The #Saints are signing former #Cowboys LB Victor Butler, per @AdamSchefter.


Excellent signing. Will fit in great with our system. Makes me feel a little bit more easy about our OLB position. That's not to say that we will still not address it in the first round if the right guy is there. But at least we aren't in desperation mode...like we are at LT.

Yes yes yes. Very happy about this one! Will provide good depth and could maybe even become a starter.

Interested in the financials. I'm glad the Saints didn't cave and let him go on other visits and realize he wasn't worth as much as he thought.

Maybe you missed it, but he left NO without a contract and went to both Cleveland and Philly Wink Came back likely because he knew this was a playoff team easily (barring last season of course for obvious reasons).

No thats exactly what I was referring to. Those same reports were saying Butler was asking for more money than anyone was offering which is why he went on so many visits. I'm glad we didn't cave when he was on his visit and that we let him go on to the Eagles and Browns to see that he wasn't getting the money he wanted and the Saints were the bet spot for him.

Depending on the money, he should provide some solid depth.

Hes terrible against the run. Absolutely terrible. But he can provide good pass rush.

I'll take your word for it but then again some guys just need a shot. Butler needs to become a more compete football player and hopefully he can do that in New Orleans.

Starting and coming off the bench in passing situations is two completely different mindsets.
