  • Malcolm Butler Signing With Titans After Four Seasons With Patriots

Butler was an undrafted free-agent out of Division II West Alabama in 2014 and has eight interceptions over his four-year career.

On Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported Houston is "among several National Football League teams displaying interest" in the New England Patriots cornerback.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the Butler deal is worth $61 million, with more than $30 million guaranteed.

Some have wondered whether the 28-year-old's down season in 2017, capped by the now infamous Super Bowl benching, would limit his market in free agency, but there still appear to be plenty of suitors. He had the game-saving interception at the goal line to help New England beat the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, but was suspiciously left on the sideline as the Patriots lost Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles this year.

However, analysts said this will bring in only a short-term relief to the industry reeling under financial stress. The NCDs of up to Rs10,000 crore can be raised in tranches or a series at rates may be approved from time to time.


Butler's Patriots career ended on a unusual, disappointing note as Bill Belichick benched him for all defensive snaps in Super Bowl LII.

The Houston Texans are reportedly interested in bolstering their secondary through the addition of cornerback Malcolm Butler.

NFL Insider Adam Schefter the cornerback will play for former Patriots' LB Mike Vrabel and former Pats' personnel man Jon Robinson. Between those career landmarks, Butler started 54 of a possible 55 games and played more defensive snaps than any Patriots player.

Butler's durability was impressive in his time with the Patriots, as he played 98.8 percent of the defensive snaps in 2015, followed by 96.7 and 97.8 in the next two seasons.
