Sadly, Ellis is viewed as one of the biggest busts of the
2008 NFL Draft class. He made 70 starts with the Saints, but he proved a liability
against the run. While he entered the league viewed as a pass-rushing
specialist, he managed only 12.5 sacks over five seasons.
Ellis is a former first-round pick of the Saints. New
Orleans considered re-signing him prior to the draft, but heâ€™s reportedly faced
a â€ścold marketâ€ť for nearly three months. Beyond the Saints and Patriots, the
Arizona Cardinals were also previously connected to Ellis.
