The Cardinals worked out free agent tight end Jake Butt this week, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Injuries limited Butt to eight games with the Broncos in four seasons after they made him a fifth-round choice.

Butt injured a hamstring in 2020 that landed him on injured reserve. He played five games, making two catches for 5 yards while serving as a special teams contributor.

He saw action on 211 offensive snaps and 86 on special teams last season.

Butt played three games in 2018 and totaled eight catches for 85 yards.

The Cardinals have Maxx Williams, Darrell Daniels, Ross Travis and Ian Bunting at the position.

  1. this guy is a work horse who has had nothing but bad luck since his last michigan game…he is a warrior on the field when healthy and has came back through two knee injuries i really hope he can have a full healthy season he deserves it

  2. butt gave his all for Michigan and blew out his ACL in a bowl game. It cost him dearly. He was an exciting player in college

  3. Wished Jake had worked out well with the Broncos. He showed a lot of promise and had a showcase of accolades: As a junior, he won the Ozzie Newsome Award. He was selected as a first-team All-American and was named Kwalick–Clark Tight End of the Year in both 2015 and 2016. He won the John Mackey Award given to the top tight end in college football.

    Unfortunately, his last game was in the Orange Bowl for his team and he had suffered nerve damage in his leg. I understand why some college players are reluctant to play in a bowl game when their NFL playing future is at risk.

  4. This guy was always hurt! As I recall, he had a strong college career but ripped a knee in his last game at some Bowl game. He was never the same. Buyer beware.

  5. His career was ruined in a meaningless college post season game. Remember this next time a college senior skips one.
