He added: "I appreciate the question, but it would be a much longer discussion". He was clearly emotional beforehand and expressed those feelings to ESPN's Mike Reiss afterwards.
Butler saw some playing time on special teams, but that was the extent of his playing time as Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe and Johnson Bademosi saw almost all the playing time at corner for the Patriots.
