Butler, 28, was mysteriously benched by Bill Belichick in Super Bowl LII and many second-guessed the decision following the Patriots' 41-33 loss to the Eagles. Butler worked his way onto the depth chart in 2015 and made a crucial play in the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks, intercepting a pass at the goal line that helped the Patriots hold on to win. Lewis is listed on New England's roster as 5-8 and 195 pounds. It's the blockbuster contract he sought but never received from the Patriots. Butler started 48 of his 59 games and has eight career interceptions. That offseason, the Patriots signed corner Stephon Gilmore to a five-year, $65 million contract.
