Butler, 28, wound up going undrafted out of Vanderbilt back in 2017. He later signed a three-year rookie contract with the Patriots and returned to New England on a one-year restricted deal worth $3.27 million for the 2020 season.
From there, Butler signed a two-year contract with the Dolphins last year.
In 2021, Butler appeared in all 17 games for the Dolphins and recorded 17 tackles, two sacks and three pass deflections.
