New England Patriots Rumors You Need to Know

Malcolm Butler will remain a member of the New England Patriots.

With rumors surfacing about Butler potentially being traded - likely due to Stephon Gilmore's signing - they'll likely continue to swirl around the superstar until he either signs a long-term deal or finds a new home via trade.

There's still a strong possibility that New England could trade Butler during the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft. Butler was reportedly frustrated with the Patriots after they signed corner Stephon Gilmore to a five-year, $65 million deal on the first day of National Football League free agency, which prompted his agent to find potential suitors on the trade market.

Butler earned his first Pro Bowl invitation following the 2015 season.

The Saints acquired the 32 and final pick of round one from the Patriots in the Brandin Cooks deal. The move ensured that New England would receive a first-round pick as compensation if Butler signed an offer sheet with another team and the Patriots chose not to match. The Patriots, having just won the Super Bowl and arguably free agency, don't have many holes to fill. There's also a decent chance they make a trade before the draft in hopes of getting back into Day 1.

Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio was asked several times about Butler at his pre-draft news conference on Tuesday, but declined to tip his hand. The two teams have been in discussion for over a month on ways to get Butler to New Orleans.

So look to the offensive line, the defensive front seven, and at strong safety as the Patriots make their picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
