Jason McCourty will return to New England Patriots alongside twin brother Devin

The first set of twin brothers to play in and win a Super Bowl will get a chance to do it again.

Less than three weeks after New England Patriots safety Devin McCourty announced on the Sports Spectrum Podcast that he’ll return for a 10th season, his twin brother Jason, a cornerback, will sign a two-year deal to remain in New England with him.

“For me, I would obviously love to be back in New England. That would obviously be my first choice,” Jason said on the Sports Spectrum Podcast last month. “Obviously now playing 10 years — it’s crazy to say that — you realize there’s obviously a business side to all of that. I’m a big believer and I’m going to pray on it, and at the end of the day it’ll all work out the way it’s supposed to work out.”

The Patriots acquired Jason through a trade with Cleveland a year ago, allowing him to go from worst to first. Jason and the Browns went 0-16 in 2017, but Jason, Devin and the Patriots won the Super Bowl following the 2018 season. And Jason made a crucial play in Super Bowl LIII when he broke up a pass that looked to be a surefire touchdown to Los Angeles Rams receiver Brandin Cooks.

Jason appeared in all 16 regular-season games last season, starting 12, finishing with 68 tackles, one interception and 10 passes defended. He turns 32 in August.
