Two-time Pro Bowl safety Devin McCourty has re-signed with the New England Patriots, he announced in a YouTube video with his brother and fellow Patriot, Jason, ending his potential homecoming to the New York area in the process.
Although he didn't get into any of the details, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Patriots are bringing McCourty back on a two-year, $23 million deal, with $17 million guaranteed.
McCourty, who went to high school and college in north New Jersey, came up in some mock free agency pickups for the Giants during the offseason.
In fact, McCourty spoke during Super Bowl LIV media day about the possibility of joining the Giants and their new head coach Joe Judge -- the two spent the last seven seasons together in New England.
"I'm always open to talk to anybody," McCourty told The Post. "That's how I view it.
"I like Joe," McCourty said. "I think he is well prepared and passionate, so he has a chance to be a really good head coach."
McCourty was tied for fourth in the NFL last season with five interceptions for the league's best defense.
For his career, McCourty holds numbers of 26 interceptions, 86 pass breakups, 11 forced fumbles and 772 tackles.
