Malcolm Butler is off the market after choosing Titans over Lions

  • Report 49ers among 7 teams interested in Patriots RB Dion Lewis

The soon-to-be free-agent cornerback intends to sign with the Tennessee Titans when contracts can become official on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport says the Titans are signing Butler on a 5-year contract worth more than $61 million with more than $30 million guaranteed.

Butler and Lewis will play for former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel and former Pats personnel man Jon Robinson, who are now the Titans' head coach and general manager, respectively. He still managed to start Tennessee's first 15 games, but a knee injury kept Murray from playing in the Titans' regular-season finale and the postseason.

Butler had two interceptions in 2017.

Butler went from Super Bowl hero in the XLIX victory to goat - of sorts - in the LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.


The person said the deal for the former Patriots starter carries a maximum value of $23.4 million. Ryan wrote on Twitter earlier Tuesday that he was working the phones recruiting free agents to Tennessee.

This battle, which reportedly included the Saints, all took place after Butler sat out his final game in New England for an unspecified reason.

Butler would be a boost to a Lions' passing defense that ranked 27th in the league in 2017, giving up 243.25 yards through the air on average per game.

After winning the Heisman Trophy and setting SEC single-season records for rushing yards and touchdowns for Alabama's CFP national-championship team in 2015, Henry joined Tennessee in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He also had three receiving scores and was the Patriots' best kickoff returner, posting a 103-yard return for a touchdown against Denver.
