Phillips still looks like a great match- 3-4 veteran, still has some gas, not likely to be a cap busting contract
Here's another to the radar-
UFA Victor Butler, Dallas
He has been in the league for 4 years, but only started two games. However, in his limited time on the field, he has been quite the productive linebacker, with 4 forced fumbles and 11 sacks. He only played in 299 snaps this year for Dallas, but earned the 7th overall ranking for outside linebackers from PFF (7.2)
ESPN Dallas says it's time for the Cowboys to let impending free agent OLB Victor Butler "test the market."
Butler, just last summer, was once "penciled in" as Anthony Spencer's heir apparent at outside linebacker with the Cowboys. Now, with a switch to a 4-3 defense under Monte Kiffin, Butler doesn't have a spot. He's never showed consistency when it comes to rushing the passer, but Butler also hasn't been able to get on the field behind Spencer and DeMarcus Ware. He should draw significant interest if he indeed gets to test the free-agent waters.
