Just three years ago, cornerback Malcolm Butler was the darling of the New England Patriots' Super Bowl victory, intercepting Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to seal his team's win. The New Orleans Saints, who considered trying to acquire Butler before trading wide receiver Brandin Cooks to the Patriots past year, have shown a renewed interest, per Dianna Russini of ESPN.'s Ian Rapoport says the Titans are signing Butler on a 5-year contract worth more than $61 million with more than $30 million guaranteed.

Despite Butler's sudden stardom, Belichick said at one point in 2015 that Butler "as much as any player that I've been around, has really not changed very much from Year 1 to Year 2".

Aditya's medical examination is being carried on and he is likely to be questioned by the authorities on 13 March. The report further suggested that the rickshaw driver and the woman passenger were badly injured in the accident.

Free agent cornerback Malcolm Butler, who played with the New England Patriots from 2014-17, may not stay on the free agency market long. That's a massive pay raise for the 27-year-old, who played the 2017 season on a one-year, $3.91 million tender and made $600,000 or less in each of his first three National Football League seasons.

Butler's Patriots career ended on a odd, disappointing note as Bill Belichick benched him for all defensive snaps in Super Bowl LII. The New Orleans Saints hosted Butler on a visit but never signed him to an offer sheet.

Butler surprisingly didn't play a defensive snap in the New England Patriots' 41-33 Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles due to what coach Bill Belichick described as a coaching decision. Butler's arrival will push Ryan into a pure slot cornerback role, which has become as important as a left tackle in today's NFL.
