Malcolm Butler To Sign With Titans

Report 49ers among 7 teams interested in Patriots RB Dion Lewis

But Butler has a new home, in a place where he's clearly wanted: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Butler has agreed to a five-year, $61 million with the Tennessee Titans, with over $30 million guaranteed.

In Schefter's initial tweet, the deal between Lewis and the Titans was reportedly for four years.

Coming off what was a career year in 2017, free-agent running back Dion Lewis will have a few different options available as he ponders his next move.

We will continue to provide updates as they become available. He still managed to start Tennessee's first 15 games, but a knee injury kept Murray from playing in the Titans' regular-season finale and the postseason.

Lewis had his first season with New England in 2015 season cut short by knee surgery after seven games. He added 32 catches for 214 yards and three receiving touchdowns, while also serving as the team's primary kickoff returner (23 returns, 570 yards, 1 touchdown).

Nonetheless, the Titans know plenty about Butler - with general manager Jon Robinson having come from the Patriots organization. Lewis is one of the best dual-threat backs in the league, capable of breaking tackles up the middle, beating defenders to the edge, and making plays in the passing game. He played only one snap - on special teams - in New England's 41-33 loss to Philadelphia.

Signed as an afterthought undrafted free agent, Butler stole the Super Bowl XLIX spotlight after saving the victory with an end-zone interception as a last-second substitution.
