Vicksburg Native Malcolm Butler To Play One Step Close To Home

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — After drawing the ire of Patriots Coach Bill Belicek and being benched for the Super Bowl, Vicksburg native Malcolm Butler may be playing a little closer to home this season.’s Ian Rapoport says Butler intends to sign with the Tennessee Titans today. The 5-year contract is reportedly worth more than $61 million with more than $30 million guaranteed. In his rookie season with the Patriots, the Vicksburg High School alum made NFL history with an incredible game-ending interception in Super Bowl XLIX. He intercepted Russell Wilson’s pass at the goal line with 20 seconds left in the game, preventing a go-ahead touchdown from the Seattle Seahawks. New England won that Super Bowl, 28-24. Butler was also part of the Patriots’ Super Bowl LI 34-28 overtime victory against the Atlanta Falcons. He made headlines following this year’s Super Bowl though after he was benched before kickoff. The Patriots lost that game 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles.
