Malcolm Butler plans to sit out Patriots' OTAs
New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler has "no intention" of participating in the team's voluntary workouts, CSN New England reports.
Butler signed his restricted free agent tender on Tuesday but is still waiting out a potential trade to the New Orleans Saints. Reports have had talks as remaining open. The saga should be settled by the end of the draft.
Butler would upgrade a New Orleans secondary that was third-worst in the NFL last season in schedule-adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.
