Cardinals signed WR Brice Butler, formerly of the Cowboys, to a two-year contract.
At this stage of free agency, this is about as good as it gets when it comes to a signing. Butler has long been intriguing dating back to his Raiders days as a former seventh-rounder. He's big (6'3/220) with deep speed (4.37 forty) and averaged 17.3 yards per catch the last two seasons with the Cowboys, though he was criminally underused. With not much going on outside in Arizona, Butler should be given a real chance to carve out a prominent offensive role. Apr 2 - 7:04 PM

Free agent WR Brice Butler is visiting the Cardinals on Monday.

Despite being underused in Dallas, Butler recorded 31 catches for 536 yards (17.3 YPR) and six touchdowns over the last two seasons. Desperate for receiver help, Butler would be a good flier for the Cardinals.
Apr 2 - 12:28 PM

Free agent WR Brice Butler has visits lined up with the Bears, Seahawks, Jaguars, and Cardinals over the next two weeks.

Butler's market has been nonexistent to this point despite averaging 21.1 yards per catch last season. The problem was he caught just 15 balls in a minuscule role with the Cowboys, who for some reason refused to play him significant snaps. Butler is long on talent. We'd love to see him in a more prominent offensive role with an aggressive coach and quarterback.

Impending free agent Brice Butler says he won't re-sign with the Cowboys unless he's promised a starting job.

"With Dallas, the situation has to be right for me to go back," Butler said on FOX Sports 1 Thursday. "I have to be a starter. If I'm not starting, I'm not going back." Pressed by Skip Bayless and Colin Cowherd on why he didn't play more in 2017, Butler was largely miffed, attributing it to Terrance Williams' new contract. That's as good of a guess as any. When he was on the field, the speed demon was productive, turning a measly 15 catches into 317 yards (21.1 YPC). He has six touchdowns on 31 catches over the past two seasons.
Jan 11 - 4:16 PM

Brice Butler caught two passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Eagles.

Butler led Dallas in receiving after being inactive the last three games. He doesn't have much of a future with Dallas despite having a solid skill set. Butler should look for more playing time in 2018 free agency.

Per Pro Football Focus, Dak Prescott's 154.4 QB rating when targeting Brice Butler is the highest for any receiver with at least 10 targets.

On just 11 looks, Butler has an absurd eight catches for 207 yards and two touchdowns. That's more yards and scores than Terrance Williams, who has drawn eight more targets and played 133 more snaps. It would seem the Cowboys have an easy decision to make, but it's seemed like that since last season.

Brice Butler caught both of his targets for 57 yards in the Cowboys' Week 5 loss to the Packers.

Butler got loose for a 49-yard gain in the scramble drill in the first quarter, but he was not targeted again until late in the game. Butler has made some big plays and scored two touchdowns the last three games, but he is not getting enough volume to be a real fantasy option.

Brice Butler caught 2-of-2 targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 4 loss to the Rams.

Butler has scored in consecutive games, but the Cowboys don't use him enough for Butler to be a usable fantasy play. That could change if Terrance Williams got hurt, but for now Butler is value-less beyond deep Dynasty stashes.

Brice Butler caught both of his targets for 90 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

Talk about making the most of your targets. Butler scored a 37-yard touchdown on his first reception, catching a beautiful ball from Dak Prescott who was on the run, and Butler then hauled in a 53-yard bomb over the top of Tyrann Mathieu in the fourth quarter to set up Ezekiel Elliott's game-sealing eight-yard touchdown two plays later. Butler is only a deep-league bench stash.

Brice Butler (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

He's good to go as the No. 4 receiver as a deep threat but isn't a fantasy factor.
Mon, Sep 25, 2017 07:21:00 PM

Brice Butler (ankle) was limited at Friday's practice.

It's only notable with Terrance Williams looking doubtful for Monday. The Cowboys could be down to Noah Brown opposite Dez Bryant.

Cowboys WR Brice Butler has a sprained foot.

The team is seeking a second opinion. The speed demon was the team's No. 4 receiver last season, and is slated for a similar role in 2017.
Thu, Aug 10, 2017 04:08:00 PM

Cowboys re-signed WR Brice Butler to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

Butler caught 16-of-33 targets for 219 yards and three touchdowns across 447 snaps last season as the Cowboys' No. 4 receiver. He's hoping for a bigger role, but we doubt it comes with the Cowboys likely to replace free agent Terrance Williams as the No. 2 behind Dez Bryant. Butler is just a deep threat.

Brice Butler caught his lone target for a 21-yard touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 16 win over the Lions.

Butler has now posted back-to-back one-catch, 21-yard games. His touchdown capped the opening series and was an absolute dime from Dak Prescott down the seam. Butler has three touchdowns as the No. 3/4 receiver.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 12:37:00 AM

Brice Butler caught 1-of-3 targets for a 20-yard touchdown Week 6 against the Packers.

Butler's touchdown was a toe-tap grab on a beautiful throw by Dak Prescott late in the first half. Butler had two more opportunities for big plays, but he could not come down with a tough catch on the sideline and dropped another great throw by Dak in the second half. With Dez Bryant expected back after the bye, Butler is headed back to the bench.
