Edit: this could just mean that he did not agree to an offer...but I took it as if they did not offer him one period

Butler must be looking for the highest bidder. He has been to a few teams and hasn't landed a deal yet. That sounds like a guy looking for the biggest pay day, but no one must think that he is worth what he is asking for. He hasn't proven himself yet. Oh well... I would rather not have the guy, than over pay for the guy.

very telling, Ryan must see him as a back up
Butler is looking for the highest bidder. It was rumored that he was seeking @ $5M per year when he visited the Steelers. My guess he is still seeking $4M now (two weeks later) and Loomis is thinking much lower. I'm glad we didn't over pay.

He is definitely looking for more money than any team is willing to offer. He is an unproven commodity and should be paid as such. IMO he should be paid a little more than Junior, 2-3 million a year max.

Players leave visits from the Saints without offers all the time.

It happens every free agency period. Sometimes we end up signing them.
