Shortly after announcing his retirement from the NFL on Friday, it was reported that former Tennessee Titans defensive back Jason McCourty is a favorite to land a job on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football.”

The news comes from Andrew Marchand and Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post, who note McCourty would be taking the role once held by Nate Burleson, who moved on to “CBS This Morning” last August.

Along with Burleson’s departure, the show has also lost host Kay Adams, who is being replaced by former CBS sideline reporter, Jamie Erdahl. Two of the originals on the show, Kyle Brandt and Peter Schrager, remain.

A former 2009 sixth-round pick of the Titans, McCourty became one of the better defensive backs in the NFL during his 13-year career, exceeding all expectations for a late-round selection.

After eight seasons in Nashville and one year in Cleveland, McCourty, who was always a class act, made a home for himself in New England over three seasons there, winning one Super Bowl in 2018. He closed out his career with the Miami Dolphins in 2021.
