The 32-year-old Clemson University product was selected in the fifth round, 164th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2010 NFL draft. Butler played for the Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks. He made 27 tackles and two forced fumbles in 46 games.

Chris Jones originally brought Butler to Saskatchewan and new management combined with age has ended his time in Regina.
