Dion Lewis to sign with Tennessee Titans

Cornerback Malcolm Butler, wide receiver Danny Amendola and running back Dion Lewis reportedly agreed to contracts with new teams Tuesday, one day before the official start of National Football League free agency, and Bayless offered a couple of thoughts on Twitter.

Butler will be reunited with two former Patriots in former linebacker Mike Vrabel and personnel man Jon Robinson.

He has eight interceptions and four forced fumbles in 59 career regular-season games (48 starts) since making the Patriots as an undrafted free agent from West Alabama in 2014.

Since the Super Bowl concluded five weeks ago, there has been a lot of discussion about where Lewis could end up next season.

The 28-year-old Butler was named to the Pro Bowl in 2015.

Butler saw his time with the Pats come to an obvious conclusion after the Super Bowl LII loss to the Eagles, as he was benched for reasons that have never been fully explained.

Butler is the second marquee free agent that the Patriots have let go along with wide receiver Danny Amendola, who is signing with the Miami Dolphins.

The cornerback was well-respected in the Patriots' locker room and played last season under a $3.9 million tender offer. Cornerback didn't feel like a massive need for the Titans, who would have been in the market to draft a corner with the 25th overall pick.

After releasing Murray, the Titans needed more help for quarterback Marcus Mariota and new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. He caught 32 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Lewis joins a backfield already featuring Derrick Henry, the 2015 Heisman Trophy victor from Alabama, who had bided his time behind Murray his first two seasons.

The hero of Super Bowl XLIX with a game-saving interception, Butler spent in New England four memorable years that included notable highs and lows.
