The story about Jake Butt will always be 'what might have been?' He was an incredible talent in college at Michigan but a knee injury suffered in his last collegiate game has robbed him of his effectiveness in the NFL. Butt had first-round talent but he fell to Round 5 in 2017 due to this knee injury. He missed his entire rookie season but was able to see the field in 2018. Butt caught eight passes for 85 yards that season in three games before getting hurt again. He was on his way back (again) last year when another knee injury knocked him out for the entire 2019 season. Butt is unlikely to make the 53-man roster in 2020 as the team may finally cut ties.
