New Orleans Saints cut Dannell Ellerbe's base salary by $7.4 million

New Orleans Saints linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, acquired last week in a trade for Kenny Stills, agreed to slice his 2015 base salary by more than $7 million, according to NFLPA records.

Ellerbe's base salary will be $1.1 million instead of $8.5 million in 2015. He also agreed to amend his 2016 salary from $6.45 million to $4.1 million and his 2017 salary from $6 million to $4.1 million, records show. Ellerbe does not appear to have any significant bonuses in 2015, except for $100,000 in what is likely a workout bonus.

blah blah blah

The Saints have $2.89 million in space under the 2015 salary cap, according to the NFLPA. That's enough to add the contract of new running back C.J. Spiller.

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

Be interested too see what guaranteed money and bonuses are there.

Either way i liked the trade. I really respect the Ravens(not Model) but the way the teams is run and the way they had the vets in the locker room that kept everything in check and kept them hungry and fighting each year. Wether you liked Ray Lewis or not he lead that team well,as did Reed. Im hoping some of that experience rubbed off on Ellerbe and he can take that role with Browner can give this defense some grit. If Fig Newton tried that cr@p he pulled in the endzone last year i have a feeling that he would be picking the grass out his teeth on the next play.

Im really hoping this team starts getting the rep of a nasty team. i don't want to be a team that people like,i want to be a team people ont want to play

It's nice to see Ellerbe excited to play for the Saints and willing to help out to make the team better

If he starts, he either proved his worth, or the Saints missed in the draft. He was quality player for the Ravens but he had alot of talent around him.
