Malcolm Butler To Sign With Titans For Five Years, $61 Million

Malcolm Butler To Sign With Titans For Five Years, $61 Million

ESPN reported last week that the New York Jets also are expected to have interest in Butler.

A contract at that level will position the New England Patriots for a possible high compensatory draft choice in 2019.

Butler is coming off a season in which he finished with two interceptions, three forced fumbles, a sack and 60 combined tackles. Additionally, Butler joins a former Patriots teammate in Tennessee's secondary, Logan Ryan, who signed with the Titans last spring.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network later tweeted the details of Butler's big-time deal with Tennessee: five years, more than $61 million, more than $30 million guaranteed.

Butler is most famous for his interception at the goal line in Super Bowl 49 to seal the victory for the Patriots over the Seahawks. Despite the Lions appearing to be in the finals of the Butler sweepstakes, the rising cornerback is signing with the Titans instead.

The 28-year-old Butler was named to the Pro Bowl in 2015. He'll play for former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel and former Pats personnel man Jon Robinson, who are now the Titans' head coach and general manager, respectively.

The news suggests Patricia, the only defensive coordinator Butler has played for in the National Football League, still thinks highly of the former undrafted free agent and Super Bowl XLIX hero despite Butler's benching in Super Bowl LII. Despite Butler's benching, he's a bona fide starter, and now he has the contract to prove it.

While there is a lot of stability on the Patriots roster from 2017 to 2018, the few big names that could depart are impact players.
