Todd Bowles calls Malcolm Butler one of the best CBs in the NFL

-

The New York Jets have been one of the most surprising teams in the NFL this season and they are likely just one win away from making the playoffs for the first time since 2010. They have one of their biggest challenges of the season when they host AFC East rival, the New England Patriots, on Sunday.

First-year head coach Todd Bowles, who is a defensive genius at heart, knows that the Patriots are going to be a tough task. He spoke with Patriots reporters on Tuesday and said that cornerback Malcolm Butler is the one guy they have to watch out for.

“Malcolm is probably one of the best in the league,” Bowles said. “He shows up and takes the best guy.”

Butler came into prominence for the Patriots when he made the game-winning interception against the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl earlier this year. He worked his way up to the starting position this offseason and Bowles believes that it was the best decision they could have made.

“He studies the game. He’s not just a man corner, he’s a zone corner too. He’s feisty. He has very good technique, which is rare,” Bowles said. “He has great hand-eye coordination, he reads the ball, and he accepts all challenges and works at it. I enjoy watching him play.”

Butler has recorded two interceptions and an impressive 15 pass deflections this year. He has also added on 50 tackles, so I think it’s safe to say that Bowles’s comments about him may be warranted.
