Figured this would happen but I wonder what the hit is? I hope it's under 3 million. He needs to prove he can stay healthy before spending to much.

Re: LB Dannell Ellerbe restructures

good move but I don't think this changes their plans for improving linebacker this offseason or in the draft

Saints restructure LB Dannell Ellerbe's contract
by Kristian Garic posted Feb 10 2016 12:01PM

​The Saints continue moving money around ahead of the start of the league year on March 9th. The Saints restructured LB Dannell Ellerbe's contract, dropping his base salary to $1.8 million dollars this season, according to a league source.

Ellerbe was previously scheduled to count $5.9 million against the salary cap if he remained on the roster after today (The third day of the waiver period). The Saints dropped the base salary, and freed up some much needed cash.

That's one hell of a deal! I really like him at that price.

I liked him when he was on the field smart veteran guy he is injury prone but so was ivory n he had a pro bowl year this year, maybe we can see that out of him next season... Solid backup either way it goes...

I don't believe that we will go after a mid rounder to back him up. We will target a high draft pick to be the starter and he will be the veteran savvy backup. Maybe his body will hold up better that way.

If Ireland can land another smart athletic LB'er in the draft who can stay on the field we will have done an about face in the secondary.

Well, I hope they draft one and sign one in free agency. That would give us 4 WLB. And frankly I hope all 4 make the roster.

Worth every penny!! I do see getting 2 more lb.'ers now that Hawthorn and Humber are gone.

There will be three if not four available at pick 12 in the draft. Mack, Lee, Smith and Spence
