While it was widely speculated Malcolm Butler would be leaving the New England Patriots at season’s end, it appears to be a done deal.

Butler, who was signed by the Patriots as a undrafted free agent in 2014, blossomed into a star who was most known for his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in Super Bowl XLIX.

However, since last season there had been some reports of some rift between Butler and the Patriots which furthered when they signed Stephon Gilmore to a five-year, $65 million contract last offseason.

Things hit a boiling point when Butler, who played over 98 percent of the Patriots’ snaps on defense in the regular season, saw the field for one play on special teams Sunday in the biggest game of the year. Some will argue the move cost New England the game.

  1. Malcolm Butler is a fine and upstanding young man whom I support and agree that he was falsely accused of whatever …. best of everything and if you had played , it may have made a difference in Super Bowl 52 but we shall never know … Farewell and I pray that life beings you numerous opportunities for sucess and happiness .
