Donald Butler: Released by Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers released Donald Butler on Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Butler's production dwindled as the season proceeded, with no more than one tackle on the ledger in all but one of the Chargers' last eight games. Overall, he totaled 43 tackles (24 solo), one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and a half sack in the first complete 16-game slate since his first in 2011. Expect the 27-year-old to land in another organization to provide depth at inside linebacker, at the very least.

Chargers' Donald Butler: May be released this offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donald Butler could be released this offseason, Tom Krasovic of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

This is somewhat surprising considering Butler signed a massive seven year contract just two seasons ago. Butler seemed to fall out of the defensive rotation as the 2015 season progressed, with rookie linebacker Denzel Perryman seemingly taking over the starting linebacker job alongside Manti Te'o after the team's Week 10 bye. While Butler is just 27 years-old, he's failed to register one season with 100-plus tackles, and has only managed to play in all 16 games just twice in his five year career, so it remains to be seen what kind of market may surface for the former Washington standout if he does wind up on the open market.
