Re: Saints will not activate Victor Butler from PUP

Hagan, you hit the nail on the head, need to work on our coverage with the ILB corps but still have to say Hawthorne is a baller and I think that Reddick will turn into a stud if we develop him properly...I wouldn't mind seeing Kyle Van Noy in black & gold, but Gallette is just playing out of his mind right now and I'm sure Butler will be a welcome addition in 2014.

100% agree with this. I love the way our linebackers can stuff the run but when they have to cover or chase someone they are average at best. I would like to see us add some speed to this position this offseason.

Until then, Harper and Vaccaro will need to continue to play at the hybrid linebacker/safety position.

With Butler coming back next year healthy and the OLB we have now we should be in good shape at OLB's next season. An ILB will be exactly what is needed. I love the thought of OLB making the opposing O think they are coming and an ILB shooting strait up the middle to lay a rb. or qb. flat on their back. Cover skills as you stated is a must. I would like to see another bull-rush DT and a ball-hawking FS. I look forward to a real 3-4 next season.

Don't forget we still have Rufus as an OLB next season, if everything works out were loaded at OLB. Next I hope for a ILB in a 3/4 like a Vaughn Johnson type, a beast.

Well if he can get us at least 3 sacks and about 10 tackles before the playoffs and get in game shape its a plus for us.
