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. He played the entire 2017 season on a $3.91 million contract and joins a group of young and talented defensive backs in Tennessee.

The 28-year-old Butler is a Vicksburg, Mississippi, native who went undrafted out of West Alabama but spent the past four seasons with the New England Patriots.

Leon expects that Goldman will make a formal announcement before the end of the year on a new chief executive, probably Solomon. Before his current role, he co-headed the investment banking division and served as the global head of the financing group.

The New Orleans Saints pursued Butler as a restricted free agent past year, but the trade price was too high.

Although Butler's play was down in 2017, he still led the Patriots in defensive snaps. Interestingly, Butler was beaten twice for touchdowns by rookie wide receiver Corey Davis in the Patriots' divisional-round victory over the Titans. The following season, in 2015, Butler proved to everyone that he was more than just a Super Bowl hero when he was named to the Pro Bowl. Before the tampering window opened, Florio reported that Lewis was in the market for a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $18 million.

As for the Patriots, they'll move on without one of their best cornerbacks.

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.
