His benching has been somewhat of a mystery and Butler’s story sheds his insights into the situation.
Just spoke with Malcolm Butler on a number of topics, including his Super Bowl benching. He hasn’t spoken with Bill Belichick since they departed Minnesota but surmised why he didn’t play that night: pic.twitter.com/ccCsoCLnLj

Even though Butler has not spoken with head coach Bill Belichick since the Super Bowl loss in Minnesota, it appears he harbors no ill feelings against the Patriots organization.
Like Butler says, sometimes it is just best to move on an focus on the present. He has a bright future ahead of him and will now take his talents to Tennessee.
Apparently in good standing with at least one of his former teammates, quarterback Tom Brady recently paid tribute to Butler on his Instagram.
