The defensive makeover continues in New Orleans. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday that the Saints plan to sign free-agent Victor Butler, the former Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker who will be used to rush the passer in coordinator Rob Ryan's 3-4 defensive front. Butler attracted plenty of interest on the open market, visiting with the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. The 25-year-old defender showed potential getting to the quarterback last season, racking up three sacks in two starts. His playing time in Dallas, however, was limited in the shadows of Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware.
