Footballguys view: Brown should return on Tuesday, but since this is an estimation, it's an indication that he's not 100%. Corey Davis and Adam Humphries are both on the covid list, so Brown, Jonnu Smith, and Kalif Raymond will have to shoulder the load in the passing game.

Footballguys view: At this point you have to wonder if Brown will play next week against Pittsburgh in a big AFC tilt. Adam Humphries and Corey Davis are both in positions to succeed against a Vikings secondary without their top two corners this week.

I love how hard he plays. There's a lot of great snaps in there, and there are some snaps we'd all like to have back.' Vrabel said the team needs to do a better job of coaching technique to allow Butler to make more plays in coverage.

  Jets | NYJ likely to target Malcolm Butler    Fri Mar 9, 12:03 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent CB Malcolm Butler is expected to be on the radar of the New York Jets in free agency, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: Butler could be the team's backup plan at corner. There have been plenty of reports that indicate the Jets will be after Trumaine Johnson (Rams) as their top priority on defense. If they don't get Johnson, the Jets could look to Butler. He's unlikely to stay with the Patriots after getting benched for Super Bowl LII.

New England Patriots impending free-agent CB Malcolm Butler will be pursued by the New York Jets once free agency opens in mid-March, according to Newsday.com's Calvin Watkins.

Footballguys view: Morris Claiborne was a nice free agent pickup by the Jets last year, but he was only signed to a one-year deal. Butler would be a long-term solution at outside corner.

  Jets | Malcolm Butler of interest to Jets?    Thu Feb 8, 12:28 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent CB Malcolm Butler is expected to be a target of the New York Jets once free agency commences. The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta posits that the Jets need a true No. 1 cornerback alongside CB Morris Claiborne and that Butler fits the bill. Claiborne is also an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Footballguys view: If the Jets can land Butler, that frees them up with the 6th overall pick to move in a different direction. A lot of analysts have the Jets going defensive back in their mocks, but this move would allow them to address the quarterback position with that pick instead.

  Patriots | Malcolm Butler denies accusations    Tue Feb 6, 04:40 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent CB Malcolm Butler said he never missed curfew or participated in any 'ridiculous activities' during Super Bowl week. Butler added that he wished he could have done more to help the Patriots win, but at the same time he is preparing for his next opportunity.

Footballguys view: He's going to have some explaining to do as Butler is set to hit the free agent market this spring. Teams are certainly going to check into this to see if there's a deeper problem or if it just was a case of the Patriots wanting to use different packages. From our standpoint, it's difficult to fully trust either side in this situation.

  Patriots | Some clarification on Malcolm Butler    Mon Feb 5, 07:03 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots impending free-agent CB Malcolm Butler was benched for the Super Bowl due to several reasons, including showing up a day later than teammates because he was sick and struggling in practices. Head coach Bill Belichick has been vague as to the specific reasoning behind Butler's benching.

Footballguys view: As we get further away from this situation we should start learning more but may never know the entire truth. Either way, the Patriots are likely to move on from Butler this offseason.
