The Seattle Seahawks have signed wide receiver Deon Butler, their third-round draft choice, to a multiyear contract.

The team announced Friday that Penn State’s career receptions leader became the fifth of Seattle’s seven draft picks to sign.

Presumed starting outside linebacker Aaron Curry, the fourth overall choice out of Wake Forest, and second rounder Max Unger, a center from Oregon, remain unsigned.
Rookies are due into training camp on Thursday.

Butler was the 91st overall pick in the April draft. He had 179 receptions at Penn State, finished second in school history with 2,771 receiving yards, and third with 22 touchdowns.
When we left the Seahawks minicamp on May 2nd we couldn’t stop talking about Aaron Curry but the most impressive was Deon Butler.

All the way back to Whidbey Island we found ourselves into very deep discussions about the newest 3rd round receiver from Penn State, he was so impressive at the Seahawks minicamp that small groups of not only reporters but even Seahawks players gathered and no doubt discussed the Speed they just witnessed from this young gun.

let’s put it like this, you hear alot about 4.3 40 speed, but it’s totally different when you see it on the field in game-time or in person, this kid can run and I’m so sure he will be successful in the NFL, I’m willing to bet my house on it!
