The question just keeps coming Mike White Jersey Cowboys , and Malcolm Butler still has the same answer.

No, the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback does not know why Patriots coach Bill Belichick benched him at the Super Bowl in February .

Butler said Sunday he never got an explanation for being benched in the Super Bowl after starting 15 games during the regular season and two playoff games. He came off the bench to seal New England's Super Bowl victory in 2015 with an interception as a rookie, and he started the Patriots' overtime win over Atlanta for a second Super Bowl ring a year ago.

"Coach's decision," Butler said.

For his part, Belichick has never really explained why Butler was benched either . Belichick dodged questions again when the Patriots opened training camp this week, focusing only on this season.

Butler didn't hang around either. He left the Patriots in March, signing a five-year deal with more than $30 million guaranteed with the Tennessee Titans. The move allowed Butler to rejoin former New England cornerback Logan Ryan, who signed with Tennessee in March 2017. The memory of being benched is driving Butler with his new team.

"I'm on fire I can tell you that," Butler said. "But I'm past that. I'm a Tennessee Titan, and I'm just ready to ball for the Titans."

When the Titans visited with Butler in free agency Da'Ron Payne Jersey Elite , new head coach Mike Vrabel told the cornerback to keep approaching his job every day like the undrafted rookie he once was.

"He's close to doing that all the time," Vrabel said. "There's a time or two that he takes a play off, and I've got to remind him, but he is just a competitive player, and I admire that about him. He fights to finish."

Watching Butler through the first four days of training camp, it's safe to say the man who watched the Patriots lose the Super Bowl from the sideline may be even more motivated with his newest team. Butler chased down wide receiver Corey Davis after being beaten to punch the ball loose at the 2-yard line.

Butler set the tone not only for himself but the rest of the team on the opening day of camp during 1-on-1 drills against wide receivers. Butler went up against Davis, the fifth overall pick in 2017 and the first receiver selected in that draft, and intercepted Marcus Mariota's pass. Butler then punted the ball in the air , yelling he was showing everyone how he would earn his money.

That interception followed by the punt didn't come at the spur of the moment either.

"I think I planned that the day I signed my contract," Butler said. "So just a little fired up. Get everybody going Packers Josh Jackson Jersey , show my attitude, my intensity, what I bring and wasn't disrespect to the offense or anything like that. I'm just being me."

Butler has nine career interceptions with 56 passes defended while with New England. He joins a Titans defense that ranked 22nd in the NFL last season with 12 interceptions 鈥?eight by All-Pro safety Kevin Byard. Both Ryan and Adoree Jackson, who started every game last season as a rookie, are going into their second seasons.

The Titans host the Patriots on Nov. 11, giving Butler a chance to face his old team and coach this season.

For now, the cornerback who played at West Alabama has been very visible every day at camp whether he's pulling in interceptions or knocking balls out to break up catches. Butler said actions speak louder than words.

"Just like I tell the young guys, a play a day (will) keep the coach away," Butler said.

Notes: Vrabel said LB Brian Orakpo, who left practice after banging his shoulder against TE Luke Stocker on Friday Carlton Davis Jersey Buccaneers , likely will be out a week. Vrabel had no update on rookie LB Rashaan Evans, the No. 22 pick overall, who left early Saturday. Davis was given the day off for rest.

Five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh officially was released Wednesday by the Miami Dolphins at the start of free agency, and the team made official the trades to acquire defensive end Robert Quinn and send Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns.

Miami also announced the release of tight end Julius Thomas, which had been expected. The Dolphins decided to keep right tackle Ja'Wuan James, which guarantees him $9.34 million in 2018.

Restructured contracts for quarterback Ryan Tannehill and Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones cleared $18 million in cap space. The Dolphins converted $16.7 million of Tannehill's 2018 salary to bonus pay, underscoring their long-term investment in him, and converted $9.4 million of Jones' salary this year to bonus pay.

Suh was halfway through the $114 million, six-year deal he signed when he joined the Dolphins in 2015. Along with the incentive of creating $17 million in cap space this year, the move was widely seen as part of coach Adam Gase's attempt to improve the locker room culture following a 6-10 season.

Suh's standoffish personality raised questions about his leadership Authentic Customized Packers Jerseys , and he has never been on a team that won a playoff game.

Landry went to the Browns for a fourth-round draft pick this year and a seventh-rounder in 2019. Quinn was acquired from the Los Angeles Rams for a fourth-round pick, and the teams swapped sixth-round choices.

Thomas was a disappointment in his lone season with Miami, catching 41 passes for 388 yards and three scores.

Miami tendered three exclusive rights free agents: center Jake Brendel, linebacker Mike Hull and defensive back Jordan Lucas. The team declined to tender offensive lineman Anthony Steen, linebacker Neville Hewitt, quarterback David Fales or running back De'Veon Smith, making them free to negotiate with any team.
