From Sean Leahy, USAToday.com:
New England Patriots CB Devin McCourty became just the second first-round draft pick to agree to a contract on Wednesday.
His agent, Andy Simms, announced on Twitter that McCourty had agreed to a deal and would report to the start of the Patriots’ training camp on Wednesday.
McCourty, the 27th overall pick, joins Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant as the only first-round picks to reach contract agreements.
A Rutgers product, McCourty is expected to contribute on special teams and in the Patriots’ secondary.
He was the last of the Patriots’ 12 draft picks to reach a contract agreement.
