Malcolm Butler to sign with Titans

Dion Lewis Colts Malcolm Butler to sign with Titans

This marks the second straight year a Patriots cornerback will leave in free agency to join the Titans.

An overlooked prospect in 2014 out of Division II West Alabama, he had been invited to New England for a tryout and earned a contract on the offseason 90-man roster nearly a month after the draft.

In 2015, Malcolm Butler was a New England hero; an undrafted free agent rookie who made the biggest play in Super Bowl history to secure a Patriots victory in Super Bowl 49.

Butler's contract will be a five-year, $61 million deal with $30 million guaranteed, a source told NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Some have wondered whether the 28-year-old's down season in 2017, capped by the now infamous Super Bowl benching, would limit his market in free agency, but there still appear to be plenty of suitors.

His tenure in New England ends on a sour note, however, as Butler was benched from the Patriots' 41-33 loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII despite playing more than 97% of New England's snaps during the regular season.

Butler spent the first four seasons of his career in New England, making the Pro Bowl once and winning two Super Bowls. Between those career landmarks, Butler started 54 of a possible 55 games and played more defensive snaps than any Patriots player. The Titans' head coach (Mike Vrabel) and general manager (Jon Robinson) also are alumni of the Patriots organization.

Butler's Patriots career ended on a odd, disappointing note as Bill Belichick benched him for all defensive snaps in Super Bowl LII.
