Deon Butler - WR - Seahawks

Seahawks re-signed WR Deon Butler.
Butler takes the place of Charly Martin, who was sent to injured reserve with a calf injury. Butler was at the team's facility for a workout on Friday. He was among Seattle's final cuts heading into the season. Butler had previously worked out for the Saints and Lions this year.

Didn't see this anywhere else other than the unconfirmed sighting thread.
Good news. I've always liked Butler.

Nice!

I think he'll surprise us now that he's playing with a good QB. Hass wasn't Hass by the time Deon came around. He put up some good numbers, at a good school, and even avoided the temptation of fondling a toddler while there. He can produce.

I doubt he is going be very involved. Him and Russell haven't exactly done a lot of throw and catch.

You may very well be right, Galen. We'll find out in T-minus 22 hours. :D

That's new news. Just the other day, they said he wasn't going to be flying to Toronto. That's good news then. My apologies.

Ya, he'll be inactive. He hasn't played a down all season, so there's no way he's ready to contribute yet.

After Golden Tate gets an 80-yard TD reception and then our defense forces a 3-and-out and he's still winded, someone will have to step in for him. :D

I'm really surprised Butler had not caught on with a new team yet. He should be a good addition for the stretch.

Butler! Yay good to hear. I didn't think Butler fit at the beginning of the year really but with Ben Obomanu, Braylon Edwards and Charly Martin all gone I'm happy to see him back!

Then again I wanted Lockette to make the roster instead of Martin and I still miss having him around. I don't care what you guys think! He's still gonna be great! Jordan Kent yeah! But there's nothing on channel 83 right now. :cry:

I think he brings something to the table. It would be great to see him contribute.

I had high hopes for Deon, surprised he didn't end up being much of a deep threat, isn't he really fast? I didn't watch him a ton in college but wasn't he more of the over the middle catch everything Bobby Engram type? Wasn't it him who surpassed bobby's college records? Is it the whole press coverage issue?

I really liked Deon Butler, and glad to see him back. hope he sticks around for awhile and gets a legitimate shot to prove his worth like GOlden Tate has.

Adding some speed and a guy that can catch is never bad.

Yay! Super glad to see Deon back. Dude is a nice consistent target who can (um, should?) take the top off a defense. Was pissed when they kept martin over him.

As someone that never liked Deon Butler much, I'm 100% fine with him signing with us again. Seattle's depth situation at WR went from very good to very bad in just a few weeks. Adding another WR with familiarity makes a ton of sense, especially after all the Sidney Rice scares we've had in recent weeks.

Like many, I too have always liked Butler and never fully understood why he didn't have a bigger impact than he did. Seemed capable of a blue-collar, respectable numbers kind of receiver like a Butler or Branch. Hope he sticks this time.

We need him but let's face it he was worked out by two teams since we cut him and didn't stick. A few catches would be more than expected.

He's a slight built WR. He has skills and speed. We are hurting so bad right now at DB and WR he'll probably see some action on special teams. We needed a guy who could play STs, WR and knows the offense. He was the prefect choice.

Butler was one of my favourite players on the team, and I was upset when they cut him this year and kept Edwards and Martin instead. I was hoping the Hawks would come to their sense and sign him again when injuries mounted up. He's a good backup slot receiver in my opinion.
