Deon Butler WR SD 8 Months
Chargers signed WRs Deon Butler and Dan DePalma, and DB Cornelius Brown.
They're offseason depth. The 91st pick in the 2009 draft, Butler has the most notable name as a former Penn State Nittany Lion who ran 4.32 at the Combine. He only has 57 receptions for 611 yards (10.7 YPR) and four scores across three NFL seasons and was not tendered as a restricted free agent by Seattle.

The Lions worked out free agent wide receivers Deon Butler, Brian Robiskie and Legedu Naanee on Tuesday.
The Lions are in the market for wideout depth with Nate Burleson (leg) done for the year. Naanee is the best blocker in the group while Butler's speed gives him the most upside as a receiver. Butler has been on the street since the Seahawks cut him just before Week 1 this season.

Seahawks waived DB Phillip Adams, DE Pierre Allen, LB Allen Bradford, WR Deon Butler, WR Kris Durham, G Paul Fanaika, G Rishaw Johnson, WR Jermaine Kearse, LB Kyle Knox, WR Ricardo Lockette, TE Sean McGrath, DE Cordarro Law, C Kris O'Dowd, QB Josh Portis, DB DeShawn Shead, LB Korey Toomer, and WR Lavasier Tuinei.
Butler was a third-round pick in 2009, but hasn't been the same since suffering a compound leg fracture in 2010. Bradford was unable to make the transition from tailback. Portis was a favorite of coach Pete Carroll, but the team will go with only two quarterbacks.

Deon Butler caught one pass for eight yards in Seattle's Week 14 win over the Rams.
Active for just the second time since coming off the PUP list on November 8, the grab was Butler's first catch of the season. Under contract for only $565,000 in 2012, the former third-round pick should get a chance to earn a roster spot in camp.
