Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee Titans

Cornerback Malcolm Butler intends to sign with the Tennessee Titans?on a five-year, $61 million deal that includes a guarantee of $30 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

An overlooked prospect in 2014 out of Division II West Alabama, he had been invited to New England for a tryout and earned a contract on the offseason 90-man roster nearly a month after the draft. Between those career landmarks, Butler started 54 of a possible 55 games and played more defensive snaps than any Patriots player.

Butler, 28, came to prominence when he made a Super Bowl-clinching interception against the Seahawks following the 2014 season, his rookie year.

He figures to slide in at the top of the Titans depth chart alongside Adoree' Jackson and his former Patriots teammate Logan Ryan. This past season was his most uneven since taking over for Darrelle Revis as a starter, but he still played a team-high 97.8 percent of defensive snaps and led all Patriots defenders with 12 pass breakups. Tennesse parted ways with head coach Mike Mularkey and hired as his replacement Mike Vrabel, who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots. That's close to the $40 million guaranteed that Stephon Gilmore received from the Patriots a year ago.

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. Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe, Cyrus Jones, Jonathan Jones, Ryan Lewis and Jomal Wiltz are now the six cornerbacks on the Patriots' roster.

The Patriots are scheduled to visit the Titans this season.
