RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Butler has become a key cog in the Patriots' secondary as he was on the field for a team-high 98.8 percent of the team's regular-season defensive snaps in 2015. Heading into the campaign, Butler was presented with the challenge of replacing Darrelle Revis, and he more than held his own en route to a Pro Bowl nod, recording 67 tackles and two picks. As the 2016 campaign approaches, he'll remain entrenched as the Patriots' starting left cornerback.
While Butler saw the field for just 16.6 percent of the the Patriots' defensive snaps during the 2014 regular season, he emerged as an unlikely Super Bowl hero in February and now has a chance to earn a starting role in the team's secondary following the departure of last season's top duo at the position, Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner.
