Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee Titans

Malcolm Butler appears to be on his way to having a substantially larger wallet.

The move reunited Butler with former New England teammate and fellow corner Logan Ryan, and the Titans general manager, Jon Robinson, is also familiar with Butler, having served as the Patriots' director of college scouting before departing for Tampa Bay. He intends to sign a four-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Deals can not be officially signed until Wednesday afternoon.

Immediately after the game, Butler tearfully told ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss that the Patriots "gave up" on him, and nearly as quickly, rumors - all false - began to crop up that Butler's benching was a punishment.

Butler, 28, has spent his entire four-year career with the Patriots after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama.

Butler was relatively unknown before his Super Bowl-clinching interception against the Seattle Seahawks back in 2015. 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. Amendola and Edelman played together for five years with the Patriots. After a slow start, he ended up playing 98 percent of New England's defensive snaps and finished the season with two interceptions.

Butler returned to the Patriots in 2017 and had a self-described up-and-down season that culminated with Belichick's shocking decision not to play him on defense in Super Bowl LII. Butler later denied any off-field misconduct, saying he never missed a curfew or did anything to hurt the Patriots' chances. That offseason, the Patriots signed corner Stephon Gilmore to a five-year, $65 million contract.

The Tennessee Titans have apparently made a decision to jump into the free agent arms race with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
