Default Victor Butler!!!

I read yesterday about the Steelers possibly targeting Victor Butler. Butler is an unrestricted free agent from Dallas. Has anybody heard or read anything regarding Butler or any other FA that we maybe looking at here on the near future?

He is a backup LB. Stuck behind Spencer & Ware, hence reason for limited playing time.
Might not bs a bad sign.

just curious, where did you hear or read the Steelers were interested in Victor Butler?

Jets targeting Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker Victor Butler

New York Daily News 3/11/2013

The Jets aren’t expected to make a big splash when free agency officially starts on Tuesday, but new general manager John Idzik hopes to make some smart economic signings to fill areas of need for a team that missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

The Daily News has learned that the Jets are targeting Cowboys outside linebacker Victor Butler to fill one of those needs. Gang Green released outside linebacker Calvin Pace a few weeks ago and unrestricted free agent Bryan Thomas isn’t expected to re-sign with the team. The Jets could go in a number of directions with the No. 9 overall pick in next month’s draft, including an outside pass rusher. Butler’s skill-set falls in line with what the Jets need with the loss of Pace and Thomas.

The 6-2, 245-pound Butler, the Cowboys’ fourth-round pick in 2009, has been a backup in Dallas. He had 21 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles playing for Rex Ryan’s brother, Rob, last season.
Butler, who has 11 sacks in four seasons, will turn 26 this summer.

I can t remember what site I read it on. But as soon as I read it I started to do a little research....Butler is 26yrs old and has sat behind Spencer & Ware. He is looking for a starting gig. This guy might be someone the Steelers are seriously looking at as he will be a 2nd tier FA which means he could come cheap with a lot of upside!!!
