New Orleans Saints Rumors: Team Expected to Let Go of Two Defensive Linemen

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Plan and simple.... bust or not in someones opinion means nothing to me. Let the dude walk, I am up for half of that side of the ball walk. I know this can't happen but ... I wish that it ...

Re: New Orleans Saints Rumors: Team Expected to Let Go of Two Defensive Linemen

Sentimentally, Ellis has been a Saint for a while. He's been through the rebuilding years and I can understand the soft spot some of you have for him. But really whether you want to call him a bust or not, he hasn't stepped it up to the first round NFL level you'd wish for either by draft number or salary. His production hasn't been even close. Looking at decent/good NT's, they aren't very tall. Most of them are around Sedrick's height, but they pretty much outweigh him by 40+ pounds. They need to be wide. Ellis is not wide or overpowering. Put him in to rest Bunk and you'll see the offense heading right at him every time. He isn't 3-4 material even for free. We need to send him down the road and get a man mountain (Appalachian, not Rocky Mountain style) in there.
