Devin McCourty, who plays for the New England Patriots, is widely regarded as one of the league’s top defensive backs. In point of fact, McCourty is currently ranked third overall among the best safeties in the NFL, according to a recent poll.

In addition to being selected for the Pro Bowl in both the cornerback and safety positions, McCourty appears to be well on his way to having another solid season at the back end of New England’s defense.

Durability is one of the many admirable qualities that McCourty possesses. During the previous season, he participated in all 16 games and finished with 60 tackles, 10 pass breakups, and three interceptions. After 12 seasons with the Patriots, he has now collected a total of 31 interceptions for the team.

Deep coverage is one of McCourty’s strengths, and it looks  2021 was the year he had his finest overall season. He let the opposing quarterback have a passing rating of 31.8 despite allowing 12 receptions out of 24 targets for 159 yards, 63 yards after the catch, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions.

The 34-year-old, three-time Super Bowl winner re-signed with the Patriots for another year at a salary of $9 million.

In 2010, the Patriots selected McCourty with the first overall pick in the draft. Since that time, he has been selected to serve as a team captain in 11 of the last 12 seasons.
