In his rookie season with the Patriots, the Vicksburg High School alum made NFL history with an incredible game-ending interception in Super Bowl XLIX.
He intercepted Russell Wilson's pass at the goal line with 20 seconds left in the game, preventing a go-ahead touchdown from the Seattle Seahawks.
New England won that Super Bowl, 28-24.
Butler was also part of the Patriots' Super Bowl LI 34-28 overtime victory against the Atlanta Falcons.
Butler made headlines following Super Bowl LII after he was benched before kickoff.
The Patriots would go on to lose that game 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles.
