Malcolm Butler “All In” With The Patriots For 2017

Taylor McCloud — Pats Militia

When trade talks for Malcolm Butler died, I expected no pushback from the cornerback. While some half-expected him to hold out or cause a stir in New England, I did not. For the past three seasons, Butler has put his head down and gone to work for this team. He’s done everything asked of him and has done it without a complaint. I fully expected him to report to Foxborough for workouts when he was supposed to, and that’s what he did.

Obviously, this is top notch news. Butler is a bonafide number-one cornerback, and has provided the Patriots with something they’d otherwise be lacking.

I’ve pushed and pushed for the team to sign him to an extension, but that didn’t happen. Bill Belichick & co. held all the cards in this situation. $3.91M was the amount of money required to pay him for his services, so that’s what they paid. And, even though I don’t think forcing Butler to play under the RFA tender will bode well for his future with the Pats, the fact that he’ll be with them in 2017 is enough for me to get excited.

He is the best player in a secondary loaded with talent. He, alongside Stephon Gilmore, Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung have the chance to usurp the Seattle Seahawks as the best secondary in the NFL. Mix in a strong linebacking corps and a rejuvenated d-line, and you could be looking at one of the best defenses in the NFL. Unlike Butler playing under the tender, I think that bodes well for the future of this team.

Go Pats.
