  • Reports Patriots Sign Rex Burkhead To Three Year Deal

The NFL Free Agency period is usually full of drama, and a new development on the Malcolm Butler front would make for quite the story. They committed $61 million ($30M guaranteed) over five years, a rather large investment considering Butler's benching at the Super Bowl and his up-and-down performance in 2017.

Butler is expected to sign with the Titans when free agency begins. Building on that success, he earned a Pro Bowl nod in his second season, won a second title in his third season and led the 2017 Patriots defense in snaps before the Super Bowl controversy closed out his fourth year. He was the hero in their Super Bowl win over the Seahawks, but he became a huge storyline after being benched in the Super Bowl. The New Orleans Saints, who considered trying to acquire Butler before trading wide receiver Brandin Cooks to the Patriots previous year, have shown a renewed interest, per Dianna Russini of ESPN. It's the blockbuster contract he sought but never received from the Patriots. Last offseason, the Patriots signed cornerback Stephon Gilmore to a five-year, $65 million deal.

Tennesse parted ways with head coach Mike Mularkey and hired as his replacement Mike Vrabel, who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots. He finished with nine total touchdowns and 1,110 yards from scrimmage. Devin McCourty served as the leader of the defensive backfield in each of Butler's campaigns in New England, and the star safety clearly was excited about the 28-year-old's new contract. General manager Jon Robinson got his start in the National Football League as a scout with the Patriots.
