Ex-Pat Butler to join Titans for $61M


Butler is coming off a season in which he finished with two interceptions, three forced fumbles, a sack and 60 combined tackles.

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.

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.

Third-year player Joshua Garnett missed all of last season with a knee injury and is an uncertain fit in Kyle Shanahan's offense. According to Pro Football Focus, he was the only lineman not to allow a sack or quarterback hit in 2017.

After a few hours of Tennessee Titans fans beginning to lose their collective minds and doubting the front office, GM Jon Robinson made his first move of the offseason.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Butler will be signing with the Titans and will be getting a five-year deal worth more than $61 million with more than $30 million guaranteed. He was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and has eight interceptions through four seasons in the league.

But just over a month ago, Butler rode the bench as the Patriots ultimately fell in Super Bowl LII, a healthy scratch that has yet to be explained in detail.

Sources added that even the High Commissioner's auto was intercepted in the middle of the read and was prevented from attending an official event.

In order to secure Butler, the Titans had to splash some money. After the game, in an emotional moment, Butler said the Patriots gave up on him.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Butler turned 28 on March 2. The presence of former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel as a first-year head coach, coupled with former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan in the defensive backfield, is one of the best things that could have happened to Butler.

This marks the second straight year that a Patriots cornerback will leave in free agency to join the Titans.
