A key member of the New England Patriots will be back with the team for the foreseeable future.
Safety Devin McCourty has signed a five-year, $47.5 million contract with the team -- and, more than $28 million of that is guaranteed.
McCourty will not test the free agent market.
The 27-year-old was drafted by the Pats in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, and has been a team captain each of the last four seasons.
He played college football for Rutgers University.
Meanwhile, New England fans are still anxious to see whether Darrelle Revis will re-sign with the Patriots.
