Cornerback Malcolm Butler has agreed a five-year deal worth more than $61m with the Tennessee Titans, according to reports.
The 28-year-old, who spent the past four seasons with the New England Patriots, is also reported to receive $30m guaranteed.
Butler's move to Tennessee will reunite him with former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan, general manager Jon Robinson and first-year head coach Mike Vrabel.
He has eight interceptions and four forced fumbles in 59 career regular-season games (48 starts) since making the Patriots as an undrafted free agent from West Alabama in 2014.
Butler was stunningly benched for the Super Bowl LI loss to the Philadelphia Eagles but will be best remembered in New England for his game-saving interception of Seattle's Russell Wilson in Super Bowl XLIX
