At most, the team should make a 1-yr qualifying offer to see how well he converts in the 4-3. But IMO, he's not worth getting a multiple year contract.
The fact that a "hobbled" Ware was playing and not Butler is very telling as to the talents, or lack of it, in Butler.
We still had hopes of a playoff slot and a "hobbled" Ware was there and not Butler.
Butler is serviceable. But not a 1st-tier player and maybe not even a 2nd-tier player.
Let us get real about our players. Most on the defensive front, save ware and lee, would not make starters at most teams in the NFL.
We cowboys faithful need to stop gushing over journeymen players such at Hatcher and Butler and Ratliff and keep evaluating the young who might be healthier, more athletic and stop being so sentimental about players who no longer are top tier or who never were. Not that your post said so.
And I agree with you that Butler is not worth a multi-year contract.
