RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After signing a two-year deal with the Saints this offseason, Butler will likely miss all of the 2013 season with a torn ACL.

2011

Developing young pass-rusher could start to make an impact in the OLB rotation this season, but he's a lonmg way from being a viable IDP play.

2010

Butler managed three sacks as a rookie last season, but he'll be hard-pressed to do much better stuck behind DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer on the Cowboys' OLB depth chart.
