Butler will pair up with Logan Ryan, who signed past year, and first round pick Adoree' Jackson.

In 2015, Malcolm Butler was a New England hero; an undrafted free agent rookie who made the biggest play in Super Bowl history to secure a Patriots victory in Super Bowl 49.

As for the Tennessee Titans, it's a deal few expected Butler to get after a rough season in New England.

He became the team's top corner the next season and did not disappoint, playing 90 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps while locking down the opposition's top receivers. Butler left the Patriots after he was benched in Super Bowl LII. It's the blockbuster contract he sought but never received from the Patriots. That offseason, the Patriots signed corner Stephon Gilmore to a five-year, $65 million contract.
