NFL Trade Rumors:
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News has learned that the Jets are targeting free agent OLB Victor Butler.
Butler, 25, is starting to generate some buzz in recent weeks as it’s beginning to look increasing unlikely that the Cowboys will be able to retain him.
The Jets parted ways with Calvin Pace a few weeks ago and could clearly use some help at outside linebacker. Mehta adds that the Jets are not expected to retain Bryan Thomas.
Despite only playing 300 snaps for the Cowboys defense last year, Pro Football Focus gave him very solid ratings. It will be interesting to see what kind of market develops for Butler in the coming days and how aggressive the Jets are in trying to get him under contract at the start of free agency.
We have him listed as the No. 72 best available player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
