Bills waived CB Crezdon Butler.

Butler had been penciled in opposite Leodis McKelvin while Stephon Gilmore recovers from wrist surgery, but WGR 550 Buffalo reported Wednesday that his roster spot still wasn't sewn up. It now appears one of Justin Rogers and T.J. Heath will get the nod. A 2010 fifth-round pick of the Steelers, Butler has never made a start, and played just 19 snaps between the Bills and Redskins last season.

WGR 550 Buffalo believes CB Crezdon Butler is still competing for a roster spot.

Butler is currently expected to replace Stephon Gilmore (wrist surgery) at right cornerback for the first six weeks. It would take a disastrous fourth preseason game for him to get released over T.J. Heath. UDFA Nickell Robey and Ron Brooks are battling for nickel duties.

WGR550's Joe Buscaglia believes CB Crezdon Butler could be a sleeper to start opposite Stephon Gilmore this season.

Butler, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Steelers in 2010 who was signed off Arizona's practice squad last year. With Leodis McKelvin still rehabbing from surgery, the door is wide open for Butler to make a move up the depth chart.

Butler spent last season on injured reserve due to a dislocated ankle. He then missed final cuts this year. Butler takes the roster spot of Ryan Williams, meaning the Cardinals aren't adding a veteran running back just yet. Butler will focus on special teams if active this week.
Tue, Oct 9, 2012 11:54:00 AM

Redskins claimed CB Crezdon Butler off waivers from the Cardinals.

A fifth-round pick of the Steelers in 2010, Butler spent 2011 on injured reserve with the Cardinals. He will be a special teamer in Washington.
