    Bulter and Rams not close

    Per Rotoworld:

    James Butler-DB-Giants Feb. 28 - 12:41 pm et

    Free agent S James Butler may visit the Browns later Saturday.

    Butler is in St. Louis, but it appears he's far apart in contract talks with the Rams. Butler is a solid, if unspectacular, option to start at safety.

    New York Giants safety James Butler could visit Cleveland Browns today

    Free agent safety James Butler is still visiting the Rams in St. Louis, but by the end of the day, he might be in Cleveland talking to the Browns.
    Butler's agent, Carl Poston, said this morning he and his brother, Kevin, are talking contract with St. Louis. But it doesn't sound like the negotiations are very hot.

    "Well, we're talking. We're still a bit apart," Poston said. "You know how it is with these things: sometimes it's tough to tell if you're 5 yards apart, 10 yards apart or whatever."

    When asked if he expected Butler to sign with the Rams and their new head coach Steve Spagnuolo, who was Butler's defensive coordinator with the Giants for the past two seasons, Poston said, "No, I don't think a deal will be struck today."

    Poston confirmed the Browns are next on Butler's itinerary and that he has tentative plans to fly to Cleveland later today. Poston said those plans aren't in stone because they're "contingent" on what happens with the Rams. But if he doesn't expect a deal from St. Louis to be completed, it's safe to say Butler's trip to Cleveland is almost a certainty.

    As for the Giants, Poston said, "(Butler's) a free agent. They can step up at any time." When told Butler said last week he'd keep the Giants in the loop, Poston said, "I think they want him back, but honestly they have bigger fish to fry right now. We might wind up talking to them soon. We'll see."

    How about Clevelands FA safety, Sean Jones? If they are trying to sign Butler that may mean they are letting Jones walk. I think he would be a good addition in case the Butler thing doesn't work out.

    No reason to get excited about butler given who his agents are. Our history with the postons is terrible.

    ramming speed to all
