Biography

Brice Butler was acquired by Dallas in a trade with Oakland after a foot injury suffered by Dez Bryant in Week 1 of 2015 left the Cowboys thin at the wide receiver position. Butler brings an array of talents to the Cowboys, most notably his speed and athleticism, which was displayed by his 4.36 40-yard dash time, a 6.6 mark in the 3-cone drill, a 10’9 broad jump, and a 39-inch vertical - stats that would have landed him in the top-three of all drills at the Combine - at his Pro Day in 2013. As a reserve receiver with the Raiders, Butler played in 25 games and caught 30 passes for 383 yards with two touchdowns. Despite finishing with only 21 catches in 2014, Butler tied for fourth on the Raiders with two receptions of 20-plus yards, working as a down field target for the offense. He was limited by a hamstring injury in his first season in Dallas and played in seven games with two starts, then filled in for Bryant with three starts in 16 games played in 2016. Butler signed a one-year extension with Dallas for 2017 and looks to be a key part in multi-receiver sets.
