True Dat.. however Julian Edelman was not offered either and he is a decent pick up.
Pats get Julian Edelman for bargain price | ProFootballTalk

I guess there are exceptions.

He's certainly worth the vet minimum. He's solid. He just hasn't been the impact player the Saints hoped for when they drafted him so highly. They have done worse.

Effort is all about heart. You can have a great career in college, come into the league and be a big flop, and sometimes it's just because you're over matched. Some guys try hard but just don't match up physically in the NFL. I'm not going to say Sedrick hasn't tried at all, but he has lacked a consistent motor. That IS about heart. I don't know what else you would think that comes from.

You can't have just some heart, you have to be all in. That goes for everything.

Re: Sedrick Ellis in contact with Saints

Unless you're coaching or playing with Ellis, I don't think you can question his motivation.

We are talking about a guy who plays DT here. I'm not gushing over sacks from a DT. Haloti Nagta is arguably the best DT in the NFL and he had 5 sacks last year...

What we want from Ellis is to control the line of scrimmage? Can he do that with his size? I haven't seen it too often. BUT what he can do - as Danno pointed out - is rotate in and be a rushing DT (if there is such a thing) on passing downs.

League min. Prove it in camp. If not, no harm. I don't see why people are having issues with this.

Re: Sedrick Ellis in contact with Saints

As much as i want to see him gone,we have all the cards for this deal.
1 year with a team option for a second for a small salary,incentives extension.The lack of offers this summer may well have lit a fire under his backside.The players have got used to getting deals elsewhere if the didnt play as well as they good.That has stopped,not many teams paying big bucks on long term deals for FA.
He is serviceable as a back up at the very least.Fill as many holes predraft then draft who you want,not who you need.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
