New, comments

The Arizona Cardinals need help at wide receiver and are looking at a guy who had a big game against them in 2017.

One thing that you see happen often in free agency is an under the radar type player get signed by a team that the year before he put up a big game against.

That may be the case with Brice Butler, who the Arizona Cardinals are bringing in on a free agent visit.

Butler (27), a five-year veteran with the Oakland Raider (2) and Dallas Cowboys (3), has 73 catches for 1133 yards and eight touchdowns in his career.

Last season with Dallas, on a team starving for a second wideout to emerge, Butler was mostly invisible... Except against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football.

In his best statistical game of the season, Butler had two catches for 90 yards and a touchdown.

The rest of the season Butler had 13 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns.

He is a nice, 6-3 220lbs target, with big play ability, but he has struggled for years with consistency.

However, he has improved every year as a blocker, according to Pro Football Focus, and is coming off a career high in yards, second highest in yards per reception and tied for highest in touchdowns with three. He could be a very nice third wide receiver with low-end number two potential.

He also would likely cost the veteran’s minimum.

Does that entice you?
