Though Jason McCourty never became an All-Pro or Pro Bowl defensive back throughout his 13-season NFL career, he received the game’s greatest achievement by winning Super Bowl LIII with the New England Patriots.
That year, he teamed up with his twin brother Devin, who is a three-time All-Pro and a two-time Pro Bowler.
However, Jason has done something that Devin hasn’t: play two positions in the league.
After playing cornerback during his first 11 seasons, Jason switched to free safety during his lone season with the Miami Dolphins.
Therefore, he has a keen perspective on both positions before retiring from the game.
It’s that vast knowledge and experience that makes him an asset to the NFL Network.

What Makes Jason McCourty A Great Addition?
Aside from his football IQ, he has experienced highs and lows throughout his NFL career.
He said, “I’ve had the pleasure to experience it all in the NFL, from being drafted at the end of the sixth round to being cut, then traded, and finally retiring. I’ve endured seasons of 0-16 to hoisting a Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LIII.”
Those experiences will help him provide clear explanations for the league’s latest news and issues.
