Dolphins are one of many teams interested in Patriots RB Dion Lewis

Dolphins are one of many teams interested in Patriots RB Dion Lewis”

The now interested teams are the Dolphins, Jets, Giants, Titans, Texans, Colts, 49ers, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

A few hours cornerback Malcolm Butler reportedly agreed to a contract with the Tennessee Titans, running back Dion Lewis did so, as well, according to multiple reports.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport pegs the agreement as a four-year deal that will pay him among the top 10 running backs in the game.

Meanwhile, the Giants are hosting former Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart on a free agency visit Tuesday, underscoring the organization's commitment to mine a veteran running back this offseason.

It's not a banner year for running backs and Lewis' value might be inflated because of the options on the market after Le'Veon Bell was hit with the franchise tag by the Pittsburgh Steekers. The 49ers have Matt Breida and Joe Williams under contract for 2018. Lewis played sparingly behind LeSean McCoy from 2011-2012 before being traded to the Cleveland Browns in the 2013 off-season. Lewis is by no means just a pass-down back, as he proved late last season when he carried the Patriots' offense on his back. He also added 32 receptions for 214 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns.

No NFL running back rushed for more yards over the second half of the season than Lewis did, and only Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara amassed more all-purpose yards during that span.
