Although Drew Butler didn’t have a horrible game on Sunday against the Dolphins, he has clearly overstayed his welcome in Arizona. Last week a punt that failed to get past midfield after stalling on their own 20-yard line won’t cut it.
Head coach Bruce Arians indicates everytime he’s asked is that Butler can hold on place kicks. Hard to believe there isn’t a better punter who can do the same out there? If not, why can’t the Cardinals get their backup quarterback to do it?
Butler actually saved a high snap on Sunday on Chandler Catanzaro’s first extra-point attempt, which did go wide left. But Butler has made too many mistakes and cost the Cardinals too much field position to allow him to continue after this season.
It had appeared the Cardinals let him go once only to bring him back. Hopefully that is not a mistake repeated in the offseason.
