with New England’s sub-average cornerback options. Duron Harmon is McCourty's backup at safety.

Patriots S Devin McCourty appeared at right cornerback in Saturday's preseason game against the Saints.

McCourty entered the league as a cornerback but has played safety full-time since 2012. It's a clear indication the Patriots are unhappy with their depth at cornerback. McCourty struggled in his return to corner, getting burned by Brandin Cooks for a 45-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Duron Harmon filled in for McCourty at his usual free safety position. It's unclear if this is a permanent move for McCourty or just something the Pats are experimenting with.

Patriots S Devin McCourty has seen snaps at corner this week in practice.

There was talk McCourty could return to corner following the departures of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner this offseason. McCourty said during OTAs he would prefer to stay at safety, but he would do whatever the coaches decide. Where he plays in Saturday's preseason game will be one of the most interesting storylines to watch.

Devin McCourty would prefer to stay at free safety.

There's been talk of McCourty shifting to cornerback following the departures of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. He finally addressed it on Thursday. "I want to play safety," McCourty said at OTAs. "But it’s out of my control so whatever the coaches decide is what it will have to be." McCourty finished eighth out of 87 qualifiers in PFF's safety grades last season.

The Patriots have used Devin McCourty at his usual free safety position throughout OTAs.

McCourty came into the league as a cornerback but switched to safety full-time in 2012. The bigger need is at cornerback, and some had speculated McCourty might move back there following the departures of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. Due to the loss of their man-coverage specialists, expect the Patriots to lean on more zone in the secondary this season.

Patriots re-signed FS Devin McCourty to a five-year, $47.5 million contract with $28.5 million guaranteed.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars, Giants, and Eagles all made a "hard push" to lure McCourty out of Foxboro. The question now becomes whether the Patriots will be able to retain both McCourty and Darrelle Revis, the latter of whom is owed a $12.5 million option bonus on Monday. McCourty won't turn 28 until August and has been one of the league's most dominant center-field safeties since converting from cornerback. McCourty has eight interceptions and five forced fumbles over the past three seasons. He patrols the deep middle, is an above-average tackler, and can cover man to man when needed.

The Patriots are "working to keep" free agent FS Devin McCourty.

The Eagles seem to be their primary competition. There is some feeling the Patriots may have to choose between McCourty and Darrelle Revis, but in an ideal world they would keep both. New England finally built one of the NFL's top defenses in 2014. A huge reason for that was the play of McCourty.
Sun, Mar 8, 2015 08:40:00 PM

"Multiple sources" tell Yahoo's Rand Getlin the Eagles have made a "strong push" to position themselves to sign free agent FS Devin McCourty.

If the 2015 offseason is beginning to remind you of a certain recent Eagles offseason, you're not alone. The Eagles are going all-in on free agency, already landing Byron Maxwell and Frank Gore, and remaining in the running for McCourty, Tramon Williams, and others. It's unclear where Philly's top competition for McCourty will come from. The Giants are rumored to have interest, and we can't rule out McCourty staying in Foxboro just yet.
