Patriots Place Second-Round Tender On DT Adam Butler

The Patriots are making (somewhat) of a commitment to defensive tackle Adam Butler. ESPN’s Mike Reiss reports (via Twitter) that the team has placed a second-round tender on the 25-year-old.

The move ensures that if any team signs Butler to an offer sheet and the Patriots decline to match, they’d get that team’s second-round pick in return.

The former Vanderbilt standout has spent his entire three-year career with New England, and he won a Super Bowl championship during his second year in the NFL. Butler hasn’t missed a regular season game since entering the league, and he set career-highs in tackles (26) and sacks (six) last season.

      Patriots reportedly out on Brady.
      Bears and Chargers are finalists.

      Patriots looking at Foles and Winston.

      Philip Rivers to Carolina.

      Brady to Chargers looking like near lock, at the moment.

      Bridgewater agreed to as the backup plan for Bears if Brady picks Chargers.

      Winston may return to Bucs, but no clear evidence at the moment. Dolphins also logical option for the former 1st overall pick.

        You’re an idiot, reportedly by who? You? You jack ass??? You don’t know a damn thing shut up. If you think it’s going to happen, that’s one thing, don’t act like you have some inside info. Unless your name is Gisele, you aint no insider!
