Emmanuel Butler, or is it eBay? Holy & # 39; Bargains & # 39; do with WR vs. TD. Dolphins | saint
Forget the nickname "EB".
According to Saints backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, the nickname of the naughty rookie without Emmanuel Butler is now "eBay."
"We found him on eBay for a special price," Bridgewater said after the 16-13 final loss to the Saints to the Miami Dolphins.

Butler said he does not remember exactly when Bridgewater christened him with the new nickname, but he was first used in the classroom.
"He said:" What's good, eBay? " Butler said. "I looked over and said," eBay? "He said," Yeah, we had to find you on the internet, you're too good not to get drafted and come here as a non-drafted free agent, So we had to find you cheap on the internet on eBay. "1

"Amazing experience," said Butler, as a professional for the first time to score.

Butler's preseason with the saints was "a roller coaster ride". Butler had to give up early and got recognition from coach Sean Payton, who missed out a short time later with an unknown injury and missed the first game in the preseason.
Butler's first action in the preseason contest ran against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he did not catch. A pass he threw bounced off his face mask.
But he crashed into the jets to catch his first pre-season catches. Fast forward to Thursday when he got this touchdown pass.
The saints led briefly in the first half.
"There are times when you will be tall, there are times when you will be low," said Butler. "And that's part of being a professional, it's definitely something I got used to."
He continued, "I've grown so big, this is a great program with so many veterans in the league for so long, they gave me a lot of guidance and they helped me with many different things Concentrate on which I have not focused myself player and as a person. "
As cadre sections emerge, Butler wants to get back some of the missed catches, of course.
But he feels he has done everything he can to put himself in the best position in the 53-man list.
"In the end, I know that I struggled 100 percent every time I was out there," said Butler. "So I leave it in the hands of the coaches, let it happen in Gods hands and whatever happens."
He added, "At the end of the day, this is a business, so treat it like a business you know, there are no hard feelings in this game, ultimately they want the best people on the field.
The Saints gave the Thursday's preseason the final touch of night with a 16-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Payton said on Thursday that Butler had "made a really good impression" on the team and that Butler "has a good uptrend".
Butler ended the preseason with six receptions for 47 yards, a touchdown and a memorable new nickname result.
"It's a good nickname," Butler said with a giggle. "It's definitely one that I think will stick with it."
