According to Raanan, both McCourty and Moore are expected to draw “serious interest” from a “multitude” of teams, which is likely to result in some pretty high salaries for both players.
As of now, expectation is that McCourty could get $9-10 million per year while Moore may walk away with something in the $5-8 million range.
Raanan mentions that the Eagles are expected to be among the long list of suitors for McCourty, while Moore should get interest from the Raiders, Jets, Bears and Texans.
McCourty, 27, played out his five-year, $10 million contract that includes $7.825 million guaranteed and will be an unrestricted free agent as of next week.
This season, McCourty appeared in 16 games for the Patriots and totaled 68 tackles, two interceptions, and one forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has McCourty ranked as the No. 8 safety in the league this season.
