Despite no big payday from Patriots, Butler focused for 2017

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) There was a time this offseason when it was unclear whether Malcolm Butler would be wearing a Patriots jersey when 2017 training camp began.

Yet there he was as New England opened camp Thursday, taking the field to the cheers of an overflow crowd as a two-time Super Bowl champion - member of a defense that returns 10 starters to one of the league's stingiest units in 2016.

He said later that he woke up for camp thinking about his humble beginnings as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama in 2014.
