Ex-Pats Malcolm Butler, Dion Lewis To Sign Big Contracts With Titans

After the reported deal with star cornerback Malcolm Butler, the Titans have agreed to terms with Dion Lewis.

"I never got a reason", Butler said. I feel like it is a great fit for me. I went to the hospital. It could have been anything.

Mike Vrabel spent eight years in New England playing under Bill Belichick. It didn't work out right (against the Philadelphia Eagles).

Lewis had his first season with New England in 2015 season cut short by knee surgery after seven games. But I can say he won more than he lost, so it is what it is. Being doubted my whole life, just using that.

Butler is one of several cogs in the Pats machine departing for other squads this off-season.

Butler's tenure in New England ended on a sour note, but he is not holding any grudges.

In Tennessee, the 5-foot-11, 190-pounder will join veteran cornerback Logan Ryan, his former teammate in New England, and promising second-year cornerback Adoree' Jackson in a secondary that also includes Pro Bowl safety Kevin Byard and veteran safety Johnathan Cyprien. For the most part, they really had love for me. I would never be bitter for not getting a chance from anybody.

As it's turned out, Tom Brady has been Butler's greatest supporter, as recently as last night when the quarterback wrote on Instagram they'd be "brothers for life". "They loved me at times when they shouldn't love me".

"It means a lot", Butler said. Butler told Howe that Brady has been calling to check up on him this offseason. But in that same breath, he must also be called a Super Bowl scapegoat of sorts. "I'm real aggressive, and I can't wait to get out there". He said he hasn't talked to Belichick since the Super Bowl, and thus doesn't know why for sure, but he has a theory.

"Nobody's ever wanted me", Lewis said.

"I recovered pretty fast". I always looked up to him and I always looked up to anyone who made it to the National Football League from Mississippi. "Even when you're not ready to move on, you've got to move on, so I just kept moving on, just tried to keep my confidence up and rebuild everything from the ground up". But of course maybe he did follow up and Butler skirted around the question. The money the Titans are giving him places Butler just inside the top 10 at the position in terms of average per year and practical guarantees.

Malcolm Butler of the New England Patriots intercepts a pass by Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLIX.

In fact, Butler is shaking his head as well.

Now a Tennessee Titan, Butler knows this. "And I am going to do anything to help this team win".
