Butler Agrees to deal with Titans

Butler Agrees to deal with Titans

Butler will join new head Mike Vrabel, general manager Jon Robinson and cornerback Logan Ryan, all of whom spent time in New England.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Titans will sign Butler to a five-year deal worth $61 million, with $30 million guaranteed.

ESPN reported last week that the New York Jets also are expected to have interest in Butler.

Ryan certainly has a lot of reason to celebrate now that his friend is coming to the AFC South. The 28-year-old defensive back should have no problem taking over as the Titans' new number-one corner.

Butler is most famous for his interception at the goal line in Super Bowl XLIX, which sealed victory for the Patriots over the Seattle Seahawks.

Although Butler's play was down in 2017, he still led the Patriots in defensive snaps.

Meanwhile, Union Home minister Rajnath Singh condemned the attack and described the incident as "deeply distressing". Maoist rebels killed twelve paramilitary commandos in Chhattisgarh's Sukma after ambushing their convoy.

At that point, no one knew if Butler would remain a flash-in-the-pan Super Bowl hero or make something of himself.

Rowe struggled mightily against the Eagles, as did the other defensive backs the Patriots used.

But even Bill Belichick shot that down, keeping the question open as to why he'd kept a player who nearly certainly could have helped the defense on the sidelines.

In four seasons with the Patriots, Butler totaled eight interceptions, 50 passes defended (including 12 or more in his last three years) and 209 combined tackles. That decision by Bill Belichick, which the coach said was a result of him putting the players and game plan on the field that he believed gave the Patriots the best chance to win, remains a hot-button topic among part of the team's fan base because it was unconventional.

It wasn't long ago that Butler was working at a Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen in Vicksburg, Miss., making $7.25 an hour frying chicken.
