Rutgers' McCourty agrees to terms with Pats

The New England Patriots and first-round draft pick Devin McCourty have agreed to terms of a contract.

McCourty's  agent,  Andy Simms, posted the  news on his Twitter feed Wednesday morning.

McCourty  becomes  just the second  of this  year's first-round draft picks to reach a contract agreement, joining Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant.

McCourty, the  27th overall pick in April's draft, was a First-Team All-Big East choice in 2009, finishing second on the Rutgers  defense  with 80  tackles to go  along with 10  pass breakups and one interception.  He had six picks during his career and also blocked seven kicks while adding a kickoff return for a touchdown on special teams.
