  • Report: Browns To Sign Veteran CB Jason McCourty

According to NFL Network reporter Courtney Fallon, McCourty will sign a two-year contract worth $6 million.

Williams was "a big part" of the reason McCourty signed the two-year, $6 million contract. In talking with Sashi [Brown] and coach Hue Jackson, it was obvious. McCourty also played under Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams in 2013, so that experience is surely something that's considered valuable as other players learn a completely new defensive scheme.

"After taking my visit, it became clear what's brewing within this organization in Cleveland", McCourty said in a statement.

McCourty said he will begin his Browns career at cornerback, where he's played his entire National Football League career, while also learning other positions in the defensive backfield as a way to maximize his impact. Jamar Taylor started 14 games at right cornerback past year.

"I wanted to go somewhere where I felt I could come in and be a piece of the puzzle, whether it's helping with veteran leadership or contributing in any way I can on the field", he said. Last season, McCourty started 14 games with two interceptions, 64 tackles and a team-best 18 passes defensed. McCourty, by the way, will turn 30 years of age in October. Not much has been done this offseason to address the cornerback position, and fifth-round pick Howard Wilson suffered a fracture kneecap during rookie minicamp to further thin Cleveland's depth there. Gonzalez, a kicker from Arizona State, was picked 224th overall. Gonzalez won the 2016 Lou Groza Award, which is given annually to the nation's top kicker. He is the FBS all-time leader with 96 field goals and 494 points.
