His 17 pass deflections and seven interceptions marked career-highs.[33] McCourty was named a First-team All-Pro by The Sporting News and Second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press.[34]

The New England Patriots finished first in the AFC East with a 14–2 record and clinched home-field advantage and a first round bye.[35][36] On January 16, 2011, McCourty started in his first career playoff game and collected three solo tackles in their 28–21 loss to the Jets in the AFC Divisional Round.[37]

2011

McCourty entered training camp slated as the Patriots' No. 1 starting cornerback.[38] Head coach Bill Belichick officially named McCourty the starter, alongside Leigh Bodden, to start the regular season.[39] On September 8, 2011, it was reported that McCourty was selected by teammates to be one of the six team captains. McCourty, Jerod Mayo, and Vince Wilfork were chosen to be defensive captains for the season.[40]

McCourty started in the Patriots' season-opener at the Miami Dolphins and collected a season-high 11 combined tackles (ten solo) and two pass deflections in their 38–24 victory.[41] On November 13, 2011, he made four solo tackles during 37–16 victory at the Jets,[42] but exited in the second quarter after injuring his shoulder during a collision with teammate Sterling Moore. His shoulder injury sidelined him for the next two games (Weeks 11–12).[43] In Week 16, McCourty collected nine combined tackles, a season-high five pass deflections, and made an interception during a 27–24 victory.[44] He finished the 2011 season with 87 combined tackles (65 solo), 13 pass deflections, and two interceptions in 14 games and 14 starts.[45]

Personal life

McCourty was raised in Nyack, New York, by his parents Phyllis and Calvin McCourty. His father died in 1990 at age 34 due to a heart attack related to complications from asthma. Devin has a twin brother, Jason, and an older brother named Larry White. He was born 27 minutes before Jason, each weighing six pounds and 13 ounces. During junior high school, the family moved into a mobile home in Nanuet, New York.[139] In 2010, his mother retired from her career as a nurse at Rockland Psychiatric Hospital in Orangeburg, New York.[140]

His twin brother Jason also played cornerback for Rutgers. Jason was drafted in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans and previously played for the Cleveland Browns.[141] On March 15, 2018, the Cleveland Browns traded Jason to the New England Patriots along with a 2018 seventh-round pick for New England's 2018 sixth-round pick.[142] Devin and Jason are one of only 13 sets of twins in NFL history and are one of five active sets of twins to currently play as of 2016, along with Shaquill Griffin/Shaquem Griffin, Brandon Dixon/Brian Dixon, Maurkice Pouncey/Mike Pouncey, and previous teammates Jacob Hollister/Cody Hollister.[143] They were the first set to play in a Super Bowl together in helping the Patriots win Super Bowl LIII.[144]

Devin and Jason jointly delivered the 2019 commencement address at Rutgers; they also received honorary doctorates from their alma mater.[145] They share a Twitter account and co-host a podcast, Double Coverage with the McCourty Twins.[146] Devin also serves on the board of Boston Medical Center.[147]

In 2016, he married his girlfriend Michelle Powell.[148] On March 11, 2017, the couple had a baby girl named Londyn and on April 29, 2018, they had a baby boy named Brayden.[149][150][151]

Philanthropy

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, McCourty made a pledge to aid recovery efforts with a donation of $100 for every tackle he made during the 2013 season, and $200 per interception.[152] The pledge follows a similar offer by former Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola ($100 per reception, $200 per dropped pass).

In January 2018, McCourty, along with the punk band the Dropkick Murphys, joined in a raffle raising money for the Dropkick Murphys' The Claddagh Fund and McCourty's Embrace the Kids Foundation. The grand prize included a trip and tickets to Super Bowl LII in which McCourty's Patriots played.[153]
