Victor Butler leaves Saints without contract

For a change, the Butler didn’t do it.

Specifically, free-agent linebacker Victor Butler didn’t sign a contract with the Saints.  According to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Butler concluded his visit to Louisiana without becoming a member of the local NFL team.

Per Holder, Butler will be visiting the Browns on Monday.  Last week, the Browns outbid the Saints for the services of linebacker Paul Kruger.

Butler also has visited the Steelers.

The Saints are in the process of retooling their defensive personnel to accommodate the switch to a 3-4 defense.

    I don’t get why all these teams are bringing this guy in. He barely made it on the field for the Cowgirls, a team with injuries throughout its LB corp, and he only got 25 tackles and 3 sacks. Those types of numbers aren’t really staggering and as a GM you’d be foolish to sign this guy to starter money. Special teams guy? Definately. Starter? Not unless you’re desperate.

    Oh well, would’ve been a nice pick up for the Black and Gold. But his leaving w/o a deal and heading to desparate Cleveland means that he’ll almost definitely sign with them because they’re gonna grossly over pay him.
