According to Dianna Marie Russini of NBC in D.C, both the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are interested in making a push for soon-to-be free agent Devin McCourty.
Sources in Philadelphia tell me Devin McCourtey is high on the Eagles free agent board and will pursue him. As will the New York Giants.

Who knows if they'll actually pursue him, but both teams definitely have a need there as they ranked in the bottom half in passing yards allowed this year. The Giants came in at 18th, the Eagles at 31st, so there's definitely a need there. The Eagles have more flexibility as far as the cap goes, with $40 million in cap room right now, so they have a lot of flexibility to bring in new blood. The Giants have about $12 million right now, so they have some room, but they wouldn't be able to bring on many more players after McCourty should they go that route.
