  • Hakeem Butler: Waived by Philly

    Butler was waived by the Eagles on Monday.

    Butler failed to make the cut as the team reduced the roster down to 80 players. The Cardinals' fourth-round selection in 2019 will hope to latch on with another team, but Butler's chances of playing in the NFL this season are slim.

  • Eagles' Hakeem Butler: Signs with Eagles

    Butler signed a reserve/future contract with Philadelphia on Monday.

    Butler landed a spot with the Eagles after spending the 2020 season developing in his new role as tight end on the practice squad. The 24-year-old saw one target during his two matchups this season in Philadelphia.

  • Hakeem Butler: Waived by Philly

    Butler was waived by the Eagles on Saturday.

    Butler was strictly a special teams player in the two games he played for Philadelphia. Expect Butler to continue developing in his new tight end position with the Eagles' practice squad should he pass through waivers.

  • Eagles' Hakeem Butler: Philly debut must wait

    Butler (healthy scratch) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

    The Eagles promoted Butler from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's contest, but he'll need more time to pick up the offense before being trusted in game-time action. Butler is being asked to learn the tight end position in Philadelphia, so the team may consider him more of a developmental project than a player expected to contribute in the near future.

  • Eagles' Hakeem Butler: Signs with Eagles

    The Eagles signed Butler off the Panthers' practice squad Tuesday.

    The Eagles are listing Butler as a tight end, so he'll add depth at the position since Dallas Goedert (ankle) was placed on IR and will miss the next three weeks. The 2019 fourth-round pick was a standout wide receiver at Iowa State in 2018 but spent his rookie season on IR and failed to make the Cardinals' 53-man roster this year. At 6-foot-5, 225 pounds, perhaps he can operate at tight end, but his signing should be of little concern to fantasy managers.

  • Hakeem Butler: Gets chance on practice squad

    The Panthers signed Butler to the practice squad Friday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Butler spent his entire rookie season with the Cardinals on injured reserve after the team selected him in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, and he wasn't able to make Arizona's final roster this season. It was somewhat surprising to see the Cardinals pass on signing Butler to the practice squad, but he'll now get another chance to show his worth at the NFL level in Carolina. The former Iowa State standout is a raw prospect, but he did put together an impressive final collegiate season in 2018 (60/1,318/9), and his rare combination of size and athleticism hints at developmental upside.

  • Hakeem Butler: Sent away by Cards

    The Cardinals waived Butler on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Butler has had a star-crossed run in the pros since the Cardinals made him a fourth-round pick in the 2019 draft. One of three rookie wide receivers for the team last year, he kicked off camp working with the deep reserves and eventually suffered a season-ending avulsion fracture in his hand last August. After spending his entire rookie campaign on IR, Butler didn't get a chance to show his worth on the field this offseason due to the ongoing pandemic and now finds himself searching for employment. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, though, Butler may end up on the Cardinals' practice squad.

  • Cardinals' Hakeem Butler: Looking to bounce back

    Butler (hand) told podcaster Marchie Murdock that he's ready for practice.

    The 2019 fourth-round pick spent his entire rookie campaign on injured reserve after suffering an avulsion fracture in his hand during the preseason. There's no clear path to a top-three role in Arizona, but Butler could battle Andy Isabella, KeeSean Johnson and Trent Sherfield for the No. 4 receiver job, a spot that actually carries a bit of weight in Kliff Kingsbury's offense.

  • Cardinals' Hakeem Butler: Moved to injured reserve

    The Cardinals placed Butler (hand) on injured reserve Sunday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Butler was in a precarious spot before being diagnosed with an avulsion fracture early last week. Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk are locked into the top two spots at wide receiver for the Cardinals; fellow rookies Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson looked far more comfortable in the offense; and holdover Trent Sherfield picked up where he left off from the second half of last season. The final nail in Butler's coffin was the injury, which was followed by the signing of veteran wideout Michael Crabtree. Because Butler landed on IR before Week 1, he'll remain there for the entirety of his rookie campaign.

  • Cardinals' Hakeem Butler: May land on IR with hand injury

    Butler has an avulsion fracture in his hand, making him a candidate to be placed on injured reserve, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Butler reportedly missed practice the past two days, after finishing with no catches on one target (22 snaps) in Thursday's preseason loss to Oakland. The rookie fourth-round pick didn't seem to be making a push for a significant role in the Arizona offense, but his draft status presumably would've ensured him of a spot on the 53-man roster. While it isn't clear if Butler will be placed on injured reserve, coach Kliff Kingsbury did say the 23-year-old will be held out for the rest of the preseason, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. Given his slow progress this summer, an IR stash might be the best outcome for all parties.
