"It Is What It Is " Stephon Gilmore reacts with Malcolm Butler after intercepting a pass during a game against the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium on November 26, 2017.

Of course, he will always be part of Patriots' lore due to his game-saving interception of Seattle's Russell Wilson in Super Bowl XLIX following the 2014 season.

Cornerback Malcolm Butler intends to sign with the Tennessee Titans?on a five-year, $61 million deal that includes a guarantee of $30 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"It didn't work out right", Butler continued.

"I never got a reason [for being benched]", said Butler. "It's good to have people believe in you, and I've just got to make it right". I went to the hospital. It could have been anything, but I was not feeling too well and the New England Patriots are all about doing their job and they want everybody locked in and focused 100 percent and that probably was not the case. It could have been anything. Butler played alongside Ryan and signed under Robinson, formerly Bill Belichick's director of college scouting. The team also signed Logan Ryan away from New England a year ago, so it appears that Ryan and Butler will figure into the position prominently, along with 2017 first-round pick Adoree' Jackson.

"From the custodians to Belichick, all the way to Mr. Kraft, I love those guys, my teammates".

"Just my life", Lewis said to reporters.

New Trans-Pacific trade deal reached in Chile
For the fresh produce industry, the CPTPP provides preferential market access for suppliers targeting fellow member nations. The US, originally the biggest TPP economy, was one of the trade deal's strongest supporters before Mr Trump took office.

Butler went on to show his appreciation of Patriots fans and the love he will always have for New England.

Lewis was a monster for New England when he arrived in 2015, before an ACL tear and surgical complications put him on the shelf for a year. It's been more than a month since that game and we still don't have an explanation behind Butler's benching.

"I'll always have love for New England", Butler said. Butler told Howe that Brady has been calling to check up on him this offseason.

The Titans want to make a victor, and to do that you have to have people in the building that are used to winning, and know what it takes to get the job done.

Butler is one of several cogs in the Pats machine departing for other squads this off-season.

Of course, Butler landed comfortably with the Titans. He said he hasn't talked to Belichick since the Super Bowl, and thus doesn't know why for sure, but he has a theory.

Now a Tennessee Titan, Butler knows this. Regardless of the reasoning, it is clear that the decision did not work out in the Patriots' favor.
