Malcolm Butler doesn't seem to have any hard feelings toward his head coach Bill Belichick.

He confirmed to the media that he hasn't spoken with Belichick about how things ended the first time when he decided to re-sign with them last month.

In Butler's final game of his first stint with New England, he was infamously benched for Super Bowl LII.

Butler is famous for winning the Super Bowl for the Patriots in 2015 against the Seattle Seahawks. He caught the game-sealing interception with hardly any time left when the Seahawks infamously didn’t run the ball from the one-yard line.

Former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tried to fit a pass to Ricardo Lockette to win the game but Butler read it perfectly.

Butler played two more seasons with the Patriots before signing with the Tennessee Titans in 2018. He played the next three seasons with them before signing with the Arizona Cardinals.

His best season, while he was in Tennessee, came in 2020 when he finished with 100 total tackles (86 solo), plus four interceptions.

He'll now look to help the Patriots' defense be even better in 2022.
