The New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints are still haggling over compensation in a potential trade form cornerback Malcolm Butler according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
The Saints hold the Nos. 11 and 32 picks in the first round, with the second first-rounder via the Patriots in the Brandin Cooks trade. New Orleans is desperate for defensive back help and would love to have Butler, but this draft is considered strong for cornerbacks, and the Saints may simply opt to use the picks on younger cover men rather than buckling at the Patriots' demands. Butler signed his RFA tender this week but is skipping voluntary workouts in New England. It seems increasingly likely that the former undrafted free agent and Super Bowl hero will spend one more season in a Patriots uniform before cashing in big in free agency next spring.
