Butler is most well known for grabbing the goal-line interception that won the New England Patriots their fourth Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks. It was perhaps the most perplexing play call in the history of the Super Bowl. The Seahawks were on the one yard line with a chance to put the game away, when quarterback Russell Wilson threw the ball on a quick route that was intercepted by Butler.
He was then sidelined by Bill Belichick during their Super Bowl loss to the Eagles, leading Philadelphia to put up over 50 points and defeat the Patriots. The two-time Super Bowl champion was traded to Tennessee after that benching, where he spent three seasons.
Butler is now a member of the Cardinals on a reported one year deal.
