PRO: The Titans entered the 2018 offseason looking to add more experience to their secondary. The club found just that when it signed two-time Super Bowl Champion and two-time Pro Bowler Malcolm Butler as an unrestricted free agent on March 16, 2018. The 5-foot-11-inch, 190-pounder arrived in Tennessee having collected nine total interceptions and 56 passes defensed in four seasons (2014-17) with the New England Patriots. Butler originally entered the league as a rookie free agent out of West Alabama.

• Butler is a two-time Super Bowl champion, having captured the title with the New England Patriots in 2014 and 2016.
• In 2018, Butler led the Titans with 13 passes defensed and was second on the team with three interceptions in his first season with the Titans.

• In 2015, Butler made his first career Pro Bowl after posting 72 tackles, two interceptions and 15 passes defensed.
• As a rookie free agent in 2014, Butler was involved in one of the most clutch plays in Super Bowl history. With 26 seconds left in Super Bowl XLIX, he intercepted a pass intended for Ricardo Lockette at the goal line, preventing a go-ahead touchdown by the Seattle Seahawks, and sealing the Patriots' championship victory.

• In February 2017, the production company Narrative Capital acquired the rights to the story of Butler for a film tentatively titled "The Secondary."
• Following Butler's crucial goal line interception to seal Super Bowl XLIX, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who received a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado as part of his Super Bowl XLIX MVP Award, requested Chevrolet award the truck directly to Butler.
