The Cleveland Browns are expected to land veteran cornerback Jason McCourty, who was recently a cap casualty of the Tennessee Titans.

ESPN’s Adam Caplan said it’s expected to be a two-year contract for McCourty.
As a member of the Titans, McCourty was a mainstay for eight years. He started 14 games last year, intercepting two passes to bring his career total up to 13.
Cleveland’s defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, has some history with McCourty during their time together in Tennessee. He should slide right into the starting lineup for Williams’ defense and provide excellent leadership on an up-and-coming defense.
