McCourty buys mother new home

Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty, along with his brother Jason -- a cornerback for the Tennessee Titans -- has purchased his mother a new home.

The story is detailed by Josh Thomson of the Journal News.

"As soon as we were able to do it, she looked around and found a house she wanted," Devin McCourty tells Thomson in Sunday's editions. "I think it's any son's dream to someday move your parents and get them something better in life. I'm just fortunate enough to have an opportunity to do it."

McCourty said the purchase fulfills a childhood dream. The home is in Montvale, N.J. and plans call for the McCourty's mother, Phyllis, to move in this week.
