Operator for Patriots star cornerback is attempting to get his customer out of New England CBSSportscom

“Thing might have just gotten slightly more awkward between the Patriots and Malcolm Butler.
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has reported that Butleru2019s agent, Derek Simpson, is now contacting other teams and asking them to sign his client. The catch here is that Butler is a restricted free agent who was given a first-round tender, which means that if heu2019s signed by another team, that team would have to give a first-round pick to the Patriots.
La Canfora has reported that the Patriots would actually be OK if Butler were to sign with someone else because that would give New England a first-round pick in this yearu2019s draft. Currently, the Patriots donu2019t have a first-round pick because they traded it away in the deal for Saints receiver Brandin Cooks.
Butler is having his agent look around because the corner doesnu2019t feel like heu2019s going to be paid what heu2019s worth in New England. According to La Canfora, the 27-year-old is looking for u201cStephon Gilmoreu201d money, which means Butler wants a new deal that will pay him roughly $13 million to $14 million per year.”
