Victor Butler #57 of the Dallas Cowboys sacks Quarterback Joe Webb #14 of the Minnesota Vikings at Mall of America Field on August 27, 2011 in Minneapolis, MN.

Unrestricted free agent linebacker Victor Butler, who had played all four years of his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys, agreed to a two-year contract with the New Orleans Saints on Thursday.

Financial terms of the deal are undisclosed.

The 25-year old Butler, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Cowboys, played his college football at Oregon St.

Butler accumulated 89 tackles and 11 sacks in a reserve role over the last four years with the Cowboys, including 25 tackles and three sacks in two starts in 2012, playing for new Saints’ defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Dallas.

The Saints, who are shifting to a new 3-4 defensive scheme under Ryan, were searching for another pass rushing specialist.

Butler, who is 6-foot-2, and weighs 245 pounds, chose the Saints over the recently visited the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, and Philadelphia Eagles.
