The Patriots have reached an agreement with Free Safety Devin McCourty which means he’s back with the Pats and won’t test free agency on Tuesday, first reported by NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

McCourty signed a 5 year deal worth $47.5 million dollars with $28.5 million guaranteed.

McCourty made a statement about his new deal with his same ole team.

“I’m blessed to say we had other teams that were interested but I said all along that I knew in my heart that I wanted to be back in New England. But I also knew the business side of football, and I had to do what I had to do. I’m back, but I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t possibilities over the last two days that I was going to be somewhere else. I’m happy it all worked out.”

The Eagles, Jaguars, and Giants all made a hard push at the safety, but in the end he chose to stay in Boston with the team that drafted him.

Many, including myself thought he was gone, but he’s a Patriot through and through and will remain so, and I’m certainly happy we don’t have to worry about who will play Free Safety in 2015.
