Patriots safety Devin McCourty and twin brother Jason McCourty, who plays cornerback for the Titans, spent some time on ESPN's campus in Bristol, Conn. on Thursday, appearing on both First Take and NFL Insiders.

We wrote yesterday about what Devin had to say after an offseason dominated by Deflategate talk, but here are a few other noteworthy nuggets from his on-air discussions:

On who he sees as the best receiver in the NFL: "I think this is one of the hardest positions to even evaluate. Because first of all, you look at the receiver position and the first thing you want to do is put these freak athletes like Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant [at the top]," McCourty said on First Take. "But I started my list with Antonio Brown. We talk about all these guys that are big and talented and fast -- they can do everything. But this little guy led all receivers last year. He did everything, while still punt returning. You can look at everything that a guy brings to the table, but don't disregard production and I thought he was the No. 1 productive receiver last year so I put him there."

The Patriots and Steelers will square off Week 1 in Foxboro so McCourty will have plenty of time to find ways to help slow Brown, who led the league in catches (129) and yards (1,698) last season. McCourty rounded out his top-five receiver list with Detroit's Calvin Johnson (No. 2), Dallas' Dez Bryant (No. 3), Denver's Demariyus Thomas (No. 4) and Atlanta's Julio Jones (No. 5).
