Butler's visit has been long awaited.
Jason LaCanfora broke the news via Twitter late last night and our man Larry Holder confirmed.

Can confirm LB Victor Butler will visit the #Saints on Thursday, source says.— Larry Holder (@LarryHolder) March 21, 2013
Well it's about damn time! We first brought up the possibility of the Saints signing Butler nine days ago. Honestly, it's kind of surprising it's taken this long for him to come and visit.
By now we all know the background on Butler. He's familiar with Rob Ryan's defense. He's a young talent that's been stuck behind playmakers Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware. He should come reasonably priced. Yada, yada, yada.
It's a match made in heaven , really. So much so that Larry Holder thinks a Victor Butler signing is inevitable.
I would be surprised if LB Victor Butler doesn't sign with the #Saints. Mutual interest is high.— Larry Holder (@LarryHolder) March 21, 2013
So what the hell are we waiting for? Let's draw up the papers and make this official already!
