NFL Rumors: New Orleans Saints To Release A Defensive Tackle
 
And the choir said, "Amen!"

************************************************** *******

The New Orleans Saints have been making a lot of moves this off-season but they are far from done. With the addition of new defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan, the Saintsí defensive makeover is in full swing. With Ryan at the helm there are sure to be some players added but some players could be on the way out. One player that could be done in New Orleans is defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis.

Ellis was a top 10 draft pick back in 2008 when the Saints took him with the seventh-overall pick. However, Ellis never lived up to his potential and with his rookie contract expired he most certainly will not be back with the Saints. With the Saints switching to a 3-4 defensive alignment Ellis does not seem to fit what the Saints want to do on defense.

For his career Ellis has made 173 total tackles to go along with 12.5 career sacks. However, in the past two seasons Ellis has only made 0.5 sacks in 31 games and has proven to be an ineffective pass rusher. With the Saintsí new defensive scheme an effective pass rusher is exactly what the doctor ordered and Ellis does not fit the bill.

I do not see the Saints bringing back Ellis for next season and maybe another team will be willing to take a chance on him. If the Saints let go of Ellis then maybe they are looking for an upgrade at the defensive tackle position. Perhaps a change of scenery will do Ellis some good and give him an opportunity to revive his career.

Finally, now a few more that don't get their job done and we might get back to having a better D.

When he held out - I knew we were screwed...

Ellis is an excellent lesson in when you don't get the guy you want, don't make a stupid trade for second best to console yourself...

They don't need to release him. He is a free agent. They can just not resign him.

Can we make a note to avoid USC players from now on?

I don't get the title... why would they release Ellis as he'll be out of contract in a months time and there won't be any bonuses kicking in between now and then which could explain a early release from the roster?
