Malcolm Butler will be an unrestricted free agent in March and is already getting recruiting pitches from a couple of players.

After the Patriots benched him for the Super Bowl, Butler received unofficial offers from DeAndre Hopkins and Pierre Garçon to join them on their respective teams.

“Wusup @Mac_BZ we got a place for you in Houston,” Hopkins tweeted on Monday afternoon.

Hopkins also posted a picture of Butler photoshopped in a Texans uniform on his Instagram on Tuesday:

After Butler posted his statement on his situation with the Patriots on Tuesday, Garçon posted a tweet later that night inviting Butler to join him and former Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on the 49ers:

“Yo yo @Mac_BZ come to The Bay. @49ers we got CAP SPACE, a QB and the best receivers in the division are on your team. You won’t have to worry about the head coach being all up in the videos. All in the way and stuff. One goal in mind over here. #SB53 Let’s Get It #49erFaithful.”
