"The Hoodie" might just have another sick trick up his sleeve.
Defensive back Jason McCourty has made the New England Patriots' 53 man roster to start the season, and it looks like head coach Bill Belichick is moving him over to safety, having worked the second twin into the role over the past few days.

The potential for this move lies in his genetics. Jason's brother, Devin, was originally a cornerback as well. In 2012, Belichick moved Devin to free safety, where he has been one of the league's most productive players ever since at his position.
Since the switch, Devin has twice been a second-team All-Pro (2013 and 2016) and was a Pro Bowl selection in 2016. Devin has been one of the most reliable members of the Patriots defense for a number of years at this point, so putting Jason there is definitely worth a shot.

Jason is a 10-year veteran in the NFL, playing with the Tennessee Titans for eight years and making a pit stop in Cleveland with the Browns before signing with the Pats.
