Why do I say this?
He is already considered to be a top tier safety in the league (debatable), and has had to play his entire career around, well to put it kindly, crap. Gregory, Chung, Arrington (on the outside), Meriweather, Butler, Sterling Moore, Cole to name some.
Now, the defensive backfield is loaded with talent. Revis, Browner, Dennard (in the slot where he will excel), Ryan, Arrington.
Before this McCourty had to cover overtop of average CBs and couldnt free lance and make plays on the ball.
Now, Revis shuts down half of the field. Browner when on a good matchup can shut down his side. Dennard can hold his own in the slot. That leaves a lot less responsibility for DMC and now he can go out and take more risks imo and we could see a lot more impact plays from him and he will get the national attention he deserves.
Big season for him IMO.
