Tennessee Titans to sign former New England Patriots CB Malcolm Butler

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews is tackled by Oakland Raiders middle linebacker Na Vorro Bowman during the first half of the NFL game in Orchard Park New York Sunday Oct. 2

Other teams, such as the Detroit Lions, also were hot on Butler's trail in free agency. His strong 2017 season - in which he didn't elevate to the lead role at running back until Week 7 - put him in position to earn it.

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.

Butler was relatively unknown before his Super Bowl-clinching interception against the Seattle Seahawks back in 2015.

Butler was released by the Patriots after a season in which he tallied 55 tackles, two interceptions and 12 passes defensed.

Both of the airlines have been asked to not use these same engines in their planes, even if they have them on spare. Flights to and from Delhi were among the worst hit, information available on Indigo's website on Tuesday showed.

New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis won't be headed to the San Francisco 49ers in free agency. Butler played out the season on his restricted tender of $3.9 million. Butler is not coming off a career year, but he's played well in recent seasons despite often following top opposing receivers.

A player with his resume will certainly have suitors, and thus far, at least three teams have been reported to have their eyes on the 28-year-old. When the Patriots loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Butler was stationed on the sideline, never seeing a snap.

His deal is reportedly guaranteed for $11.5 million. He finished with nine total touchdowns and 1,110 yards from scrimmage. After the game, in an emotional moment, Butler said the Patriots gave up on him.

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.
