"We're going to honor (Butler's) request," he said. "But we're not going to make a bad deal."

Thibodeau went on to say he "didn't want to keep talking about that," and instead wanted to talk about the players at training camp Tuesday. 

"First day is always exciting, a little choppy... but that's why you need to move forward quickly," he said.
