Kristian: Saints end visit with LB Butler, no contract offered

Well, a league source tells me that the Saints and LB Victor Butler had their visit, and he left town without a deal. I'm honestly a little surprised. 

Butler worked under Rob Ryan for two years when they were both in Dallas.  The Saints have a real need in the OLB area.  He would also bring some much-needed pass-rushing skills to the Saints defense.  And, even though he hasn't made his chops in the NFL yet, he's just 25, the perfect age for development.

Butler has visited a number of teams so far without being able to work out a deal.  His asking price may be a little high.  The Saints may just be not willing to spend what he's asking, right now.

Of course, never say never...it *could* come back around, it's not a done deal.  Just because he left town without a contract doesn't mean he won't eventually wear the Black and Gold.  Stay tuned.

I Agree, His Asking Price Was Probably Too High...
I'd like to see Victor Butler in a Saints uniform, but I'd even more like to see Nnamdi Asomugha in a black and gold uniform. If he could return to his previous form from back in Oakland (when Rob Ryan was DC), we could have an elite corner on our hands. Paired with Keenan Lewis, this could make Jabari Greer expendable, much as I like the guy. It will be an interesting draft and off-season for sure for the Saints. Here's to a great season in 2013! WHO DAT?!

Never heard of the guy. Get some good players.

Why do some people feel Asomugha is better than Greer? I think Greer is a better defender than Asomugha because you know what you have in Greer a guy that's going to compete and play hard for you. If I'm going to let someone go it would be P.Rob he gets beat all the time.
