Butler, 28, spent 2015 training camp with the Lions before rejoining the team as a free agent midway through the season. He appeared in the final eight games of the season and finished with three total tackles. A seven-year NFL veteran, Butler was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fifth round of the 2010 draft.

11/15/15 - CB Crezdon Butler tops the list of unsung heroes for the Lions. Butler, a sixth-year pro out of Clemson, signed as a free agent Saturday when the Lions placed reliable veteran CB Rashean Mathis on injured reserve. With the Packers trailing 18-16 and going for two with 32 seconds to go, MVP QB Aaron Rodgers went at Butler. Butler, however, ripped the ball out of the hands of Packers WR Davante Adams to preserve the lead. "We played physical," Butler said. "We didn't want to sit back and let the receivers get off their routes. We didn't want them to have timing throws. We were looking to get up in their faces fast. We didn't want him (Rodgers) to control the game. We wanted to control him."
