Although the former and the saints are very ambiguous, but cornerback Malcolm – Butler (Malcolm Butler) and eventually the old owner of the New England Patriots signed a tender contract.
According to ESPN reporters, the contract is the first round level price: 2017 season, $ 3.91 million annual salary.
Dan Williams is no longer a member of the Auckland Raiders.
The Raiders cut the 29-year-old defender on Tuesday. He played for the team for 2 seasons.
Williams played for the raid 32 games, starting 26 games, made 1.5 sack. After a strong performance in the 2015 season, he fell last season, coupled with his new season salary will reach 4.5 million US dollars, which he would have been likely to be cut by the team. In his contract is no longer part of the protection of income, the Raiders cut him after no loss.
Williams also suffered from weight last season, which made his situation even more difficult. However, he is not the biggest problem of the raid defensive front, which makes the Raiders in the draft may try to solve this problem.
Although the raid is a team in the rising season, it is easy to forget last season for a long time how defensive their dirty. Williams will not be the last cut veteran.
Signing a bid contract means that Butler and the saints will not sign directly, unless the Patriots do not match the saints offer (if they reported), otherwise they can not expect the saints to send No. 11 sign. But whether Butler will stay in the Patriots is still uncertain.
Now the other team can take the process of restricting the free agent and the patriots talk about the deal.
