WR Brice Butler Makes Waves With Controversial Comments

Heading into this 2018 , the have to answer some critical questions about their corps.

Well, it appears that final question answered itself earlier this week.

wide out Brice Butler took to to voice his opinions on his future with the Cowboys, stating that if he isn't going to be a starter, he isn't going to come back at all.

“I think in this league, when you think about the business aspect, you've got to follow the money trail… Both of our starters made money. Terrance [Williams] just got paid last year. So there were times where I was like, ‘I'm making plays, aren't we trying to win games? Why am I not on the field?' But that's the only thing that I can really think of.” -Brice Butler

Butler also made waves with a comment on Fox's Undisputed, claiming that if given the same chances as Dez Bryant, he would have been more productive than Bryant was this season.

I am totally for a player getting the money he feels he deserves, and I wasn't really “for” the Cowboys bringing back Butler anyway, but he probably sealed his fate In Dallas with his comments. This is the same team that cut last offseason to send a message, and has tried to “clean up” their locker room with the “right kind of guys” lately, so it'd be hard to imagine them re- Butler now.

Even though I don't think it's that outlandish of a comment for him to make. I mean, why shouldn't he want an opportunity to start somewhere? Unfortunately for Butler, I doubt that opportunity is in Dallas.

Plus, we all thought Butler should've gotten more chances during his time here, dating back to the disastrous season in 2015. And when he did get chances, Butler showed flashes of how valuable he can be.

Still, I think the Cowboys should draft a wide out to be their much-needed Z receiver, and signing Butler would just add to the log jam of pretty mediocre players at the position already.

Could Brice Butler have been more productive than Bryant? I guess we'll never know. But it's astounding how this rather average football team cannot help but make the news each and every day.

Couldn’t even beat out Terrance Williams. Let Washington or Cleveland overpay him lol

dallas doesn’t use their WR’s the right way.

how is it that we don’t have a package that includes, dez, butler, williams, and cole or switzer out on the field? seems to be that it would be a huge mis-match for some defenses.

when all your routes are designed to go to the sidelines, it makes for a poor offensive performance by the WR’s.

Time to move on from Dez but Butler needs to learn how to compete

jeonymac

So what was the reason for cutting Lucky Whitehead again?

Michael Esquivel

OMG!! He said he won’t sign unless he starts!! Please!? Good for him it’s sad but true he’s the best receiver on the roster which isn’t saying much Dez gotta go making to much for a 3rd string receiver unless he takes a pay cut he ain’t gonna do nothing for Dallas he needs a fresh start with a QB/coach that knows how to use him

Emilio Gonzalez

I would put it like this he would do a better job than Dez having the same amount of balls thrown to Him don’t want to get into details and I agree with oneputter comment.Thanks

Emilio Gonzalez

Remember Speed Kills. Thanks

Kevin do you have the quote reference where Butler said he wouldn’t return if he isn’t going to start?

I see some other remarks above, that are not atypical of WR’s who are known to be mouthy as a bunch. If it’s no more than what is above, I doubt Jones or Garrett will react to it. He is the only speed WR right now, he did make plays when he was occasionally put in the game, and I’d rather hold him and trade or release Williams, even if a top WR is acquired.

There may be some trade value for both Williams and Beasley, and if fair, I’d do those trades in hopes of depth elsewhere like OL.

Butler is right, coaching is terrible. I think Butler has a better year with the same touches. Bottom line the cowboys have two 4.52 receivers (twill & dez) a slow tight end and a slow slot recever. You cant have both of your top 2 recievers be slow. But Garrett new that when they invested money in them. If your paying them to start their going to start thats how the cowboys operate. If you’ve watched the cowboys through the years like i have you’d know that. Just because the player is better doesnt matter, its who’s getting paid to start. Butler is correct hes not the 1st cowboy to leave the team as a backup thats better than our starter. Romo lucked up that quincy self destructed he wouldve been cut. Its all politics with the cowboys your draft selection our yor pay out weighs your talent most the time.

I agree with Butler 100%!
