Devin's Will To Make His Brother A Patriot:
Devin's twin brother, Jason McCourty, who also attended Rutgers, has played in the National Football League for the Tennessee Titans in the past and has currently grabbed the interest of Cleveland Browns. But now, Devin has expressed his desire to make Jason a patriot after Jason was released by the Tennessee Titans.
Back in an interview in April 2017, he said,
“I’m excited for him,”
“I was hoping he would be out of Tennessee a couple years ago just to experience something different. I think obviously now everyone is saying ‘he’s going to come here, he should come here.’ But you never know. I hope we’re interested in him.”
Devin also added,
“Like I’ve said before, we’ve loved to play together, but I think first and foremost, he has to do what’s kind of right for his family and where he could actually play and be out there playing,”
“He’s not at the point in his career where he just wants to sit on the bench. He wants to get a chance to get out there and compete.”
But reports are there that the Cleveland Browns are set to sign Jason McCourty.
Regardless of the team, we would like to wish the brothers all the very best for their career in the days ahead.
