- BUTLER TEARS ACL DURING SAINTS PRACTICE - Former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan brought linebacker Victor Butler with him in hopes that he would become the team’s best pass rusher in the Saints new 3-4 scheme. Those hopes now seem lost. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Butler tore his anterior cruciate ligament during Tuesday’s organized team activities after a collision with running back Mark Ingram. Butler was one of the four players competing to be Ryan’s “Jack” linebacker in 2013. That’s essentially the glamour position in a 3-4 defense, the position that gets the most opportunities to record big sack totals. Because Butler played for Ryan, we assumed he probably would have won this role due to his experience he has in Ryan’s defense.  Martez Wilson, Junior Gallette and Will Smith remain as candidates to play the “Jack” position this year. No matter who wins the role, we expect all three players to make the New Orleans Saints roster this year to make up for Butler’s loss. (Photo: NOLA.com)
