ATLANTA -- Devin McCourty made news Monday night when he hinted Sunday could be his final game.

“I don’t know for sure,” McCourty said. “I do look at it if we can win this game, win it with my brother, I don’t know what else I could do that would top that. I’m just trying to make sure I enjoy this season and enjoy these last couple of days with these guys.”

His twin brother Jason had a riser on Tuesday, so naturally he was asked about the comments.

"He’s a drama guy so I am not surprised at all," he said.

McCourty added: “I haven’t talked to him about it. We’ve just been talking about gameplan and Rams.”

The 31-year-old again said he really hasn't thought about retirement, even when talking to just his wife.

“At this point no," he said. "I think throughout your career you always talk the end of it, like I set out my rookie year and I was like, ‘Man, it would be cool to hit double-digits.’ And here I am in double-digits. I think there are times when me and my wife sit around and we talk about what we want to do after football and things of that nature. I don’t think we’ve sat down and said this is a specific monetary number that we’re looking at, when we hit this we are done, or anything of that nature.

"The times we have discussed it we said we said there will be a point mentally, physically, you are just done with the game and I think at that point you’ll be at peace with it and able to walk away.”

But, McCourty was asked directly if he plans on playing next year and he wouldn't confirm.

“I am playing on Sunday," he said.

The Patriots will take on the Rams Sunday night in Super Bowl LIII.
