Rashad Jamaal Butler (born February 10, 1983) is a former American football offensive tackle. He was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at the University of Miami.
He was drafted in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. Thought to be a project due to his relative light weight for an NFL offensive tackle, he was inactive for his rookie year. He actually lost weight and was cut by the Panthers after 2007 training camp.
After signing with the Texans, he was discovered to suffer from ulcerative colitis, a chronic medical condition which prevented him from bulking up. Under medical care, Butler was able to regain the lost weight relatively quickly.
