Unsure if Saints have real interest though...

Free agent OLB Victor Butler left his Steelers visit without a contract.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune has been on top of Butler's whereabouts the last couple of days. Butler reportedly wants to join the Saints, but it's unclear if they'll bring him in for a visit

Quote:
A possible New Orleans Saints outside linebacker target remains on the open market as Cowboys free-agent linebacker Victor Butler left his visit with the Steelers on Friday without a contract, according to a source.

On Thursday, a source said the Saints would be a top target for Butler if the linebacker left Pittsburgh without a contract.

The Saints are certainly looking for outside linebackers for their new 3-4 defensive scheme and Butler would fit the bill. Butler played under Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan the last two seasons in Dallas and would have a firm grasp of the system in New Orleans.

On a side note, freshly signed cornerback Keenan Lewis played with Butler during their college days at Oregon State making New Orleans a more intriguing landing spot for Butler.

My thoughts exactly, but here how I see it...

If Butler wants to be here then no one should know better than Rob Ryan if he's worth it so if RR ain't banging the table to land him that should tell us something. Then again if the Saints land him it also says that RR sees potential in him.

win, win for us!
