Biography

PRO: Jason McCourty is a fast, athletic cornerback and one of the veteran leaders of the defense.  The Titans rewarded the 6-foot, 193-pounder with a long-term contract extension during the 2012 preseason.  Originally a sixth-round draft choice in 2009, the former Rutgers standout was selected a defensive captain by his teammates for the 2012 campaign and tied for the team lead with four interceptions.  He was voted as a captain again in 2013.  From the time he became a full-time starter in 2011 through 2013, McCourty led the Titans in passes defensed (46) and ranked third in interceptions (six).

•    In 2012, McCourty started all 16 games for the first time in his career and led the squad with a career-high 17 passes defensed, while finishing tied for third on the club with 93 tackles.  He also posted a career-best four interceptions.
