Where are they now - James Butler

Sad to be sending James to the "where are they now" segment, but life rolls on. Well, he didn't get drafted, which was quit a shock to most Jacket fans. Of course we all know he fell victim to the "Mel Kiper Curse"........ The good news is that he has signed a free agent deal with the NY Giants.

James Butler had something to celebrate Sunday after all.

After not being picked in this past weekend's NFL draft, the former Bainbridge High School and Georgia Tech star signed as a free agent with the New York Giants. According to Butler, he also had free-agent offers from Arizona, Tennessee, Buffalo and Dallas.

"That's the best opportunity for me to make the squad," Butler said in a cell phone interview from his home town of Climax. "I feel like I have a good chance to start."
