METAIRIE, La. -- It's hard to consider a guy who helped lead the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl win in 2012 before signing a $35 million contract with the Miami Dolphins as a "sleeper" or "dark horse."

But that's what linebacker Dannell Ellerbe feels like now that he has joined the New Orleans Saints.

The 29-year-old has dipped off the radar a bit, thanks to a pedestrian season in 2013 and a hip injury that sidelined him for 15 games in 2014. Ellerbe almost seemed like an afterthought when he came to New Orleans, along with a third-round draft pick, in a trade for receiver Kenny Stills.

Oh yes baby. You just take your time and be ready when TC arrives. I believe he is the starter we needed on the weak side. Great acquisition.

Yep, back where he excelled on the weakside. Plug in Stephone Anthony at the Mike and I do believe we got us a genuine group of LB's.
