Wednesday, after his three-week practice window ended, the Saints decided to not activate Victor Butler, according to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Butler started practicing on Nov. 19, but apparently wasn’t ready to contribute.

Butler was injured in June during OTAs, and at the time it seemed it was a crushing blow for a team lacking pass-rush options. He was brought in from Dallas, where he backed up DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer and was familiar with coordinator Rob Ryan’s system.

Oh well, I hope everyone else stays healthy.

At least we'll have good OLB competition in 2014.

Re: Saints will not activate Victor Butler from PUP

I think our d-line and linebackers gelling again this past weekend put this in motion. Also, getting Vaccarro and Harper back helped. Doesn't make sense to put a guy out there just to get more hurt and preventing him from playing next season when other factors are starting to gel.

I never thought he'd make it back this season anyway, so I was shocked he was coming off pup anyway.

Makes me think we might not draft an OLB in the first round since we'll get this guy back.

I think that we still need some depth though. It is a pretty good LB class coming out.

We definitely need depth and if someone like Kyle Van Noy is still there when we pick then definitely pull the trigger... But with Butler we're essentially getting a new player next season who already knows the defense. I think our defense hasn't begun to scratch the surface of where it could be when we have all the players we need at every position.
