CB Darius Butler released by Patriots after club was unable to trade him - should be a hot commodity on waivers.

I hope to eat some crow here. Another poster said Butler getting released would be the best thing for him, I disagreed. Maybe a fresh start will work.

He seemed to be in Belichick's dog house no? A fresh start could do him good.

It was obvious he was gone for sometime. The Press had him on the trade list after Week 2.

QBs would run plays against him all day long when he checked in. It wasn't a good situation in the read and react 3-4 offense. I think there was hope the 4-3 would leave Darius less naked and force outlet passes early but it didn't seem to work as well as intended.

The Raiders need CB help. It would be great to see him and Branch together again.

Just drafted him and branch onto the Jets for my Madden 12 franchise :D Both had picks in the first game. Anyway pretty shocking news I also think a fresh start is a good thing for Branch.

I love to see the Giant's take him but think others will claim him first.

the kid was not good with his time on the Patriots...being a Pats fan I can hardly blame them for letting him go. He will get another chance b/c of his athletism but if he does not improve the kid is gonna have a very short NFL career.

They get rid of McClain and take Darius - interesting.

Much better weather in Carolina than in Foxboro. That's one bright side.

Where does it say they got rid of McLain?
He and Lawrence Wilson both got cut on cut day to trim the roster to 53 players. Was more shocked about Lawrence to be honest.

Butler gone? Can't be. Plenty of posters on here last week said he was safe and that my belief was unfounded..
