Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason, and given how the Super Bowl played out (Butler was shockingly benched just before kickoff and the Patriots still haven't explained why), he's not expected to return to New England. Now, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is working on bringing Butler to Houston. In the days following Super Bowl LII, which Butler watched from the sidelines as the Patriots' defense surrendered 41 points to the Eagles, Hopkins used both Instagram and Twitter to court Butler. First, he told Butler on Twitter that there's a spot for him in Houston. And then he Instagrammed a Photoshopped image of Butler wearing a Texans uniform.
