The McCourty twins will not be separated any time soon.

Jason signed with the Patriots reuniting with his brother Devin for the first time since their college days at Rutgers.
Jason, 31, went from the winless 2017 Cleveland Browns to a Super Bowl champion the next year with the Patriots as the starting cornerback opposite Stephon Gilmore.
He recorded 70 tackles and one interception in his first season in New England.
In addition, the Patriots also re-signed Brandon Bolden after one season with the Miami Dolphins and linebacker John Simon.
ESPN NFL Nation reporter Mike Reiss who is close to the team, was very supportive of the move, proclaiming a great on and off field move.
With Patriots agreeing to terms on a 2-year deal with RB Brandon Bolden, as first reported by @RapSheet, it is a move that will be well-received in locker room and from culture standpoint.

Bolden, 29, was undrafted out of Ole Miss winning two Super Bowl championships with the Patriots as primarily a special teams ace for the team.
Simon, 28, was picked up midseason after being released by the Indianapolis Colts and was an immediate fit for the Patriots playing in 11 games, starting two, and recording two sacks.
