McCourty (shoulder/chest) officially signed a two-year contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported earlier Tuesday that the two sides were nearing an agreement, but it's now become official and McCourty is set to join the Browns. He'll immediately join the team as a playmaker at corner and could start opposite Joe Haden right out of the gates. According to Tony Grossi of ESPN.com, the Browns could give him some work at free safety as well, so don't be surprised if the team experiments with him at a few different positions during training camp.

McCourty (shoulder/chest) is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Browns, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty has spent his entire eight-year career with the Titans, but was waived in April following 2016 campaign where he recorded 69 tackles, 12 passes defensed and two interceptions across 14 games. He should immediately address a need for the Browns once signed after the team recently lost fourth-round draft pick Howard Wilson to a broken kneecap during rookie minicamp. Look for a deal to be finalized over the next few days, barring any last second snags in contract talks.

McCourty (chest) was released by the Titans on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty's release comes after he spent the first nine seasons of his NFL career with Tennessee. The 29-year old cornerback had 69 tackles and 12 passes defensed, including two interceptions, in 14 games played last season. His release leaves the Titans with Leshaun Sims and Logan Ryan as the team's starting corners, though they could add a rookie early on in the draft. McCourty is now a free agent and likely won't struggle finding a new club to sign with.

McCourty is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty's loss will be a tough one for a Tennessee secondary that surrendered 325 passing yards to Blake Bortles in his absence Week 16. With their top cover corner on the shelf, look for Valentino Blake to see an expanded role Sunday afternoon.

McCourty sprained his shoulder and suffered a chest contusion in Sunday's win over Kansas City, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty was forced to exit Sunday's game due to the injuries. While they can take weeks to completely heal they aren't injuries that will prevent him from playing for an extended period of time and he should at this time be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
