Malcolm Butler reportedly will sign 5-year deal with Titans

Malcolm Butler reportedly will sign 5-year deal with Titans”

The odds of the San Francisco 49ers going after New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler reduced when they signed Richard Sherman on Saturday. Butler doesn't appear to have any chance of returning to New England and is one of the top corners available.

Butler won two Super Bowls in his four years with the Patriots but didn't play at all defensively in the Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this year, a move that mystified many Patriots fans.

Butler's Patriots tenure was a wild ride, beginning with his iconic Super Bowl XLIX interception and ending with his still-mystifying benching in Super Bowl LII.

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

Butler started every game in 2015 and 2016, earning a Pro Bowl berth in 2015, although his future with the team was uncertain after the 2016 season as he was a restricted free agent. 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. That's close to the $40 million guaranteed that Stephon Gilmore received from the Patriots a year ago.

Still, he is only 28 years old and played all 16 games in each of the last three seasons while tallying eight interceptions during that span. This past season was his most uneven since taking over for Darrelle Revis as a starter, but he still played a team-high 97.8 percent of defensive snaps and led all Patriots defenders with 12 pass breakups.

Now, Butler has finally cashed in on the open market.
