Lions, Texans interested in Pats CB Butler

Report Dolphins are one of many teams interested in Patriots RB Dion Lewis

The Lions were interested in Butler as a No. 2 cornerback, but after he chose the Titans, they reached agreement on a two-year, $10.3 million contract with their No. 2 cornerback from last season, Nevin Lawson, per Jason La Canfora.

A contract at that level will position the New England Patriots for a possible high compensatory draft choice in 2019.

But just over a month ago, Butler rode the bench as the Patriots ultimately fell in Super Bowl LII, a healthy scratch that has yet to be explained in detail.

Packers to sign Pro Bowl TE Jimmy Graham
Graham, 31, spent the past three seasons with the Seahawks, where he was second on the team in targets and receptions last season. In Seattle, Graham struggled to make the same impact as he dealt with injuries and was no longer a focal point of the offense.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Titans will sign Butler to a five-year deal worth $61 million, with $30 million guaranteed.

Butler's move to Tennessee will unite him with former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel, who took over head coaching duties after the Titans lost in the AFC Divisional Playoff Game to New England. That's a massive pay raise for the 27-year-old, who played the 2017 season on a one-year, $3.91 million tender and made $600,000 or less in each of his first three National Football League seasons.

Some have wondered whether the 28-year-old's down season in 2017, capped by the now infamous Super Bowl benching, would limit his market in free agency, but there still appear to be plenty of suitors. Between those career landmarks, Butler started 54 of a possible 55 games and played more defensive snaps than any Patriots player.

Butler's departure leaves the Patriots with a need at cornerback this offseason.
