NEW ORLEANS -- ESPN is reporting that former Saints first rounder Sedrick Ellis has retired.

#Bears announce DL Sedrick Ellis did not report to camp and has informed them he plans to retire. Was to provide DT depth.

— Kevin Seifert (@espn_nfcnblog) July 25, 2013
The sudden announcement comes as a surprise, as Ellis is just 28 years old and had recently signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Chicago Bears.

Chicago signed Ellis to provide depth at defensive tackle, but he didn't show for camp.

The Saints selected Ellis with the seventh overall pick in the 2008 draft. He started for the team during its Super Bowl run.

Ellis, who hasn't released a statement, finishes his career with just 12.5 sacks in five seasons.

Re: Sedrick Ellis retires

Basically I am too lazy and have no desire for the game and cannot motivate myself to even earn a paycheck anymore.

Proof he is a bust, proof he is and was lazy
