Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Patriots have shown interest in trading for Titans CB Jason McCourty ahead of the upcoming deadline.
However, Rapoport adds that a trade is not expected to be completed as of now.
Rapoport reported earlier that the a number of teams including the Patriots are in the trade market for cornerback help ahead of today’s deadline, which could drive up the price, assuming that the Titans are even willing to trade McCourty.
Of course, things could change, but it would probably take quite a bit for the Patriots to acquire a solid cornerback like McCourty.
It’s worth mentioning that McCourty’s brother, Devin, plays for the Patriots.
McCourty, 28, is in the fourth year of his six-year, $44.26 million contract that included $17 million guaranteed. He’ll make base salaries of $6.8 million (2015), $7 million (2016-2017) over the remainder of the agreement.
This season, McCourty has been limited to appearing in four games and recorded 15 tackles and a pass defense for the Titans.
