There have been a flurry of new hires around the NFL. And while
Jason Smith doesn't dislike any of them, he writes that some could have been matched better to their situations.
Butler's contract is up in Pittsburgh, although he has been in negotiations with the Steelers. Butler is highly respected and has long been viewed as the successor to defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who goes year-to-year on his contracts but is showing no signs of slowing down.
Butler, however, is eager to run his own defense, the sources said.
The Steelers continue attempts to retain Butler, but the Colts, who recently hired Chuck Pagano to be their head coach, are very interested.
