The one splash move many Detroit Lions fans were hoping the team would still make was for cornerback Malcolm Butler. Many hoped the reunion with Matt Patricia would lead to the Lions having one of the best cornerback duos in the league.
Unfortunately, ESPN’s Adam Schefter put an end to those dreams on Tuesday night. According to Schefter, Butler has agreed to terms to join the Tennessee Titans.
Former Patriots’ CB Malcolm Butler intends to sign with the Tennessee Titans, per sources. Butler will play for former Patriots’ LB Mike Vrabel and former Pats’ personnel man Jon Robinson.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2018
The Titans were a bit of an underdog in the Butler sweepstakes,but apparently they won over the veteran cornerback with a monster deal.
