Victor Butler leaves NOLA without contract

Cowboys free-agent linebacker Victor Butler wrapped up his two-day visit with the New Orleans Saints on Friday without a contract, according to a source. It's the second visit Butler finished during free agency without a contract as he originally visited with Pittsburgh last week.

This doesn't necessarily mean the door has closed on Butler with the Saints, but it does open the door for other teams to pursue Butler. Butler will visit with the Browns on Monday, according to a source. The Browns beat out the Saints earlier in free agency as Cleveland outbid New Orleans to land highly sought linebacker Paul Kruger.

Saints Coach Sean Payton said outside linebacker was one of the major question mark positions on the roster and the team is looking to upgrade at that spot.

Re: Victor Butler leaves NOLA without contract

Yeah.....he must be askin for too much. He left the Steelers after 2-3 days of visiting too and left empty handed. His next visit is the Browns from what I saw on twitter.....if he leaves there without a deal then he's definitely asking for too much.

Re: Victor Butler leaves NOLA without contract

If he is asking for too much the browns will over pay for him, they have enough money and not enough sense

Id hope he would stay in new orleans with a contract but if hes asking too much for a guy with 11 career sacks then we were right not to sign him, if hes in our price range i would hope it gets done

More then likely he is overvaluing himself. Let someone else over pay for him.

He wasn't all that anyway. We are trying to replace scrubs with starters, not replace scrubs with slightly less scrubby scrubs.
Bring in Urlacker.
