It may not be just Rob Gronkowski departing the New England Patriots after this season; fan-favorite safety Devin McCourty is reportedly considering retirement as well.
The Rutgers alum told reporters that it would be hard to beat winning a Super Bowl with his twin brother Jason last night at Super Bowl media day in Atlanta. The McCourty brothers have played together in every league from high school to the NFL.
“I don’t know for sure,” McCourty said to reporters. “I do look at it if we can win this game, win it with my brother, I don’t know what else I could do that would top that. I’m just trying to make sure I enjoy this season and enjoy these last couple of days with these guys.”
On the flip side, Jason told reporters that the experience has been one to remember for him, to be able to share this with his brother after being on the sideline cheering for the previous Super Bowls.
“It’s surreal,” Jason said. “I’ve told some of the guys, I always kind of felt like I was on the outside looking in. To finally be here after all these years, it’s a blessing.”
The McCourty twins will take the field together for the Super Bowl on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. in what could be Devin’s last NFL game.
