Devin McCourty might retire if Patriots beat Rams
New England Patriots safety Devin McCourty has indicated he could retire if they defeat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.
McCourty, 31, has been with the Patriots for nine seasons. His twin and team-mate, Jason McCourty, was acquired in a trade with the Cleveland Browns last offseason.
Jason is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason, while Devin has one year left on his contract with New England, though he may not see that out.
"I don't know for sure, man. But I do look at it — if we can win this game, winning with my brother [Jason], I don't know what else I could do that could top that," McCourty told NFL Network.
"So I'm just trying to make sure I enjoy this season and enjoy these last couple days with these guys."
The McCourty twins' mother, Phyllis Harrell, shared their dream of them playing together, and she told ESPN: "I'm so grateful because I get to see them live out their dream.
"I didn't tell my sons this, but I did tell their wives: If they win the Super Bowl together, I'm going to grab some of the confetti and lay out on the field and do an angel."
