Malcolm Butler’s mysterious Super Bowl absence took a turn on Monday when former Patriot Brandon Browner indicated the benching was the result of allegedly missing curfew and possession of marijuana. Butler responded to those reports by releasing a lengthy statement in which he basically says goodbye to the Patriots organization and fans, before refuting all allegations.

According to Butler, he was with his family every night:

During my four year career with the Patriots I have always given it everything I have to play at a high level, and would never do anything t hurt my teams’ chances of winning a game, including this year’s Super Bowl where I visited with my family every night. During Super Bowl week I never attended any concert, missed curfew, or participated in any of the ridiculous activities being reported. They are not only false, but hurtful, to me and my family. Although I wish I could have contributed more to help my team win, I have to get ready for the next opportunity. Moving forward I will do what I have always done to work hard, and prepare for next season to be the best I can be on and off the field.

For what it’s worth, a good number of Patriots, including Tom Brady, liked and commented on Malcolm’s statement:
