Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee Titans

Multiple teams reported to have interest in Malcolm Butler

After a slow start, he ended up playing 98 percent of New England's defensive snaps and finished the season with two interceptions.

Malcolm Butler is about to become a rich man in new surroundings around familiar faces. However, in signing Butler to a five-year deal that includes $30 million guaranteed, the Titans are betting on Butler to return to the form that he's shown in seasons past.

Free Agency is nearly upon us, but Titans general manager Jon Robinson didn't want to wait to make his first big signing of the offseason. "Even when you're not ready to move on, you've got to move on, so I just kept moving on, just tried to keep my confidence up and rebuild everything from the ground up".

Malcolm Butler won't be following former New England coordinator Matt Patricia to Detroit, but he is staying in the Patriots' extended family. Butler played alongside Ryan and signed under Robinson, formerly Bill Belichick's director of college scouting.

"I am going to being everything I've got", Butler said. He was the hero of New England's Super Bowl win after the 2014 season, intercepting a pass to seal the 28-24 victory over Seattle.

Butler's situation has remained one of the top Patriots-related stories since the Super Bowl loss.




"I wouldn't say (they're trying to replicate New England here)", Lewis said Thursday. "They're going to feel that pain when they see the success I have". They probably thought I was kind of late on the game plan; I wasn't as locked in as I should be and could have been a matchup deal.

Another player, starting center David Andrews, signed an extension through 2020 and had said, "I'm so grateful to be on a team like this where winning is the only thing that matters". It was his first career interception, and he said it changed his life.

Lewis, the newest member of the Tennessee Titans, was uncharacteristically emotional during his introductory press conference.

"It means a lot", Butler said to Howe. Other teams, such as the Detroit Lions, also were hot on Butler's trail in free agency. "I'm just honored. really, really blessed". Belichick & Co. don't always make the right ones - they had some real head-scratchers in 2017 - but the overall 18-year track record is darn good. For the most part, they really had love for me. But of course maybe he did follow up and Butler skirted around the question.

With three solid cornerbacks, there are little ways the Texans can move Fuller and Hopkins around to try to get a mismatch.

Butler will certainly feel at home in Tennessee, which is quickly becoming "New England South".
