Tennesse parted ways with head coach Mike Mularkey and hired as his replacement Mike Vrabel, who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots.

The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with defensive back Malcolm Butler, formerly of the New England Patriots, on a 5-year, $61 million contract.

As expected, Malcolm Butler is on his way out of New England. The Titans declined to comment because free agency does not begin until Wednesday afternoon.

Ryan certainly has a lot of reason to celebrate now that his friend is coming to the AFC South. The Texans did show interest, but not enough.

Butler, 28, started every game in 2015 and 2016, earning a Pro Bowl berth in 2015, though his future with the team was uncertain after the 2016 season, when he was a restricted free agent.

Signed as an afterthought undrafted free agent, Butler stole the Super Bowl XLIX spotlight after saving the victory with an end-zone interception as a last-second substitution.

Last offseason Logan Ryan left the New England Patriots to sign a three-year, $30 million contract with the Tennessee Titans. It seemed to be such a disappointing end to a tenure that saw Butler become a Super Bowl hero. Butler didn't play a single defensive snap in the 41-33 defeat.

Rowe struggled mightily against the Eagles, as did the other defensive backs the Patriots used.

Butler returned to the Patriots in 2017 and had a self-described up-and-down season that culminated with Belichick's shocking decision not to play him on defense in Super Bowl LII.

Prior to that, he had started 15 out of 16 regular season games in 2017, tallying 55 tackles, two interceptions and 12 passes defensed.

It wasn't long ago that Butler was working at a Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen in Vicksburg, Miss., making $7.25 an hour frying chicken.
