Malcolm Butler’s time in Tennessee is over.

The Titans released the cornerback Tuesday, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Butler was three years into a five-year, $61 million deal.

Butler started every game last season with the Titans and racked up a career-high, by far, 100 total tackles and had four interceptions. He had 201 total tackles over his three seasons with the team, though he missed the second half of the 2019 season with a broken wrist.

The 31-year-old spent his first four years in the league with the New England Patriots, and is best known for his game-sealing interception in Super Bowl XLIX. He is now set to become a free agent.

The decision to drop Butler will save the Titans more than $10 million in salary-cap space.
