New Orleans Saints Rumors: Team Expected to Let Go of Two Defensive Linemen
 
The New Orleans Saints continue to work their way under the salary cap and with the restructuring of defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley’s contract, the team is well on their way. The team still has a lot of work to do to get under the cap so it would make sense to not bring back some players.
The Saints have already cut ties with some players, and more players will either be cut or not re-signed. Two players that might not be re-signed are defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis and defensive end Turk McBride.
Ellis is essentially a top-ten draft bust that never panned out for the Saints. Ellis was selected by the Saints with the seventh overall pick back in 2008 and has not done much for the team during his tenure. He has only recorded 12.5 sacks, and has never been the dynamic pass rusher the Saints hoped he could be.
Furthermore, Ellis is set to be an unrestricted free agent and it seems like a no-brainer that he will not be re-signed. Also, the Saints have not had any contract talks with him, nor have they had talks with unrestricted free agent McBride for that matter.

Finally. Ellis needed to go two years ago. He may be one of our biggest busts since Sullivan.

I can see why you would want to compare Ellis and Sullivan but IMHO thats not really fair. Sullivan was HORRIBLE in every way, attitude, shape, play etc. Ellis is just not as good as we had hoped. If he had been a 4th round pick he would be ok and some team will surely want him in a rotation at DT in a 4-3. He is a good player, just not a great one.

How can you "free up cap space" by not re-signing players who are not using any cap space in the upcoming season?!

Stopped reading this non-sense right there.

They have no earthly idea of what a draft bust is.

Don't demean the concept of Sully=Bust by remotely putting Ellis in the same category. At least Ellis played and played hard. Sully's most aggressive move was on the sausage terrine at the Dome Buffet.

I'd resign him for the minimum with lots of incentives. Better deal than he'd get from other teams. Considering the budget, we're not going to attract anyone better.
