Saints News, 5/30/14: Victor Butler Is Back, And Even More Fired Up

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

"It's tremendous," Butler said Thursday. "First of all I'm just happy to be out there with a helmet playing football again. Missing a whole year was heartbreaking. It's like an alcoholic not being able to drink. A fish out of water. I was feeling horrible." Rob Ryan said, "It's great to get him back out there. He looks healthy; I can't wait. Right now, our tempo is that we're working on our scheme, our communication on our scheme, and how we operate. This isn't a full-contact camp. So that's when I think Victor will really show up where he's off his injury and things."
