Ellis is not starter caliber in the NFL. But at the league min, he's more than valuable as a back up / role player.

2010 he was solid. Since then, rarely injured. He'll be 28 going into the season. Money makes sense, let's get him in camp and see what he's got left to prove.

You're right, it is rarely the case. Even so, that is what you pick a guy 7th overall to do. He came no where close. I'm not really high on him as depth, either. We have had an atrocious run defense for as long as I can remember. He's been starting for 4 of those years. To my knowledge, he's never played in a 3-4.

I thought it was a foregone conclusion that he would not be back in any capacity. I guess it doesn't matter, though. I don't see him making the team.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Ellis at big money? Hell No!

Ellis at vet minumum? Hell Yes!

He'd probably be just fine as part of a 3 man DT rotation.

Re: Sedrick Ellis in contact with Saints

I wouldn't mind seeing him eat space at DE either. He'd make a versatile backup. There's really nothing to lose with these types of moves we've done lately. Leonhard, Smith, and possibly Ellis... if we can make them relevant again at the league minimum, it's a winner. If not, chop them, move on, and act like it never happened.

Why would you think its an issue of the heart? I've never heard anyone say his heart is the problem.
