The former Miami Dolphins cornerback Jason McCourty has revealed that he is retiring from the NFL at the age of 35. Having spent three seasons in New England with his twin brother, Devin, he played his last season in the NFL in Miami.
When McCourty revealed that he was retiring, he posted a video on Instagram. The video contains narration from his children who wrote about their father’s journey from an inexperienced childhood player who almost gave up football to one of the game’s finest defensive backs.
“These past 13 seasons have been one hell of a journey. As I reflect and look back on my career, I have far surpassed any and all expectations that I set for myself back in 2009. And that’s what I’m most proud of when I look back on my career”, he says in the video.
Has Jason McCourty ever won the Super Bowl?
McCourty was drafted 203rd overall by the Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft and spent his first eight seasons with the team until signing with the Cleveland Browns for the 2017 season. There, the free safety went on to win a Super Bowl after being moved from the Browns to the Patriots.
He played another three seasons with the Patriots before joining the Miami Dolphins in 2021. To date, McCourty has played in 141 of his 173 regular-season games as a starter, including five seasons as captain.
