New York Jets Rumors: Idzik to Target Victor Butler

US PRESSWIRE

The New York Jets are poised to make a quiet entry into free agency.

According to Manish Mehta, the New York Jets are targeting OLB Victor Butler of the Dallas Cowboys for free agency. Butler would replace Calvin Pace/Bryan Thomas at OLB, and, as of right now, would line up opposite of Garrett McIntyre.

As Mehta states, the Jets will likely not make a splash in free agency, but will quietly try to fill some of the many holes on the roster with cheap alternatives. In that sense, Butler would be a great addition to the team. He has performed well in limited time under Rob Ryan, so he is familiar with a similar system to that of Rex Ryan. He is 25 years old, and had 21 tackles, three sacks, and two forced fumbles last season. Butler is primarily a pass rushing OLB, which would be a sight for sore eyes on a team that hasn't had a viable rush LB in quite some time.

Butler would likely come cheap, and although an exact price is difficult to pinpoint, my guess is approximately $2-$3 million per year.
