“For his career, Butler has appeared in 63 games (2 starts), has 11 sacks and 50 tackles, all with the Dallas Cowboys. It’s unclear whether he’s fully recovered from his ACL surgery, but he would provide the Colts with another situational pass rusher. Keep in mind, the team has already lost OLB’s Robert Mathis and Cam Johnson for the season, and could possibly stand to add some pass-rushing boost.”
In a corresponding move, they waived OLB Chris Carter, who had been added on September 9, 2014, to replace the injured OLB Cam Johnson on the active roster. He had appeared in 1 game for the team, but had no recorded stats.
