No reason Butler should not make the team. He's big, smart, runs good routes and has the confidence / swag to get to his potential ceiling faster. He can't do much about speed but he can get a lot stronger in the weight room and probably already has the past few months.

So I guess Lil' Jordan makes the practice squad?

Cobbs & Butler would be my picks. Matthews hasn't impressed me so far, but Cobbs definitely has. Butler isn't gonna make the P.S. cause some WR needy team will grab him with a quickness & we can't afford to lose his potential.

Possibly ...

Needs to show a ton more on Friday Night. The guys in front of him aren't doing him any favors at practice.

Yup. Butler is getting far too much praise from the sports networks to clear to the practice squad. At this point he makes the 53.

Re: Strief: Saints "hit the lottery" with rookie receiver Butler

When we signed Butler I started watching some of his college tape and boy was I impressed. What we’ve seen from training camp only convinced me further that there’s real potential there. He may not be fast, but he gets open and makes the tough catches a la Anquan Boldin.

Butlerís my man. Went to grad school at NAU in the 70ís. Spent 3 years trying to get oxygen out of thin air at 9k ft. Would be great to see him make a career ala Colson in LA.
