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.
