Cowboys To Cut Brice Butler

Brice Butler‘s latest Cowboys stint will end as a result of the franchise’s Amari Cooper acquisition. The Cowboys informed Butler they intend to release him, Jane Slater of NFL.com tweets.

The veteran wide receiver rejoined the Cowboys this year after a Cardinals signing did not work out. He played in one game thus far this season and did not catch a pass.

The well-traveled pass-catcher averaged 21.1 yards per catch last season and parlayed that work into a two-year Arizona deal. He did not end up making the Cardinals’ 53-man roster, though, and returned to the Cowboys as roster depth for a shaky receiving corps.

Having begun his career with the Raiders as a seventh-round pick, Reggie McKenzie traded Butler to the Cowboys prior to the 2015 season. He played three seasons in Dallas.
