Could Sunday’s game be Devin McCourty’s last?
The Patriots safety said if New England defeats the Rams in Super Bowl 53, retirement could be an option.
“I don’t know for sure, man. But I do look at it — if we can win this game, winning with my brother [Jason], I don’t know what else I could do that could top that,” McCourty told Deion Sanders on Monday (via ESPN). “So I’m just trying to make sure I enjoy this season and enjoy these last couple days with these guys.”
McCourty, 31, has been with the Patriots for nine seasons. His twin, Jason McCourty, has been with the team since last offseason after being acquired from the Browns.
Both the McCourty twins said playing on the same team was a dream of theirs, and a dream of their mother’s, as well.
“I’m so grateful because I get to see them live out their dream,” their mother Phyllis Harrell told ESPN. “I didn’t tell my sons this, but I did tell their wives: If they win the Super Bowl together, I’m going to grab some of the confetti and lay out on the field and do an angel.”
This offseason, Jason McCourty is scheduled to become a free agent, while Devin McCourty has one year left on his contract with New England.
