Matt Patricia's Detroit Lions Reportedly Interested In Malcolm Butler

Butler's defection to Tennessee marks the second straight year that a Patriots cornerback will have left in free agency to join the Titans. The Titans declined to comment because free agency does not begin until Wednesday afternoon.

While there is a lot of stability on the Patriots roster from 2017 to 2018, the few big names that could depart are impact players. They committed $61 million ($30M guaranteed) over five years, a rather large investment considering Butler's benching at the Super Bowl and his up-and-down performance in 2017.

Butler, 28, started every game in 2015 and 2016, earning a Pro Bowl berth in 2015, though his future with the team was uncertain after the 2016 season, when he was a restricted free agent.

Malcolm Butler of the New England Patriots intercepts a pass by Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLIX. However, for a high profile position such as cornerback, it will be interesting to see just who that "next man up" will be in the Patriots defensive backfield.

In the wake of an inexplicable Super Bowl LII disappearance, speculation mounted that Butler might have to settle for a one-year, prove-it deal on the open market. He eventually evolved into a critical piece of New England's secondary, but Bill Belichick surprisingly benched him (apart from special teams) for their defeat this past February to the Philadelphia Eagles. The New Orleans Saints hosted Butler on a visit but never signed him to an offer sheet.

Tennesse parted ways with head coach Mike Mularkey and hired as his replacement Mike Vrabel, who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots.
