We heard last week that free agent wide receiver Brice Butler has a few visits set up and he’s making one of them on Monday.

Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports that Butler is visiting with the Cardinals. The Seahawks, Bears and Jaguars are the other teams slated for meetings with Butler as he tries to find a new home for the 2018 season.

Butler spent the last three seasons with the Cowboys and caught 43 passes for 794 yards and six touchdowns. He opened his career as a Raiders seventh-round pick in 2013 and set a career high with 317 yards last season.

The Cardinals saw John Brown and Jaron Brown leave as free agents last month, leaving Larry Fitzgerald, J.J. Nelson and Chad Williams at the top of a thin receiving group.

  1. This is what Butler wanted. He talked himself out of Dallas well before he appeared on tv early this off season, by making it about himself rather than the team. I wonder how he feels now?

  2. Despite what the other expert commentators posted–Brice is a vastly improved player from when he arrived in Dallas. Go back and look at the few opportunities he was given last year and the result. He got a bit left out in Dallas as the left O line got weakened, the game plans changed, and Dallas forever trying to force the ball to Dez. I for one, would be happy if Dez left. He is not the turd he is made out to be, but IT AINT WORKING IN DALLAS FOR HIM ANYMORE. Even the casual fan can see it. He is talked about as elite, still makes 4-5 plays a year where he looks like a man playing among boys, but its not working, and hasnt been, even while Romo was still there. Let some other guys play. Take Terence Williams with you when you go as well. Keep this guy.

  3. Oh, the irony of that first comment. If you’re going to accuse someone of being, “not to bright” you should at least know the correct use of to/too.

  4. Butler commented on social media, something to the effect of ‘it should be if I want to come back’ relating to a question if Dallas should bring Butler back next year. Butler is learning that decisions is up to the team first. You can’t write your own contract.

    From my observations on and off the field, he think’s he’s the next Antonio Brown. Problem is, he couldn’t replace Terrance Williams on the depth chart. He’s doing alright for a 7th round guy, but he’s basically an insurance policy for your 5-7th round picks this year if they get injured and you need a guy. Unfortunately for him, guys with his talent level are a dime a dozen.

  5. Butler is a guy who made some big plays and had lots of big chunk catches. It was the gimme drops that killed me as a Dallas fan. He just drops a lot of balls that are right on target and could go for much more. Maybe he was underutilized as a deep threat, but I’d take TWill over Butler 99 times out of 99.
