According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Patriots and safety Devin McCourty aren’t close to getting a contract extension done.
Devin McCourty‘s move to safety still looks seamless, and it has solved what was a lingering issue for the Patriots. No doubt, they’ll want him around a long time, as he enters the final year of his deal. The sides exchanged some initial proposals this offseason, sources said, but weren’t particularly close, and there hasn’t been any movement since. The looming financial reality here is that the safety franchise tag is quite team friendly, so that could put a chill on a drive to get something done, though I’d expect the sides to maybe chat it up once more before the start of the season just in case.
McCourty is in the final year of his current contract.
