New defensive coordinator Rob Ryan brought outside linebacker Victor Butler to the New Orleans Saints from the Dallas Cowboys with the hope that Butler could emerge as the team's best pass rusher. Those hopes were dashed on Tuesday.


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. Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune first reported the news. It's a brutal blow for a player that we thought could break out in 2013. It's also devastating for the Saints, who badly needed the pass rush help.

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. We thought Butler was the favorite for the role because of the explosive skills he showed when given the chance with the Cowboys.

Martez Wilson, Junior Gallette and Will Smith remain as candidates to play the "Jack" position this year. This all but ensures all three men will be on the roster this season.

Too bad. But yup, want the teams at full strength at all positions  to prove the Panthers are the better team.  Now they will have excuses...

I guess Rob Ryan will have to throw on a jersey and get out there himself. Wonder if Russel can help him out with some diet tips? I'm sure Payton can help him out after the game with 1 of his famous Oxycontinaladas!

Best of luck for his recovery. Hopefully he can look up to Davis in his ACL recovery and come back, even if he is a Saint.

I'm gonna be classy and wish him the best of luck, unlike Saints fans who were celebrating when Cam got hurt.

I'll be the oddball out and say I'm not completely heartbroken over this. Our oline needs as many breaks as we can get this year.

Still, I hope he recovers.

i really don't know how they are going to run a 3-4 successfully. That's like us trying to run it this season but with much less talent.  Their defense will be abysmal again, maybe not the worst but really bad.

The 34 hopes is dooming their defense. Square pegs in a round hole defense make for great offense.
