Former Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty will join the “Football Night in America” ​​broadcast team as an analyst this fall, according to an announcement from NBC Sports on Tuesday.

McCourty, 35, retired from his playing career in March after spending all 13 NFL seasons with the Patriots. During that time, he helped New England win three Super Bowls and earned All Pro honors three times.

He will follow the path his twin brother Jason forged when he entered the media in 2022 (joining NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” as a co-host).

This won’t be Devin’s first foray into the media. Along with Jason, the two brothers hosted a podcast, “Double Coverage,” which ran from 2018 to 2020 (during the time the two played for the Patriots).

According to NBC, “Football Night in America” — which takes place on Sunday nights during the NFL season — has been the most-watched weekly sports studio for 17 straight years. The program averaged 7.24 million viewers during its pre-match broadcast ahead of Sunday Night Football.
