Malcolm Butler: Set to join Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler is slated to sign with the Titans, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After signing with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent, Butler eventually carved out a key role in the Patriots' secondary, notably clinching the team's win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX with a last-minute pick. He'll slide into a starting role with Tennessee, where he'll play for former Patriots' player Mike Vrabel, who now coaches the Titans.

Patriots' Malcolm Butler: Sees just one snap in Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler's only snap in Super Bowl LII came on special teams.

The cornerback was healthy enough to suit up and had played all 74 snaps on defense in the AFC championship game, so head coach Bill Belichick's decision to sit Butler remains puzzling. Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, it's not a matter Belichick wants to go into any detail on at this stage. In any case, Butler is eligible to become a free agent this offseason, and after Sunday it's hard to imagine him returning to the Patriots in 2018. During the regular season, Butler was on the field for 97.8 percent of New England's defensive snaps en route to recording 60 tackles, two picks and three forced fumbles.

Patriots' Malcolm Butler: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (illness) was a full participant at practice Thursday.

Butler missed Super Bowl Opening Night due to his illness and was limited at practice Wednesday. His full participation seems to indicate he won't be hindered at all by the illness, barring further setback, come time for Sunday's game.

Patriots' Malcolm Butler: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (illness) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Due to an illness, Butler took a later flight to Minnesota than the rest of his teammates, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. Butler was thus absent from Super Bowl Opening Night on Monday and "definitely still sounds sick" as of Wednesday, per Howe. Although he expects to play Sunday versus the Eagles, Butler's status could come down to the wire if the ailment lingers.

Patriots' Malcolm Butler: Won't participate in Super Bowl Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler is dealing with an illness and will not be present at Super Bowl Opening Night on Monday.

Butler remained off the injury report last week as the undisclosed illness appears to be a recent development. The 27-year-old's status for Super Bowl Sunday is unlikely to be affected, but the team's practice sessions later this week should provide some clarity to where Butler is at in the recovery process.
