Devin McCourty Is ‘Excited’ To Play Alongside This New Teammate

Devin McCourty and his twin brother will play with new teammates in 2020, and they are more than excited about it. The New England Patriots are doing their best to pack the roster with talented players. Of course, filling the void Tom Brady left behind is impossible. But, head coach Bill Belichick has a few ideas on his mind, and Devin approves them.

Devin has shared the roster with great defensive players. New England had a lot of success thanks to these options. Belichick believes that Devin is part of that group, but the safety is actually impressed with another teammate.

According to him, the Patriots have found another excellent player in free agency.

Devin McCourty likes Adrian Phillips

New England reached an agreement with former Los Angeles Chargers safety and All-Pro special teams player Adrian Phillips. He inked a two-year deal earlier this week. Devin and his twin brother recorded the “Double Coverage” podcast on Sunday, and use the opportunity to discuss Phillips’ role on the roster.

“I look at a guy like (Phillips) when you watch him when he was on the Chargers — linebacker, strong safety, free safety. He did so many different things,” McCourty said. “Like, we don’t exactly know how he’ll fit, but he’ll bring another dimension that will be a little different for the defense. So, I’m excited about it.”

This addition turns out to be one of the best signings this offseason. New England made some really bold moves. Head coach Belichick is all-in when it comes to adding new players. He had to get so much done in a short period of time, but he did it. Belichick replaced two safeties in the past few days.

Duron Harmon was traded to the Detroit Lions and Nate Ebner inked a deal with the New York Giants.

We don’t really know how much power Phillips will add to the Patriots defense. Will he fit in the defensive line? Analysts believe that Belichick made a good move. Plus, McCourty approves the addition. His new teammate will have to learn Belichick’s rulebook and follow his instructions. New England accepted the challenge. Game on!
