hitting 30 soon. Part time player. I can only hope he leaves here without a contract.

@MMehtaNYDN: Jets didn't make an offer to OLB Antwan Barnes. Seems like they're turning their attention elsewhere. Victor Butler still on radar. #nyj
Three unrestricted free agents who met with the Steelers today -- former Arizona running back Beanie Wells, former Dallas linebacker Victor Butler and former Chicago Bears tight end Kellen Davis left the South Side facility without any contract discussion.
A team source said that does not preclude the possibility the Steelers could still sign at least one of the players.
Meantime, guard Willie Colon, who was released Wednesday, didn't take long to find employment. He signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets for a reported $1.2 million.
I think Butler will get at least double what Barnes gets. Do I prefer Butler?? Yes, but Barnes is still a good option at his price.
We can afford Butler if we are really sold on him long term. The only teams interested in him have even less money than we do, or are the Steelers who don't like to spend money on FAs. Barnes sounds like he'd be another one year try out type. I think Butler is going to get a 3 year deal from someone. I'm kind of leaning towards going all in on him. Not quite sure though. Not much film on him, and no one knows for sure how he would hold up. Still would offer Barnes a one year deal with small bonus.
