Sedrick Ellis in contact with Saints

Free agent DT Sedrick Ellis says he has been in contact with the Saints about re-signing.

Ellis, the No. 7 overall pick in the 2008 draft, has drawn zero known interest since free agency opened, but says he's spoke with multiple clubs. Billed as a solid pass rusher coming out of USC, Ellis has just 0.5 sacks over his last 31 games. He shouldn't get much more than the minimum.

Re: Sedrick Ellis in contact with Saints

Maybe vet minimum if he could play the NT position - which I don't know if he can - he's about the same size as Bunkley, so maybe he could provide some depth at that position at least for the camp.

Not excited about him returning, but I do see some logic in the possibility under the right circumstances.

Re: Sedrick Ellis in contact with Saints

I don't get all the negativity about this possible signing? Sure, Ellis was a bust when you look at his production compared to his salary or where he was drafted, but was he not a "serviceable" DT? If he's coming in for the vet minimum, I don't see the harm, nor do I see another DT out there who would be better. If he's just a camp body, then so be it. No harm, no foul.

Re: Sedrick Ellis in contact with Saints

I'll take the 2010 Sedrick Ellis any day. Especially at the league min.

Since his knee and ankle problems in 09, he's started almost every single game. The guy is durable.

At 6'1" 308, can he bulk up and rotate in as NT or trim down and play some DE??

I haven't been so excited since the last time I blinked! Oop, I just blinked again. And just like that, I'm over it.
