Butler caught six of 10 targets for 60 yards and one touchdown in 2018.
Butler played two games with the Cowboys, during which time he failed to bring in his only target, before signing a two-year contract with the Dolphins. The 28-year-old will compete for a depth role in Miami this offseason, and carries a cap hit of $805,000 in 2019.
Butler hauled in his only target for 23 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 win over the Patriots.
Butler made the most of his limited offensive usage during Sunday's upset victory, connecting with quarterback Ryan Tannehill on a 23-yard TD pass late in the third quarter. The veteran nonetheless played only 40 percent of Miami's offensive snaps, and remains unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance again heading into a Week 15 tilt against the Vikings. DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola remain firmly entrenched above Butler in the Dolphins' depth chart.
Butler caught all four of his passes for 25 yards during Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bills.
Butler logged the third highest amount of snaps (34) among Miami's wide receivers during the Week 13 win. The 28-year-old will likely continue to serve as the Dolphins' No. 3 wideout as long as Danny Amendola (knee) remains sidelined. If he's able to continue developing chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, it's conceivable that Butler could secure himself a rotational role even when Amendola eventually returns to the field.
Butler gives the Dolphins needed wideout depth with DeVante Parker (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (leg) currently hurting. Even if both receivers are unable to play coming out of the Dolphins' Week 11 bye, Butler will still be behind at least Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola in the pecking order at the position.
Butler worked out for the Texans but will not sign with the team, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Butler appeared to be a solid candidate to land in Houston after the team lost Will Fuller to a season-ending injury, but the 28-year-old was unable to come to terms on a deal. The former Cowboys wideout will search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.
