Three weeks into NFL free agency, Malcolm Butler’s future remains uncertain.

The restricted free-agent cornerback has yet to sign either his first-round tender with the New England Patriots or a contract with another team, and New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton told reporters this week his team would not surrender the No. 11 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to sign Butler to an offer sheet.
