Crezdon Butler Claimed Off Waivers By Cardinals


It was easy to see coming and as I predicted following the Saturday release of cornerback Crezdon Butler, the Arizona Cardinals claimed Butler off of waivers today. The Cardinals were down to just 4 cornerbacks after their final roster cuts on Saturday and you had to know former Steelers defensive backs coach Ray Horton would be watching the Steelers waiver wire closely.

Horton had Butler under is wing last year after Butler was picked by the Steelers in the 5th round of the 2010 draft. Horton said last year that Butler worked at both corner and safety and always seemed to have glowing reports on the young corner out of Clemson. When Horton took the job as defensive coordinator with the Cardinals following the Super Bowl, he hired former Steelers defensive back Deshea Townsend as his defensive backs coach as the Cardinals shift to a true 3-4 defense filled with mostly zone type coverages. Butler will likely compete for the nickel corner spot with the Cardinals initially.

    You were also right on Warren, whom they did not PS.
