You may remember Patriots safety and captain Devin McCourty alluding to retirement if he was able to get his 3rd Super Bowl ring. Well he got the ring but he says he will play in his 10th season. “I’m gonna play,” McCourty said on the Sports Spectrum Podcast.
In the week leading up to Super Bowl LIII, McCourty unexpectedly declared that he was undecided on a return if the Patriots won. His logic: How can it get any better than winning a Super Bowl alongside his brother Jason?
“That was Super Bowl Media Night when Deion (Sanders) said that to me, and it was like, ‘Yeah, man, if we win the Super Bowl I don’t know what else could top that,'” McCourty said on the Sports Spectrum Podcast. “And I think in that moment I kind of forgot that I don’t play this game just to win Super Bowls. There’s so much more than comes from me playing the game that I love. I think once you get a chance to step away for a couple weeks you’re like, ‘Yeah, man, I still do want to be around these young guys that come in.'”
We can't wait to see him back in uniform this summer!
