Colts' Darius Butler: Could shift back to corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (head) could move back to corner in 2017, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

It was previously reported that Butler's shift to safety during the 2016 season would be his permanent position in 2017. However, the selection of Malik Hooker in the first round of the 2017 draft has given the Colts another starting caliber safety, making Butler's positioning more flexible. Along with playing safety, look for Butler to see some action as a slot corner, where he previously excelled.

Butler (head) will remain at safety after changing positions during the 2016 season, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Butler asked to play safety more as the 2016 season wore on and he will remain there for the foreseeable future. He's expected to start at safety alongside Clayton Geathers in 2017.

Colts' Darius Butler: Re-signing with Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (head) is re-signing with the Colts on a one-year deal,'s Mike Wells reports.

A cornerback throughout his career, Butler spent much of last season at safety, which could be his primary home in 2017. The Colts don't have a clear starting safety alongside Clayton Geathers (neck), who may even get some playing time as a linebacker in sub packages. While the team also appears less than stellar at cornerback, Butler would fill a bigger need at safety.
