Titans to Sign Former Patriots CB Malcolm Butler

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews is tackled by Oakland Raiders middle linebacker Na Vorro Bowman during the first half of the NFL game in Orchard Park New York Sunday Oct. 2

He started 15 of 16 games in New England, but did not play a single down in the team's Super Bowl loss to the Eagles.

Butler was relatively unknown before his Super Bowl-clinching interception against the Seattle Seahawks back in 2015.

The New Orleans Saints pursued Butler as a restricted free agent a year ago, but the trade price was too high.

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

By signing with the Titans, Butler reunites with Logan Ryan.

The Titans ranked 13th in total defense and improved slightly against the pass, giving up 239.3 yards through the air to move from 30th in 2016 to 25th overall. He added 32 catches for 214 yards and three receiving touchdowns, while also serving as the team's primary kickoff returner (23 returns, 570 yards, one touchdown).

In Tennessee, Lewis figures to share duties with Derrick Henry, the 240-pound former Heisman Trophy victor.

The Titans apparently had a plan when they released veteran running back DeMarco Murray last Thursday. He was benched for the Super Bowl in February.

He has eight interceptions and four forced fumbles in 59 career regular-season games (48 starts) since making the Patriots as an undrafted free agent from West Alabama in 2014. Butler later denied any off-field misconduct, saying he never missed a curfew or do anything to hurt the Patriots' chances. Butler spent the past four seasons with the New England Patriots. Teammates nicknamed him "Strap" because of his ability to closely cover receivers and also "Scrap" for his scrappy style of play.
