Patriots star Malcolm Buter signs restricted free agent tender

Patriots star Malcolm Buter signs restricted free agent tender

The Patriots haven't entirely ignored the options available in this year's draft to help improve the offensive side of the football.

He's getting better ever year, and he fits into the stable of backs with different skill sets that the Patriots now possess.

The Saints also need to look at the draft coming up. If he does stay, Butler will join newly signed cornerback Stephon Gilmore to strengthen what's shaping up to be an unassailable secondary. "I think obviously now everyone is saying 'he's going to come here, he should come here.' But you never know".

This removes the opportunity for Butler to sign as a free agent with another organization.

Butler could remain with the Patriots for one more season before becoming an unrestricted free agent after this, his fourth season.

Currently, the Patriots don't have a pick in the first or second round of the draft. But he did explain how they might go about evaluating whether a player is worth drafting.

It makes sense for New Orleans to be interested in Butler and coach Sean Payton said at the league meetings last month the team plans to add two cornerbacks this offseason.

Stars Missing From Day One of Voluntary Workouts - There were a couple of notable names missing from the team's first day of voluntary workouts on Monday, but it sounds like it will be a short absence.

At this point, the Patriots have seven picks to work with when the party gets started on April 27.

"What I would say is, I mean, I'd say we're honored and humbled to be extended the invitation to the White House", Nick Caserio said Tuesday.

This day is also important because another important moment in Patriots history happened on this exact date 17 years ago in the 2000 NFL Draft, when the Pats made a decision to take a quarterback in the sixth round.

"In other words, all the stuff about Cleveland and Garoppolo, they should be trying to trade for him".
