The Indianapolis Colts have resigned cornerback Darius Butler to a 2 year deal.
The Indianapolis Colts' leader in interceptions last year is staying. After being picked up midseason, Darius Butler had 4 interceptions in 11 games, including 2 of them for touchdowns. He had a good impact on the team, and served as a very good replacement for Jerraud Powers. Butler looked good in coverage, running with guys down the field and showing good physicality. He's definitely a keeper.
He spent a few years trying to find himself, jumping from team to team, and failing on each one. Now, he's with the Colts, and it seems to be the right fit. He seems happy and it seems like he's here to stay.
Jerraud Powers is a free agent and if he doesn't return, expect Butler to fight for the last cornerback spot. If Powers does return, which is a big if, Powers would most likely get the last spot with Toler and Davis getting the other two. Anyways, keeping Butler was the right move.
The details include a 2 year deal worth an undisclosed amount of money. Stay tuned for the full amount.
