According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens were happy with Dannell Ellerbe’s work ethic, but were ultimately hesitant to pay him because of his party habits. Miami got a good, young player when it signed linebacker Dannell Ellerbe to a five-year, $35 million contract earlier this offseason, but there has to be some concern within the organization. Ellerbe improved his work ethic and practice habits while in Baltimore, but he did like to party and there is going to be a lot of temptation in South Beach. I really hope Ellerbe is successful down in Miami, but now that he got paid a fat contract and will be living in South Beach, that can only spell trouble.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
