I think Butler could be another Kevin Glenn type, steady but not spectacular, if he gets a chance to play.
Still think it was a dumb trade though, two veteran starters and a draft choice and then you cut the guy without playing him. I know he asked for his release, but only after they humiliated him.
Jason Maas is playing exactly the same as last year and he's not going to get any better IMO. Would the Ticats be any worse off right now if they had played Butler to bridge the gap to Chang? I don't think so. Might have even won the game the other night.
The Argos may well cut him if Bishop can come back this fall, but Damon may be on the shelf by that time. Some other team may be desperate for an experienced QB by that time also. Argos might even get a draft choice for him down the road.
