    Butler will probably be gone.

    It just makes complete Titan sense, to have this great core of defensive players, then let two walk in free agency and completely decimate the secondary. Incoming 5-11 season next year.

    You got the years mixed up. He made 6 mil last year, he’s due 13mil this year, and another $13 mil in 20. So he essentially made 19mil for 16.5gms if we are counting the last 8gms from last year when he decided to show up and this year. IDK, IMO it hasn’t been worth it. Like I said earlier he probably does come back but I just threw out a potential option. It’ll be interesting to see how this off season shakes out in terms of what the plan is with QB,FA’s, and resigning players

    im unsure why we would start cutting players cuz we arent getting some perceived "value"... this is TN... we have to overpay for good players to get them to come here and we have tons of space to do it cuz very few of our players make it to their 2nd contract. if we were close on the cap or something we would definitely possibly cut him but we arent. letting talent walk out the door due to feelings about what they should/shouldnt be paid is a recipe for failure imo

    we have many needs to fill and finding someone to just plug in and replace butler isnt an easy task

    Whatever the numbers are hes not a bad player and we dont need the cap space

    I wouldn't be looking to add to our shopping list this offseason. We need a QB, maybe 2 RB's, a TE, maybe a center, and if we cut Butler 2 CBs. FA is usually a good chance to add 2-3 pieces, and the draft the same.

    If cap space was an issue then yes dump the high dollar contract, but its not an issue.

    I’m not advocating for Butler to get cut, i feel like that is getting lost in all this. For the amount of money he's getting paid he should be playing like #1 cb not just on this team but around the league. That doesn’t mean I’m saying he sucks. I get what your saying regarding the small market and over paying but because we got the room to absorb his cap hit doesn't mean we can negate his play so far. I was hoping for better play out of him. Next year is going to be a big year for him considering the money he's going to be making.

    Hate to hear this, he was having a pretty solid year and he is in his prime.

    I feel like the people have unrealistic expectations here.

    This is a league where you can complete 67% of your passes and be considered a bad quarterback. This is a league where Corey Davis gets 900 yards in his 2nd year and people argue that he is a bust.

    Everything in the rules is geared towards offense. If the wide receiver runs a good route and the quarterback makes a good throw, it is going to be a catch no matter what the CB does. The standard of success for a CB is occasionally making a play.

    I know Butler got torched the first few games last year, but since then, he is one of the better CB's in the league. I think coaches and his peers would put him in that category.

    Wish we could keep Butler , he’s scrappy but his salary is rich . I really like him but he is certainly replaceable.
