    You want to get more technical? James Farrior didn't do anything when he played for the Jets...we signed him and look how well he turned out for us. Like I said, Butler is only 25 (yeah, I posted he was 26 in my previous post..my bad)..could be a gem.
    What?? Talk about someone not doing their homework. James Farrior had 142 tackles for the Jets the year before he became a Steeler. I would hard think that would fall under the category of "not doing anything."
    Steelers 2015 Draft???....Go Freak! As in....

    Steelers to bring in OLB Victor Butler for a visit

    In an offseason that's seen the [URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/pittsburgh-steelers"]Steelers[/URL] lose a third round pick from the 2009 draft ([URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/71118/mike-wallace"]Mike Wallace[/URL]) and their first round pick in 2008 ([URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/34448/rashard-mendenhall"]Rashard Mendenhall[/URL]), they may be in position to take a young player off another team.[URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/dallas-cowboys"]Cowboys[/URL] outside linebacker [URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/71553/victor-butler"]Victor Butler[/URL], a fourth-round pick in 2009, [URL="https://twitter.com/JasonLaCanfora/status/312037064067657728"]is set to visit the Steelers,[/URL] reported CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora via Twitter Wednesday.
    La Canfora said "several teams" will be interested in Butler, who had three sacks and a forced fumble, appearing in all 16 of Dallas's games last season. Interest from other teams is intriguing, and while the Steelers have been fleeced out of a few of their new fourth-year free agents (with [URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/71114/keenan-lewis"]Keenan Lewis[/URL], a college teammate of Butler's at Oregon State), it's tantalizing to think about signing someone else's.
    Butler saw limited duty with the Cowboys, considering the talent they have at outside linebacker. He provided decent pressure when he was in there, but there are some concerns about the level of run support he's able to provide.
    The Steelers had [URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/34378/dan-connor"]Dan Connor[/URL] in for a visit recently, but no contract materialized out of it. Butler would be the second, and would be in position to compete for a starting position with [URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/108423/jason-worilds"]Jason Worilds[/URL], and fill in for [URL="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/16799/lamarr-woodley"]LaMarr Woodley[/URL] when he pulls a hamstring.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Yeah I think you got the point. You didn't know much about James Farrior just like you dont really know much about Victor Butler.
