Malcolm Butler is off the market after choosing Titans over Lions

Malcolm Butler is off the market after choosing Titans over Lions

The Lions were interested in Butler as a No. 2 cornerback, but after he chose the Titans, they reached agreement on a two-year, $10.3 million contract with their No. 2 cornerback from last season, Nevin Lawson, per Jason La Canfora.

After the reported deal with star cornerback Malcolm Butler, the Titans have agreed to terms with Dion Lewis. The team also signed Logan Ryan away from New England a year ago, so it appears that Ryan and Butler will figure into the position prominently, along with 2017 first-round pick Adoree' Jackson.

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

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 Patriots.

Butler made headlines following Super Bowl LII after he was benched before kickoff.




As expected, Malcolm Butler has found a new home.

After releasing Murray, the Titans needed more help for quarterback Marcus Mariota and new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. He's also been an important asset as a receiver, making 85 receptions the past three seasons (30 games) while catching almost 92 percent of his targets from Tom Brady last fall. He totaled 1,110 yards and nine touchdowns last season for New England.

Lewis would theoretically fill the 3rd down running back and "scat-back" niche in new head coach Frank Reich's offense, which utilized Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement, and Darren Sproles in similar capacities over the past two seasons with the Eagles.

In 16 games with the Patriots this season, Lewis rushed 180 times for 896 yards, while catching 32 passes for an additional 214 yards.
