Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jerry Butler was named as the winner of the Brian Dawkins Lifetime Achievement Award on Saturday night.
This award is given to "honor a former Clemson Tigers football player each year with a lifetime achievement award for performance on the field along with contributions in leadership and community service," according to the Clemson Tigers website.
After a successful career at Clemson, Butler was drafted by the Bills as the fifth overall pick in the 1979 NFL draft. Butler spent his entire career with Buffalo catching 278 receptions for 4,301 yards and 29 touchdowns from 1979 to 1986. The receiver was named to the Pro Bowl in 1980.
Currently, Butler is employed by the Chicago Bears as their director of player development.null
