After making the play of a lifetime, Malcolm Butler is having the life of a lifetime all of a sudden.

For a guy who was a total unknown a week and a half ago, the Patriots cornerback is on a roll, including presenting an award at the Grammys last night with teammate Julian Edelman.

I’ve been coming down,” Butler said, via Nancy Dillon of the New York Daily News. “I’ve been coming down lately, but coming back here brought me back up.

“But I’m managing it well. You gotta get over that. I don’t want one play to define me as a player, so back to work, sooner or later.”

The likelihood is, his game-clinching interception in Super Bowl XLIX will be the biggest play Butler will ever make.

So cashing in at the moment — from his new truck to his Las Vegas parties — is just good business for a guy who was at the right place at the right time.
