Jason McCourty, who played the last three seasons for the Patriots, is reportedly set to sign with the Dolphins, according to NFL Media.

Along with twin brother — and New England defensive back — Devin McCourty, the veteran carved out a niche as a consistent and steady performer on the field, and was one of the most well-respected players in the Patriots’ locker room.

He started 33 regular-season games and had a pair of interceptions with the Patriots. Part of the defense that helped shut down the high-powered Rams’ offense in Super Bowl LIII, he had a pass breakup on a ball for Brandin Cooks that was one of the most important plays of the game.

In Miami, McCourty, 33, will be reunited with former New England defensive signal-caller Brian Flores, who is now the coach of the Dolphins.
