Here's the tweet:

Broedrick Bunkley to Saints: 5 yrs, $25m with $9m fully grntd.

Saints signed DT Brodrick Bunkley to a five-year, $25 million contract with $9 million guaranteed.

With GM Mickey Loomis' suspension not yet implemented, it's business as usual in the Saints' front office as the team stays the course amid bounty scandal discipline. The Broncos were making a "hard" push to re-sign Bunkley as of Tuesday, but the Saints apparently beat Denver's offer. Bunkley has only six sacks in six seasons, but he is an effective one-gap, 4-3 nose tackle. He projects as an upgrade on outgoing Shaun Rogers and Aubrayo Franklin.

You will have to excuse me if I don't wet my pants with excitement!

Loomis doing work regardless. With our losses, Loomis is making sure he prepares us for the season. Didn't think we were actually going to sign him. I wouldn't be surprised if we made another big move.

I wonder what our cap space looks like now, if Goodell didn't take that too... :rolleyes:

Bunkly is just coming into his own. He's one of the "Up and Coming" players the Saints like to sign just as they start to shine. Not to mention he's playing better than Ellis has in his career.

Ellis who?
I hope this guys lights a fire under Ellis.
Ellis should be looking for paper at the end of this season.
He may have his own fire already started, at least I hope so.
