Patriots lose Malcolm Butler for season

NFL: AUG 11 Preseason - Giants at Patriots
Getty Images

Malcolm Butler‘s comeback season in New England was short-lived.

Butler, the veteran cornerback who signed with the Patriots in March, was placed on season-ending injured reserve today. It’s unclear specifically what kind of injury Butler suffered, but he hasn’t practiced since last week’s preseason opener.

The 32-year-old Butler spent his first four NFL seasons with the Patriots, and he had the game-winning interception in Super Bowl XLIX. But his last game in New England, a bizarre benching in Super Bowl LII, was a career lowlight, the reasons for which have still never been fully explained.

After that game Butler played three seasons with the Titans, and then last year he signed with the Cardinals only to announce his retirement at the end of the preseason. Early this year Butler said he wanted to play again and the Cardinals released him from the reserve/retired list, making him a free agent.

The Patriots also placed Joejuan Williams on injured reserve, meaning they’ve lost two cornerbacks for the season today.

  1. I really don’t think he was making the team anyway but good on him for coming back and giving it a shot.

    His short time back proves beyond any doubt that he accepts the reason for the benching as his own responsibility. Indisputable. If it was the coach’s ego as the Tommy fan club likes to tell us he wouldnt have been back at all. Especially knowing he was probably not likely to make the team.

  2. I wasn’t sure he was going to make the team with healthier, younger players like Mitchell and Shaun Wade in the mix. A full year off and trying to come back. seemed iffy.

    Plus, they Jon Jones is at LCB and dominating, so he and Mills are likely the perimeter starters, with Marcus Jones and Bryant in the middle.

    Jack Jones still is a dark horse to surprise probably in spots when needed.

  3. I had read that the week before the SB, Malcolm had already cleaned out his locker, knowing there was no way he was going to sign an extension. Not the locker room chatter you need heading into a SB. The week after might have been a better choice.

  4. The fact is Tommy choked in that Eagles Super Bowl. Had nothing to do with Butler.

    Tommy had the ball with 2 minutes left down 5… I mean he is the Goat right fan club? Isn’t that what you wanted to see? I doubt you’d rather have Butler play than put Tommy in that spot lol.

    And he fumbled. He choked in the biggest moment possible. Fact. Stone cold FACT.

  5. A full year off and trying to come back. seemed iffy.

    Exactly. And he knew this and gave it a shot anyway. Good on him.

    Weird that he did that and the Patriots have the same coach whose “ego” benched him in the SB for no reason at all or so I’ve heard from the fan club. 😂

  6. I would love to see all NFL teams battle it out at full strength but that’s football.. a battle of luck, attrition, and knowing you will never see that awesome August roster in January.

    It had to do with BB’s defense being unable to stop the Nick Foles led Eagles all game. Kind of like how they were unable to stop Josh Allen and the Bills last January. I am seeing a pattern here

    Dude, Tom Brady lives rent free in your head. Every time I see a comment that bashes Brady, I know 9 times out of 10 it’s you. Just let it go. Life is too short to be this obsessed over someone you don’t know and has done nothing to you. Hopefully, for your own health, you can move on.

  9. Ah, if you look at the final score – 41 to 33, it would appear Belichick’s the defense choked, not Brady. Scoring 33 points should win you 9 out of 10 SBs. Simply put, Belichick’s defense was out coached and out played by the Eagles.

  10. “Choked” is such an overused term. Anytime a QB makes any mistake, too many fans hop on that term.

    But, Pats fans SHOULD be consistent. If they repeated dozens of times that Manning choked in the Colts/Saints SB, then TB choked against Philly.

  11. Belichick’s greatest moment and worst moment centered around Butler. The greatest was not calling timeout against Seattle at the goal line which resulted in a stupid Pete Carroll play call and Butler made the play. The worst was when he benched Butler against the Eagles and probably cost the Pats another Super Bowl.

  12. Is this a part of Belichick’s master plan? There must be some young phenom he’s been hiding about to burst on to the scene that will prove his genius again.

    And yet Tommy still had the ball down 5 with 2 minutes left. Instead of doing what GOAts are supposed to do – he fumbled to lose the game. That was on him alone. Had nothing to do with Butler.

    I think it’s interesting thet it seems the Tommyites would rather see Butler play than put Tommy in the position that he was. Right in his wheelhouse. At least for a GOAT.

    Yep. He also faked the flu, took a separte plane out and told the coaches to “shut the F up” when they jokingly asked what took him so long.

    Brady was leading a locker room revolt all the way back in 2017 with his diva antics, enabling others.

  16. Sucks to see anyone get injured but atleast he won’t have to suffer through the weekly humiliations as the worst defense in history gets blown out and embarrassed again and again and again. Looking forward to it.

  17. I think BB putting him on IR for the season and paying him was Bills way of saying I’m sorry I benched you in the Super Bowl. I could have handled it better ……

  18. I wasn’t sure he was going to make the team with healthier, younger players like Mitchell and Shaun Wade in the mix.

    Everyone wants to figure out who on the Patriots to blame for the loss. But is it possible, just maybe possible, that Philly came with a really good team that played a really good game? Does any credit go to them? Or is the narrative that it was 100% the Patriots choking against a lesser team?

    And Butler came back to the Patriots knowing full well he was kinda a long shot to make the roster being off a year and risking that the coach would cut him after the “humiliation” of the benching in SB52. That is clearly an admission that the benching was because of Butler himself and not the coach’s. it’s not that hard to understand. QED. Finis. Book closed.

  21. Or is the narrative that it was 100% the Patriots choking against a lesser team?

    I’m just pointing out the fact among all the noise about the Butler benching that Brady had a chance to win the game with one more drive and he failed miserably to do so. I guess my bar for a GOAT is a little higher than some. 🙂

    Jordan would never in his sport. He always raised his game and got it done.

    That’s a really great point and it really is interesting too that the same folks who talk like LoOk aT PeYToNs OnE aNd DoNeS LoLzz give Tommy a pass for not getting it done here. In fact there have been plenty of games where he has choked or hasn’t gotten it done including of course the biggest loss in the history of pro sports in this country SB42. That’s a choke too. He actually quietly does have a decent track record of falling short In the biggest moments. But that’s ok somehow. Lol.

  25. Sorry Butler is hurt, but I agree with others that he probably wasn’t going to make the team anyway. Still, as an UFA and Belichick’s keen eye and astute coaching, Butler made about 47 mil playing NFL FB. May be remembered as making the greatest D play in SB history. Or,reaching a mysterious low by not playing against the Eagles.He’ll make money on the memoir and the film too. Best of luck

    Does this include the incompletion to Clement that Troy Vincent cheated with where it was called a TD l, even though everyone in America, including Michaels and Collinsworth, knew it was incomplete by NFL rule?

    Funny, I never saw the Pat be gifted a free td in the Super Bowl before.

    Philly played a nice game, NE was wrought with injuries on D and no Edelman. but Brady dropped a 40 yard pass wide open and fumbled badly at the end.

    Ha! Jordan quit his entire sport and tried baseball and motorcycle racing when he couldn’t take it anymore, being pushed by Phil Jackson. Talk about a quitter.

    THAT is Butler’s legacy not the benching.

    Brady’s career doesn’t come without bad games or chokes like the 07 SB, I agree, but The difference is Brady ALSO has some of the greatest comebacks and wins as well. 10 SBs and 7 wins, That’s undisputable. Arguing otherwise is utter nonsense in 2022.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    You have to understand the power of “laser focus” of Belichick believers and Brady haters.

    If Brady had 6 bad games in 30 games, and Manning had 6 bad games in 10 games, they can’t see any difference to these people.

    It is, but seems like a double standard for us to mock Peyton for one and dones when Brady has had plenty of his own moments to forget. The Jets loss is another one. Inexcusable.

    I stopped taunting Manning about that stuff years ago when I started to know better. Peyton is an all time great and should be respected as one. Imo.

    Peyton is an all time great, one of my favorite QBs ever. But argue apples to apples. You mention the 9 one and dones for Peyton, but follow it with ‘Brady had his moments to forget’. They’re not the same, and why not? Because Brady doesn’t have all the one and dones and that’s the point. A major point.

    Brady got the crap beat out of him in the 07 SB and yet he still managed to give the Pats a 4 point lead with under 2:00 to go in the game. Only to watch BB’s prevent defense choke away the game to Eili

  35. And I don’t want to hear how the great BB (best coach ever IMO) started Malcolm Butler all year long and then decided he didn’t fit into the Super Bowl game-plan against Nick Foles. All because he didn’t pay attention as much in the two weeks leading up to the game, had a bad attitude, or whatever. Shame on both Butler AND Belichick to put that above the TEAM. It costs them the game.

    Show me a QB/team that lost the SB when their offense put up 33 points. ONE, the Pars vs Eagles. Over 50 years of SBs and that had never happened before, that loss is solely on the defense.

  36. Please remember :

    You can’t reason with people who will drop his pants and underwear when being accused of stealing money. (like Brady should have handed over his phone, otherwise it proves that he had cheated)

  37. Brady got the crap beat out of him in the 07 SB and yet he still managed to give the Pats a 4 point lead with under 2:00 to go in the game. Only to watch BB’s prevent defense choke away the game to Eili

    Sorry when the greatest offense of all time manages just 14 points – especially after the QB ran his mouth at them before the game- that QB doesn’t get a pass for anything. He was atrocious.

    And let’s not pretend the Giants in those Super Bowls were the 86 Bears. Too many of us do. The 07 Giants had the 17th ranked defense in the league and the 11 Giants were the 29th ranked pass defense and Brady’s offense couldn’t do sweet jack squat against them both times. 07 Pats offense didn’t seem to have any problems against them in week 17 so what was Tommy’s problem in the Super Bowl?

    The defense played well both times. 17 points and 19 points allowed should have been more then enough for the “GOAT”.

  38. Butler was such a Longshot that he got a nine million dollar contract they have to pay. Pats fans are deluded. 😆 🤣 😂 😹 😆 LOLOL

  39. Butler’s legacy was built up and shattered by Belichick at the same time. A lot of fans have mixed feelings. All the Patriots needed was one stop on third down or a turnover on downs in the fourth quarter and Super Bowl LII would have had a different end result.

    Ravens vs SF.

    That’s 1. Most of these SBs are now 30 point affairs. Whoever has the ball last, wins. Brady choked and dropped an easy catch and then had a chance to redeem himself on the last drive.

    You people act like NFL shootouts don’t happen
    when it’s exactly what the league wants. This doean’t even count Goodell cheating giving Philly two TDs that were not TDs by rule. He was never going to play clean after NE was winning 2/3 SBs going into that game.

    Philly allowed over 30 points as well. Nick Foles played better than Brady who we now know was a baby whining about a long term contract.

    Get over it.

    Brady was also outplayed by the Giants 2x.

    You can’t act like he is infallible and then ignore the gaffes or
    flaws.

    ___________________

    I am the one who makes it 10. TB is a great QB, but others where better, plain and simple. The players of their era have already spoken, they would rather face Brady than Manning. Manning was the team, Brady was good part of his team. Dude benefited from countless great defensive plays from the great NE defense. Brady makes football simple, which is good. Throw 7 yard passes and let the receiver get the other 3. Remember, when they tried to make Brady a gunslinger? 10 years of nothing. You see how he dumbed down Arians offense. Smart move Brady, definitely not the best, but you play within your talent and skill set and let the team take care of the rest.

  42. BB foresaw this. “I can sign an older player and pay him millions to stay home and not contribute anything” BUST of a GM

  43. Bb didn’t choke the Philly sb away, they gave it away. The guy that replaced Butler was getting torched. It was an easy fix, it was BB’s pride that cost them the game.

  44. After all the leaks from other investigations, the last entity I would voluntarily hand over my phone to is the NFL

  45. Nite2al,

    Would Peyton or Rodgers be able to score 24 or more in 2 playoff games with the cheap squad given by Belichick?

  46. Brady choked and dropped an easy catch and then had a chance to redeem himself on the last drive.
    —————-

    Dropped a catch a couple minutes into the 2nd quarter. He would not have scored even if he caught the ball.

  47. And let’s not pretend the Giants in those Super Bowls were the 86 Bears. Too many of us do. The 07 Giants had the 17th ranked defense in the league and the 11 Giants were the 29th ranked pass defense and Brady’s offense couldn’t do sweet jack squat against them both times. 07 Pats offense didn’t seem to have any problems against them in week 17 so what was Tommy’s problem in the Super Bowl?
    ===========

    Easy to argue those Giants teams were the worst in Super Bowl history.

  48. Bill doesn’t care what you, I or any media bozo thinks. Bill knows football like no else and has the independence of mind and guts to act on probabilities instead of peeing his pants in conformity. I’ll take my chances with him as coach/gm and help yourself to the 31 flavors of the month.

  49. Easy to argue that Giants team were the worst in super bowl histor

    ++++++++++

    Look like Belichick believers don’t realize that is a gigantic slap on Belichick’s face.

  50. Would Peyton or Rodgers be able to score 24 or more in 2 playoff games with the cheap squad given by Belichick?
    ==========

    Packers playoff points per game with Aaron Rodgers starting; 28

    Patriots playoff points per game with Tom Brady starting; 27

  51. 28 vs 27

    ++++++++

    #1, you forget what 2011 Giants did to Rodgers who scored a TD in garbage time.

    #2, given that Rodgers scored only 1 more point on average proves how great Brady was, considering the supporting cast. A fifth grade would be able to see it.

    #3, no one deny how great Rodgers was when he could do what he liked to do. Unfortunately, it is about when he couldn’t do what he did. (Know what 1-game series means here?)

  52. Look like Belichick believers don’t realize that is a gigantic slap on Belichick’s face.
    =========

    Daily, I have no doubt, Brady and Belichick ask themselves;

    “how did we lose to those guys?”

    18-1………

  53. #1, you forget what 2011 Giants did to Rodgers who scored a TD in garbage time.

    #2, given that Rodgers scored only 1 more point on average proves how great Brady was, considering the supporting cast.
    ==========

    Nah, I’ll never forget 2011.. that burns as badly as any loss ever for me.

    As for #2…

    1 record-breaking unit for each guy; 2007 for Brady (#2 all-time) 2011 for Rodgers (#4)

    The Packers have had the #1 offense 3x… exact same for the Patriots

    Top 5 7x for Rodgers… 11x for Brady, with a larger sample size, but 9 in a row 2010-2018.

    Looks to me like Brady had a better offense to work with.

    .. but I wasn’t a math major.

  54. I guess you don’t know that Gronk was injured in AFCCG before the SB.

    Try again.

    I said again and again : when an offense depends on big plays, it is almost destined to fail in ONE of the playoff games, (a proof that Belichick the garbage had no clue when he changed the offense system in 2007.) The reason why Peyton and Rodgers had such big trouble winning SB, … and you still trying to judge a QB ALL by his ability of making big plays.

    The ONLY SB Rodgers won, thanks to how badly Bears QB played in NFCCG that saved him.

  55. Belichick knows football like no one else

    +++++++++

    When he cried in 2020 playoff that Brady played Patriots system, the “genius” obviously didn’t realize that the whole system depended on QB’s ability of seeing opportunities quickly and in advance.

    If he had any clue at all, he would have known that Cam Newton would have no chance in the system, and would have let him go after 2020 season.

    Here, the logic is very very very very simple, like “A father must be a man. The person is not a man, hence the person is not a father.” All the arguments and claim trying to show that the person is a father is nonsense and ignorant.

  56. The ONLY SB Rodgers won, thanks to how badly Bears QB played in NFCCG that saved him.
    ==========

    Myth.

    The offense thoroughly dominated the first half of that game. The Bears were inept. 8 punts and an INT in their first 9 drives.

    As Lovie always did, his D adjusted and kept them in the game.

    And would you care to talk about the other games that Super Bowl run? Atlanta, the #1 seed, was the best game of his career. @ Philly in the Wild Card; the 4th best game of his playoff career… and of course, the Super Bowl, where he was MVP, with no less than 7 points left on the board due to WR dropsies.

    Or should we just talk about bad Brady game? The 2 Baltimore curbstopmings? The Denver beatdown? 2 of those were Title Games, in case you’ve forgotten.

  57. I guess you don’t know that Gronk was injured in AFCCG before the SB.
    ==========

    Injuries are a problem for every team.

    You don’t hear me whining the Packers were down 2 All-Pro lineman last year.

  58. Ya, not the #1 player and the only big guy, and in the game before SB.

    Offense dominated in first half against Bears? Lol.

    Anyway, Rodgers’s Peyton’s pathetic performance when his big plays were taken away showed how they would play for beliCHEAP.

  59. Offense dominated in first half against Bears? Lol.
    ==========

    Outgained them 324-85 through the opening drives of the 3rd Q.

    If that isn’t domination, what is?

  60. Aaron Rodgers couldn’t even throw one touchdown against the 49ers. And he’s now 0-4 against them in the playoffs in his career. Brady on his worst day in the playoffs is still a more clutch quarterback than Peyton and Rodgers combined.

  61. Malcolm Butler will always be such a great story. From Popeyes to the NFL to making arguably the greatest defensive play in Super Bowl history. The emotion. Being told he just won the Super Bowl and he’s a Super Bowl hero. Disney couldn’t have written it better than that.

    That’s how I’ll always remember him. Not the benching.

  62. Is this a part of Belichick’s master plan? There must be some young phenom he’s been hiding about to burst on to the scene that will prove his genius again.

    JC Jackson was an undrafted FA.
    Butler was too

    You rip the guy for not drafting well, but don’t give credit for the guys he grabbed late or as rookie FA. Kind of hypocritical
