Kelly Butler is in a fight for his professional life in football.

The 6-foot-8, 330-pound former Union High School and Purdue University standout is engaged in a battle for the starting right tackle position with the Canadian Football League’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The second-year CFL lineman, who also played for the NFL’s Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns, isn’t backing down from the challenge.

 

Barry J. Sanders, son of former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders, told The Oklahoman that though he was at Florida State earlier this week for a football camp, it doesn’t mean the Seminoles are at the top of his list and that he is still no closer to announcing where he’ll play college football.

A model for the Ravens and Ngata could be the contract signed by Ndamukong Suh with the Detroit Lions last year. The second overall player selected in the first round in 2010, Suh signed a five-year, $68 million contract that includes $40 million guaranteed.
