Titans nab Butler with 5-year, $61 million deal

Malcolm Butler of the New England Patriots intercepts a pass by Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLIX Titans nab Butler with 5-year, $61 million deal

Lewis, along with former Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon are considered among the top players at the position expected to be available when the new league year and free agency begins on Wednesday at 4p.m.

The four-year deal has a maximum amount of $23 million, and it also includes $11.5 million in guaranteed money.

The Titans signed Butler's former teammate, cornerback Logan Ryan, last season and needed help in the secondary to go along with cornerback Adoree Jackson, who started 16 games after being drafted 18th overall. He was given a first-round tender from the team worth $3.9 million and was rumored to be in trade conversations between the Patriots and New Orleans Saints.

Malcolm Butler is about to become a rich man in new surroundings around familiar faces.

The two-time Super Bowl champion cornerback will officially sign with the Tennessee Titans today, according to a source. He's also been an important asset as a receiver, making 85 receptions the past three seasons (30 games) while catching almost 92 percent of his targets from Tom Brady last fall. The Patriots lost the Super Bowl to the Eagles, unable to stop Nick Foles without Butler out there. In 14 games the previous two seasons, Lewis caught 53 passes for 482 yards and two touchdowns.

The hero of Super Bowl XLIX with a game-saving interception, Butler spent in New England four memorable years that included notable highs and lows.

He played just seven games during his return in 2016, but he had a career season in 2017, leading New England with 896 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns.

Look for the Titans to add another running back to complement Derrick Henry after releasing DeMarco Murray.
