Dion Lewis Signs with the Tennessee Titans

Dion Lewis Colts

Malcolm Butler won't be following former New England coordinator Matt Patricia to Detroit, but he is staying in the Patriots' extended family.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapaport adds that Butler's deal is for five years and $61 million, $30 million of which is guaranteed.

Butler's move to Tennessee will reunite him with former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan, general manager Jon Robinson and first-year head coach Mike Vrabel.

Butler is most famous for his interception at the goal line in Super Bowl 49 to seal the victory for the Patriots over the Seahawks.

As expected, Malcolm Butler is on his way out of New England. He rose to unexpected fame with his Super Bowl interception, and the team showed its faith in him the following season, in 2015, by elevating him to the No. 1 spot on the depth chart to replace departed free agent Darrelle Revis. He had nine carries for 39 yards in the Patriots' 41-33 loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII. It's the blockbuster contract he sought but never received from the Patriots.

Butler, 28, has spent his entire four-year career with the Patriots after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama.

The Tennessee Titans have apparently chose to jump into the free agent arms race with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Butler would be a boost to a Lions' passing defense that ranked 27th in the league in 2017, giving up 243.25 yards through the air on average per game.

He played just seven games during his return in 2016, but he had a career season in 2017, leading New England with 896 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns.

Lewis joins a backfield already featuring Derrick Henry, the 2015 Heisman Trophy victor from Alabama, who had bided his time behind Murray his first two seasons.
