Could Giants bring veteran DB home to finish his career?

The New York Giants are hosting veteran defensive back Jason McCourty on a free agent visit, per a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport says McCourty, who will turn 34 before next season, and the Giants are “exploring a possible move in the future.”

That would lead to the impression that a signing of McCourty by the Giants should not be expected in the next day or two. Perhaps the two sides will wait to see what happens in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Giants signed Adoree’ Jackson to a three-year contract to be their second starting cornerback, but could still use depth in the secondary. Right now, Sam Beal, Isaac Yiadom and perhaps Julian Love appear to be the primary reserve cornerbacks.

McCourty is a Nyack, N.Y. native who played collegiately at Rutgers. He spent the last three seasons with the New England Patriots. Playing for the Giants would, in essence, be McCourty coming home to finish his career.
