NFLPA files formal complaint over Malcolm Butler's benching
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The NFLPA filed a formal complaint Thursday over the punishment of Patriots safety Malcolm Butler during team OTAs, per the Boston Globe

Butler was late to a team practice during OTAs due to a flight being delayed due to inclement weather. The team responded by preventing him from practicing. But OTA sessions are considered voluntary by the NFL, which raises issues about the team's handling of the situation. 

Butler, who declined to speak on the benching at the time, is not involved in the complaint process.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Malcolm Butler intercepted the pass that helped the Patriots claim the Super Bowl this past season, but he also was late for the team's first practice this offseason so he has been benched ever since, per The Boston Herald.

Butler was late for the first practice of organized team activities on May 26 because he missed a flight en route to Boston because of inclement weather. He has been held off the practice field for nearly three weeks.

Butler could be back at practice as early as Thursday.

Tom Brady wants to give MVP truck to Patriots teammate
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Tom Brady was named MVP of Super Bowl XLIX, but the Patriots quarterback wants to reward a teammate that saved the game. 

Brady's MVP honor included a red 2015 Chevrolet Colorado truck. Since he wouldn't have won the game or his third Super Bowl MVP honor without a game-saving interception by defensive back Malcolm Butler, Brady wants to share the wealth.

"I I would love to give him the truck," Brady said on Boston's WEEI radio, Tuesday morning. "I would love to do that. I’m going to figure out how to make that work." 

Butler made an interception on the Patriots' goal line in the final minute, preventing the Seahawks from scoring a game-winning touchdown.
