Devin McCourty, wife share emotional message after loss of newborn daughter

Devin McCourty, Patriots

There has been plenty of tragic events to occur this week and Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots experienced his own in the past week. Amid all of the chaos that is transpiring, McCourty shared an emotional message after the tragic loss of his newborn daughter.

It’s absolutely awful that McCourty and his wife had to endure having their daughter pass away before she had a chance to begin her life. At the least, it’s a positive sign to see McCourty keep a positive mindset despite experiencing a horrific incident.

Devin and Jason McCourty, who both play with the Patriots, share social media accounts. Following their post on Instagram, Devin’s wife took to Twitter to share what the family has been going through recently. In addition, they thanked the people that reached out to them during his time of distraught.

Earlier this offseason, Devin McCourty re-signed with the Patriots, inking a two-year, $23 million deal to remain with the team that drafted him in 2010. Just this past season, Devin put together a career-year, notching 58 tackles, five interceptions, and seven pass breakups. Somehow he failed to be selected to the Pro Bowl and didn’t receive All-Pro honors.

Nevertheless, Devin is dealing with something bigger than football right now and it will be quite a challenge for him and his family to overcome. It goes without saying that hopefully, Devin and his family overcome this and come out of it stronger than ever.

Regardless of what team you root for, everyone should be behind Devin and his family during these trying times.
