McCourty battled a groin injury in 2019 and missed five games, including the Patriots' AFC Wild Card game loss to the Tennessee Titans that ended their season. He played only eight defensive snaps after New England's Week 11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 32-year-old defensive back tallied 40 tackles with one interception and six passes defensed in his second season with the Patriots.

McCourty has one more year left on his Patriots contract.
