What went right: Butler is still a solid slot corner, but was forced to play out of position at times this season due to injuries. He finished the season with an interception and two forced fumbles.
What went wrong: Butler was forced to play outside while Toler was injured and that simply isn’t in his skill set. He wasn’t immune to the injury bug either, missing two games and playing a number of them hurt. Butler was graded higher than Toler this season, but was still in that “god awful” range. At the very least, he was more productive and forced multiple turnovers.
Offseason expectations: Butler is heading into a contract year and the Colts would only save $2.5 million by cutting him. They’re also going to be thin at corner after letting Toler walk, so it is unlikely that Butler is on the list of cuts. He is still a good slot corner and if the Colts can manage a pass rush next season will be more than adequate for the team.
