NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WHDH) — Cornerback Malcolm Butler’s agent says he has agreed to a five-year deal worth more than $60 million.
Derek Simpson told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Butler will sign the deal including $30 million guaranteed once free agency begins.
Butler, 28, has spent his entire four-year career with the Patriots after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama. Butler worked his way onto the depth chart in 2015 and made a crucial play in the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks, intercepting a pass at the goal line that helped the Patriots hold on to win.
The Tennessee Titans declined to comment because free agency does not begin until Wednesday afternoon.
Butler spent the past four seasons with the New England Patriots and has eight career interceptions. He was benched for the Super Bowl in February.
The Titans signed Butler’s teammate cornerback Logan Ryan last season and needed help in the secondary to go along with cornerback Adoree Jackson.
