Dion Lewis agrees to 4-year deal with Tennessee Titans

Dion Lewis agrees to 4-year deal with Tennessee Titans

They committed $61 million ($30M guaranteed) over five years, a rather large investment considering Butler's benching at the Super Bowl and his up-and-down performance in 2017.

The signing fills the hole left after the release of Demarco Murray as well keeps Lewis from signing with Indianapolis who reportedly had interest.

Lewis was featured in a crowded Patriots backfield but was unlikely to sign a lucrative deal should he chosen to stay in New England.

Lewis' best season came in 2017 when he started eight regular season games for the Patriots and rushed for 896 yards on 180 carries (5.0 yards per carry average) with six touchdowns.

The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a four-year contract with free agent running back Dion Lewis. One figures the Patriots will take a long look at this year's draft class, which is considered deep.

Packers make two big moves: Signing Jimmy Graham and releasing Jordy Nelson
The move is one of two big moves for the Packers Tuesday, as they released former Pro Bowl wide receiver Jordy Nelson as well. The Packers ranked third in red-zone conversion percentage a year ago , even with Aaron Rodgers injured for half the season.

The Titans declined to comment because free agency does not begin until Wednesday afternoon.

Of course, he will always be part of Patriots' lore due to his game-saving interception of Seattle's Russell Wilson in Super Bowl XLIX following the 2014 season.

The 28-year-old Butler, a MS native, went from unknown to hero in a matter of months - his now-iconic goal-line interception of the Seahawks' Russell Wilson to seal Super Bowl XLIX for New England is one of the best postseason plays in National Football League history. Three years later, he saw exactly one snap as his team was picked apart by Nick Foles in a 41-33 Super Bowl 52 defeat.

Likewise from the player's perspective; in this case, Lewis has already thanked the Patriots for believing in him when most other teams didn't in 2015.
