CB - ARI
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Cardinals and CB Malcolm Butler have agreed to terms.
Butler had a productive season with the Titans in 2020. He played in all 16 games and had four interceptions to go along with 86 tackles. Cardinals needed to upgrade their secondary with Patrick Peterson leaving and this is a step in the right direction.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Titans are releasing veteran cornerback Malcolm Butler.
The release of Butler comes at no surprise at he was carrying a $10 million cap hit for 2021. The veteran CB had 100 tackles and four interceptions across 16 games last season.
Titans' starting CB Malcolm Butler showed up on the Tennessee Titans injury report today with a quad injury and was limited at practice.
Butler is a late addition to today's injury report. The Titan's D/ST was stifling in the second half against the Broncos. Even if Butler can't go, they should be considered a must-start this Sunday against Jacksonville.
The Titans placed Malcolm Butler (broken wrist) on injured reserve.
This likely ends his season unless the Titans make an improbable playoff run. His absence certainly hurts Tennessee's defense but it isn't a season-ruiner.
Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler (concussion) cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol Friday and is expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Jets.
Butler sustained the concussion in Monday night’s loss to the Texans and was a limited participant in Wednesday and Thursday practice before upgrading to full on Friday. He has struggled in his first season in Tennessee but vowed to finish the season on a high note. “My mental toughness has been tested to the fullest (this year), but I think I’ve handled it and I think I’ve responded,” Butler said, via the Associated Press. “I’m not giving in. I’m still working hard and playing hard and I’m going to finish strong.”
