Victor Butler's deal with the Saints is for 2yrs, but can void down to 1 yr based on playing time and production

Re: Saints come to terms with Victor Butler(pg.5 update)

Saints signed OLB Victor Butler to a two-year contract.

Butler, 25, has 11 career sacks and four forced fumbles across four seasons, though he's only played 803 career snaps, per Pro Football Focus. The typical starting 3-4 rush linebacker plays 900-1,000 snaps. While Butler is considered a weak run defender, he has edge speed the Saints desperately need. He also played for new New Orleans defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Dallas last year. Butler will compete for a starting job with Junior Galette, Will Smith, Martez Wilson, and whomever the Saints add in April's draft. We like Butler's chances of at least earning a significant role in sub-packages -- all-out pass-rush downs.

Very interesting stat.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Saints come to terms with Victor Butler(pg.5 update)

I think we are all feeling pretty good about this. It looks as If they were able to get Butler on their financial terms. Can't wait to see what the contract is officially. Now does that switch their draft focus? The left tackle position still needs to be answered. Although, I would not mind seeing if Brown can play a full season. The defensive line could also use some attention, and safety as well.

Very good day in Who Dat nation.

I usually don't care for smartass responses, but this one made my laugh for some reason.
