- Nakia Hogan reports that Butler receives a two-year deal from the Saints.
He recently met with the Browns and Eagles, but left both visits without a contract.
Butler, 25, spent last season with Rob Ryan in Dallas, so this move makes a lot of sense now that Ryan has taken over as the Saints defensive coordinator. New Orleans is also in need of an outside linebacker for their new 3-4 defense and Pro Football Focus had Butler rated as the No. 7 player at this position last year.
We had Butler listed as the No. 17 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
