Saints cut Ellerbe's base salary by $7.4 million

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ellerbe was a dud in Miami. But worst case, he's equivalent to Lofton. Ireland must really trust Ellerbe....

Re: Saints cut Ellerbe's base salary by $7.4 million

Okay, I was incorrect. One good season, one entire season injured:

Ellerbe finished his first season in Miami with 101 tackles, 2 INTS, 2 fumbles recovered, and 1 sack as the starting middle linebacker. In 2014, Ellerbe was moved to outside linebacker but suffered a season-ending hip injury in the first quarter of their Week 1 game against New England.
But still, an even swap for Curtis Lofton in my mind. Veteran depth, Super Bowl win, all that stuff helps..

There is one problem with Jeff Ireland the GM. He brings very good expensive players but they don't fit in their scheme. Ellerbe is one, than you have Wallace. Deep threat expensive WR help for dink and dunk "alex smith 2.0" QB.

Re: Saints cut Ellerbe's base salary by $7.4 million

Ellerbe is a veteran coming back to a 3-4 playing on the inside where he belongs according to what I've read. If he can cover better than Lofton then we've addressed a problem area.

Regardless there are several good ILB'ers in the draft and I want two of them. We need to fix our triangle in a 3-4 and get that big NT(Shelton) and both ILB'ers who can play their assignments with their natural skill set. I'm tired of moving players around because they don't exactly fit the role.

#Loomising is real.

So if Ellerbe can replicate even his 2013 season as ILB, we'll be okay.

Draft OLB, ILB, OL and WR baby!!

The title of this thread needs to be changed to Loomis coerces Miami to cut Ellerbe's base salary by $7.4 million.

What a frickin' great move!
