Brad Butler’s sudden retirement left a lot of his teammates shocked, and while he’ll be missed by the Bills, the players know there’s one part of the NFL family that won’t be shedding tears over his departure.
Bills guard Eric Wood knows the NFLPA reps that visit NFL players on each of the 32 teams for information sessions will be glad he’s not around to challenge them on any number of issues.
“I’m sure the NFLPA guys will love to see him gone because he’d always give them a hard time when they came in,” Wood told Buffalobills.com. “It was just part of his political nature.”
Butler would apparently get into some hearty debates with the NFLPA reps when they were in town and sometimes Butler’s queries and rebuttals put them on their heels.
That quick wit is sure to serve him well in his future pursuits.
