James White, Patriots agree to three-year contract extension

Lengel played in six games with the Patriots in the regular season and all three postseason games, including Super Bowl LI. If the Patriots didn't match, however, they would receive a first-round pick from the signing team, which in the case of the Saints would be the No. 11 overall selection. A trade of Butler before the 2017 NFL Draft would accelerate the compensation by two years, and it would likely provide better draft compensation.

As for the 5-foot-10, 205-pound White, he fills the "passing back" role in the Patriots' offense, which is significant given how often the team throws the football. The front office didn't have much cap space to work with, but they found a way to make a few major moves. Or his new team could franchise him.

Butler signed his restricted free agent tender, which served as the next logical step in the layered process of finding his home for the 2017 season. While NFL teams will select 253 players in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Patriots see just a fraction of those players as worth drafting.

"You're looking at a full composition of a player", Caserio said. Surely, the Pats would receive more than a late third-round pick in a trade for Butler. Reuniting Jason McCourty with his brother could be a cost-effective way to unload Butler and retrieve draft picks in return, if Bill Belichick deems Devin's brother a worthy replacement.
