CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Browns have added veteran cornerback Jason McCourty to help shore up their secondary.
McCourty had started 90 of 108 games he appeared in over 8 years with the Tennessee Titans where he broke up 10 or more passes in 6 of those seasons. He has totaled 13 interceptions in his career.
His agent, Andy Simms, confirmed the deal and McCourty told NFL Network he is going to sign a 2-year $6 million contract that included $2 million guaranteed.
Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams coached McCourty in 2013 when Williams was a senior defensive assistant with the Titans.
The Titans cut McCourty last month after the 2 sides couldn’t agree on a restructured contract since he was originally scheduled to make $7 million in 2017.
The Browns sought secondary help after foruth-round pick Howard Wilson suffered a broken kneecap during the first rookie minicamp practice on Friday.
