Dan Duggan reports that free agent DB Jason McCourty’s visit with the Giants went well, but also ended without an agreement in place.
According to Duggan, the “door remains open to a deal in the future” between the two parties.
This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering that Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reported a few weeks ago that there was “mutual interest” between the Giants and McCourty.
McCourty has obvious ties to the Giants, considering he was in New England while Joe Judge was serving as their special teams coordinator.
McCourty, 33, is a former sixth-round pick of the Titans back in 2009. He spent eight years of his career with Tennessee and was in the final year of his six-year, $44.26 million contract when the Titans elected to release him.
The Browns quickly signed McCourty to a two-year, $6 million contract before trading him to the Patriots during the 2018 offseason in exchange for a sixth-round pick. He re-signed with New England on a two-year deal in 2019.
In 2020, McCourty appeared in all 16 games for the Patriots and recorded 41 tackles, no interceptions and three passes defended.
