Butler could be another option for Minnesota if the team ends up needing a player to replace Munnerlyn in the slot. With the Colts for the past five seasons, Butler has developed into one of the NFL’s best coverage corners when tasked with the duty to cover the opposing offense’s slot receiver.
In addition to his experience in the slot, he also played for bit as a safety in Indianapolis last year. Zimmer loves to have versatile players on his defense and Butler’s ability to play well at multiple positions on the field fits that mold.
Due mainly to his age, Butler likely will not be commanding a big-time contract in free-agency this offseason so the Vikings should be able to add the corner to their team for a relatively cheap amount of money.
