The Saints’ contracts for linebacker Jayrone Elliott and wide receiver Josh Huff were disapproved by the league, according to the league’s transactions wire. It’s not immediately clear why the deals were voided, but Herbie Teope of the Times-Picayne (Twitter link) notes that the Saints were at the 90-man roster maximum before agreeing to deals with both players. It’s possible that...

NFC North: Predicting each team’s impact player for week 6

The NFC North is full of story lines through the first five weeks of the NFL season. Four players that I felt would perform well for their teams from the division last week didn’t live up to my expectations. Green Bay Packers defender Jayrone Elliott only accumulated three tackles and now has 12 tackles on the season. Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett caught only four passes...

Seahawks claim refs made mistake on 4th quarter fumble

In an ironic twist of fate, the Seattle Seahawks think the referees jobbed them in last night’s "Sunday Night Football" matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Head coach Pete Carroll and his players believe the refs made the wrong call on a fumble in the fourth quarter with the game on the line. Russell Wilson had just thrown an interception to Packers lineman Jayrone Elliott, who...

Time To Let Elliott Loose

Despite recording 5 sacks last preseason and having a body made for getting after the quarterback, Jayrone Elliott was used as a pass rusher a mere 29 times in 2014. That number needs to go up. A lot. The former Toledo star isn’t going to be the next Justin Houston, but he certainly has the potential to be better than Nick Perry and Mike Neal, who were allowed to pin their ears back...

Elliott Will Be Tough To Supplant

For each of the past six seasons, an undrafted free agent outside linebacker has made the 53-man roster. From Cyril Obiozor to Frank Zombo to Vic So’oto to Dezman Moses to Andy Mulumba to Jayrone Elliott, it’s been as much a part of summer as a Jimmy Buffet concert. Will this unlikely streak continue? My early guess is no. In other summers, players as talented as LSU’s Jermauria...

Will Jayrone Elliott be a Flash in the Pan or a Diamond in the Rough?

He was far from the most coveted undrafted free agent the Packers signed after the draft, but up to this point, there hasn’t been an undrafted free agent who has made more of an impression than Jayrone Elliot. At Toledo, where he played defensive end, Elliott had 16 sacks, including 9 his senior season. He earned first team 2013 All-MAC honors, along with Buffalo’s Khalil Mack, who...
