Malcolm Butler agrees to deal with Titans, agent says

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

Meanwhile, according to Pro Football Weekly, the Texans are "in on" Butler after quietly expressing interest last offseason when he was a restricted free agent.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Cornerback Malcolm Butler's agent says Butler and the Tennessee Titans have agreed to a five-year deal worth more than $60 million.

That tension apparently reached it's breaking point in the Patriots' Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Signed as an afterthought undrafted free agent, Butler stole the Super Bowl XLIX spotlight after saving the victory with an end-zone interception as a last-second substitution.

That is a nice haul for Lewis, and it falls into a similar category as Danny Amendola's reported two-year agreement with the Dolphins: While the New England Patriots would have liked to have Lewis back, they had a certain role in mind - and a financial figure to go with it - and the Titans trumped it. Butler didn't play a single defensive snap in the 41-33 defeat.

New head coach Mike Vrabel also has New England roots, and he knows he needs more from a defense that ranked 25th in passing yards allowed and 22nd in interception percentage. The New Orleans Saints hosted Butler on a visit but never signed him to an offer sheet.

His deal is reportedly guaranteed for $11.5 million. He also had 32 receptions for 214 yards and three touchdowns.

Butler started the Patriots' first two playoff games before he was mysteriously benched for the Super Bowl. After the game, in an emotional moment, Butler said the Patriots gave up on him.

Nonetheless, the Titans know plenty about Butler - with general manager Jon Robinson having come from the Patriots organization.
