The Patriots acquired Jason McCourty in a trade with the Browns last offseason, and now they’ve decided to extend his time with the team.
New England has signed McCourty to a new two-year deal, according to NFL Network.

McCourty was a huge part of the Patriots’ Super Bowl 53 victory over the Rams when he broke up a sure-fire touchdown pass to receiver Brandin Cooks in the end zone.
He will continue to play with his twin brother Devin, who has one year remaining on a five-year, $47 million deal he signed with the Patriots in 2015.
Jason McCourty was a sixth-round pick by the Titans in 2009, while Devin McCourty was drafted by the Patriots in the first round in 2010.
