Different people in our building from our football operations to the people in our dining room to the people in our equipment room, trainers, there’s been so many people that have gone above and beyond to kind of make this season happen,” McCourty said. One example McCourty pointed out was with the food.
Brian has played a lot of football for a lot of different people,” McDaniels said during an online press conference, “Stid’s played in college football and played a preseason for us and not much else and Cam’s had a longer career and he’s been very successful.

I don’t think either one of us ever thought about actually opting out,” McCourty said.
