Earlier this week, the Patriots picked up cornerback Jason McCourty's option. On Sunday, Jason and Devin McCourty teamed up to announce on the YouTube channel for their "Double Coverage" podcast the veteran safety has re-signed with New England.
"Breaking news: I will be back also for season three of 'Double Coverage.' I will be staying in New England to play alongside this guy. Sign me up," Devin McCourty said.
McCourty's new contract is for two years, $23 million according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

This all but confirms the three-time Super Bowl champion will finish his career as a New England Patriot.
The Patriots still have a lot on their plate this offseason -- including that whole Tom Brady situation -- but they've been active over the last few days. On Thursday, they signed veteran special teamer Matthew Slater to a two-year extension.
McCourty, 32, tallied five interceptions during the 2019 season to go along with two forced fumbles.
