Re: Saints trade Stills to the Dolphins

I'm Stills biggest fan and I even love this trade, the Loomis snagged a LB and a 3rd round pick for a WR that was drafted in the 5th round.

Sounds like a New England type trade to me, finally. For once, Saints taken advantage of idiots running a front office of another team. Even if Ellerbe never sees the field, the Saints landed another draft pick, that's huge so now they can deal in the draft and not loose picks in a round. I just hope they don't unload both 1st round picks to move up for a WR since one can be found in Round 2 and Drew will make him look like million bucks too just like he did with Stills

Re: Saints trade Stills to the Dolphins

I dont like his cap hit though. Im assuming they are going to restructure. All in all we pick up a 3rd and Dolphins get a very good WR.

Re: Saints trade Stills to the Dolphins

At first, when the possibility of Still being traded came up, I was like "WTF". Now, after some thought, I dig it. We'll either sign or draft someone and be just fine. We turned a 5th round pick into a 3rd and a position of need player.

Re: Saints trade Stills to the Dolphins

This is a Jeff Ireland influenced move 100%.

Yes, Ellerbe will be restructured.

Don't forget we wanted him coming from Baltimore!

Re: Saints trade Stills to the Dolphins

I don't know what to think, ellerbe was great for the Ravens but I don't know how he was at Miami. To get a third rd pick plus ellerbe seems to be a even swap. I hate to see Kenny Still go but I can understand they trying to improve the defense. No more sacrificing offense for defense, PLEASE!

Not sure what Ellerbe contract is this year after his guarantees are payed but $6.5 and $6ml in the next two years isnt bad

Re: Saints trade Stills to the Dolphins

Dolphins take the cap hit for this year. And it's a very reduced salary for Ellersby for our cap. Another win for us.

Re: Saints trade Stills to the Dolphins

This is a deep WR drafr. I wouldn't be surprised if the 31st Pick in the 1st Round becomes Dorrial Green-Beckham.
