To hear Arians tell it, general manager Steve Keim has enjoyed a real solid offseason, starting with the under-the-radar addition of former Cowboys wideout Brice Butler.

I love the Brice Butler pickup, Arians said recently, via the Arizona Republic’s Bob McManaman. He’s a tall deep threat. He does what Michael Floyd did a big, tall guy that can take the top off (of a defense)…. I don’t know why Real Cheap Jerseys he didn’t get more time last year with Dallas, but the fans out here are going to love this kid.

He could be the No. 2 guy behind Larry.

Butler signed a modest two-year, $2.6 million contract in April after catching 15 passes for 317 yards and three touchdowns last season. Although the 28-year-old was stuck behind Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley on Dallas’ depth chart the past few years, he has shown a knack for big plays in timely moments.

Christian Villanueva (R), 31 percent, San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants (LHP Andrew Suarez): All Villanueva has done this season is hit.328/.379/.885 versus left-handed pitching. No big deal. Villanueva has Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap been an inconsistent source of production, but he’s proved he can do damage in the right matchups. Suarez and his.358 wOBA allowed to righty batters looks like such a matchup.
