Deon Butler Unplugged

by: Michael Steffes

There has already been plenty of mention of a diminutive WR with blazing fast speed who has been a Seahawk for just over week. His name is Deon Butler, and he's one of the Hawks' answers to the wide receiver woes of 2008.

Speaking from home in Virgina (I told you they send the rookies home quick), he gave an interview to Mitch Levy of KJR this morning. Here is the audio. Butler talks about both his jet-like speed and the Seahawks post-draft mini camp. It isn't hard to see why the Seahawks like him.

The team has Bulter leaning punt return duties, a position in which his speed will definitely be utilized. Give it a listen! END
