Arizona Cardinals reportedly to get a visit from a Butler
It is no secret that the Arizona Cardinals are in the market for a receiver or two this offseason
One position of need for the Arizona Cardinals that has not been addressed yet this offseason is receiver. On Monday there was speculation about a possible Odell Beckham Jr. link to the Cardinals and on Tuesday it was former Dallas Cowboys receiver Brice Butler.
We all know Beckham won’t be coming to Arizona. Butler reportedly will come for a visit. He is also reportedly visiting the Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, and Jacksonville Jaguars according to Profootballtalk.com.
Whether Arizona can lure him or not is a bigger question. The good thing is he has a great chance to be the starter he wants to be in Arizona. The Cardinals have lost Jaron Brown and John Brown so far in free agency.
Larry Fitzgerald is coming back for at least one more season but there are no promises past that point. There are also no promises that Butler will deliver even if he does sign here.
He caught just 15 passes for 317-yards and three touchdowns in 2017. That’s the kind of productivity that will having leaving the desert in a hurry.
They need playmakers and need to be thinking about more than for just 2018 at the position. Brice is just 28, so he could still have a good six or seven years of NFL football in him.
There have been a number of players that have visited recently and left without a contract only to sign elsewhere or not be signed yet. Look for the Cardinals to make a move here sooner rather than later.
Next: Beckham likely too pricey for the Arizona Cardinals
The receivers in the NFL Draft his year is not a deep group. Most will be guys that could fill number three, four, five spots on a roster. The Cardinals need to find their number two guy right now. Three as well, although J.J. Nelson could be that guy.
