The Chargers’ top offseason priority can be checked off the to-do list.

San Diego signed linebacker Donald Butler to a multi-year deal on Friday. The fourth-year linebacker announced it on Twitter minutes after the two sides agreed to terms. The team later confirmed the deal.

"He was the one who was calling the defense over there," head coach Mike McCoy told U-T San Diego. "He was the voice of the defense on game day. He did a great job, finished strong. Unfortunately, he got the (groin) injury earlier in the season, but I think he did a great job with his leadership."

Butler played in 12 games last season, racking up 84 tackles and an interception.
