NFL Free Agency 2013: Victor Butler Visiting Saints Today

Butler's visit has been long awaited.

Just as we all expected, Dallas Cowboys unrestricted free agent linebacker Victor Butler will be visiting with the Saints today.

Jason LaCanfora broke the news via Twitter late last night and our man Larry Holder confirmed.

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.

So what the hell are we waiting for? Let's draw up the papers and make this official already!
