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.
