The Victor Butler Era

11-5 with a road playoff win in Philadelphia.  All in all, not a bad period in Saints history.  Good job, Victor. Best of luck.
Butler was a 2013 free-agent acquisition who previously spent four seasons as a role player with the Cowboys.

Butler was with Dallas from 2009-12 and played almost every game as a backup with two starts.

He spent two seasons in Dallas under defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was in Dallas from 2011-12 before taking the Saints job. Butler signed a two-year contract with the Saints, with a reported $750,000 signing bonus.

Butler was expected to ease the transition and possibly earn his first starting job as Ryan transitioned the Saints from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4. However, that never materialized after Butler tore his ACL in the final week of OTAs last summer.
