Butler, appearing on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM's "Off with the Helmets" show, poked fun at "Sexy Sanchez" and gave the Jets' quarterback a gentle jab when asked if Sanchez was good.
"Oh yeah, good looking," Butler cracked. "How could you not want to sack a guy like that?"
The Cowboys open the 2011 season against the Jets on Sunday night.
Butler, whose Oregon State team upset Sanchez's top-ranked USC squad in 2008, eagerly awaits the opportunity for a little post-sack interaction with the celebrity quarterback.
"If the refs give me enough time, maybe I'll whisper a couple of sweet nothings in his ear," Butler said. "I have his GQ if he wants to sign it for me. I'd really like that. I really want him to sign the cover of this for me. It'd be nice."
