Jason McCourty: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
McCourty will continue to hold down the starting job at left cornerback for Tennessee this season, on the heels of a 2013 campaign in which he saw his tackle total dip to 65 tackles, after recording 92 in 2012 (to go along with four picks).
It isn't clear why Tennessee cornerbacks post such high tackle totals, but they do. Cortland Finnegan did before he left for St. Louis, Alterraun Verner did, and now McCourty does. Although he fell short of the triple-digit tackle mark last year, McCourty piled up 104 stops in 2011, and in both seasons he's been very active in coverage, defending 28 passes over the last two years. He also has six interceptions over that span. With the same role awaiting him in 2013, McCourty should have similar numbers in store this year.
McCourty has very good odds of reaching 100 tackles 2012, something he did in 2011 despite missing one game. In his first season as a starter for the Titans he finished with 103 tackles (83 solo), one sack, 13 passes defended and two interceptions. Generally considered a better player than Alterraun Verner, it's possible McCourty sees fewer pass attempts from opposing quarterbacks; if so, expect lower tackle totals than Verner.
McCourty started three of the final four games in 2010 after coming back from injury in his second season. He is expected to be the starting cornerback across from Cortland Finnegan and could put up some decent pass defending numbers.
McCourty has jumped out to become the number one option as the starting right-side cornerback to replace Nick Harper. It has become a four-man battle for the position so he will need to continue to play well during the 2010 offseason. If he does gain the starting cornerback spot for 2010, you can expect him to have opportunity to put up decent defensive numbers but do not expect All Pro numbers.
