$Signed a four-year, $8.4 million contract with the Panthers in May of 2016.
Year 5 option declined
DTCarolina Panthers
May 2, 2019
The Panthers declined to exercise the fifth-year option on Butler's contract, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
That means the 2016 first-rounder will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year. Arguably the Panthers' worst draft pick in the Dave Gettleman era and a player who was supposed to lift a Carolina defense that had just let Josh Norman walk in free agency, Butler has accrued just 45 tackles and two sacks through three seasons despite playing alongside some talented teammates.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
The Panthers' first-round pick this year, Butler joins a deep and talented defensive front where he should immediately learn while backing up Pro-Bowler Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei. That being said, given Butler's great combination of size and athleticism, the Louisiana Tech product figures to earn more playing time as the season unfolds, particularly if Lotulelei's foot soreness resurfaces.
