DT - MIA
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Dolphins have signed DT Adam Butler to a two-year deal.
The Dolphins continue to load up on former New England Patriot defenders as this time it's Butler who joins Miami on a two-year deal, reportedly worth up to $9.5M. Head coach Brian Flores spent three years with Butler, 26-years old, while in New England. In 2020, Butler had 34 total tackles and four sacks.
Adam Butler signed his restricted-free agent tender with the Patriots on Friday. The tender is worth $3.26 million.
Butler recorded 26 tackles, six sacks and five passes defensed across 16 games in 2019. He has yet to miss a game in his last three seasons and should play a key role in the Patriots defensive line. The 26-year-old is mainly an option in deep-league IDP formats.
