    We saw Gargantua scrotum Vrabel quickly take out Nick Williams as punt returner after realizing he posed no threat at that position. Will he make a even bigger move and move Butler to the Nickel? Let's get something straight, is Butler overpaid? Of course. Is he a terrible player? Nah, he's a decent player, I just don't think he's a quality starter in this league and I think he will look MUCH better and be able to contribute more as the third corner. He's a slow and bulky corner that likes to play physical and jam and all that, which is perfect for the Nickel. I hope he proves me wrong in the future but right now he's getting exposed.

    Said it since day one. We overpaid for him. I agree he needs to play nickle. Id feel much better with Sims in the outside than Butler.

    So far Butler has been targeted quite heavily and given up some major yardage but he has also shown his play-making ability with a Sack, INT and FF on the season. I think its still too early to make this call seen as he is still building chemistry with his safeties and with Cyp and Vacarro both having succumb to injury it makes it that much harder.

    Sims?? No jackson and ryan should play outside on nickel downs. Sims is our #4 and he should stay there for now.

    I'd be all for it

    Butler is constantly playing catch up vs these outside receivers

    His aggressiveness is cool but he needs help over the top . Seems like he’s on an island way too often .

    Yea, he's not passing the eye test very well, but he is making up for it in other gritty ways.

    Does anyone have the ability to get stats on targets vs completions and yardage? Not sure if that is something PFF offers.
