Miami ate $3.6M of salary in pre-trade renegotiation of Dannell Ellerbe's contract ($1.5M signing bonus & $2.1M fully GTD 4/1 roster bonus).

Miami has $7.8M of dead money instead of $4.2M for Dannell Ellerbe because of eating $3.6M in a pre-trade contract renegotiation.

If Ellerbe counts just $1.2M against #Saints cap this year, adds to value of trade - AND means Saints are now already under cap.

That Loomis sure is a **** genius.

How could Atlanta Fans like this dude. He signed last season and now wants a trade and new contract. What a POS, right Shred.

he signed 2 yrs ago

but signed a new deal last yr....

and thats nothing new

players want to be traded all the time... do you really believe someone wants to play in Cleveland ??? lol

that has nothing to do with a GM redoing a contract then cutting a player.....

nothing at all

if thats what you were trying to get at, making me look wrong about Loomis and Saints, That ship sailed long ago br , and J Graham, C Lofton, P Thomas, K Stills, B Grubbs and D Sproals were all on Board when it did lol

Hahaha

He signed a new contract last year.

He is asking to be traded and for a new contract. If he had any control, he would go to Atlanta and stick Seattle with 12 mil in dead money.

So They give him a new contract and now he wants to **** on a deal he agreed upon and leave on top of that.

Yeah BIG DIFFERENCE.

it actually is... it's like your work firing you as opposed to you quitting.

HUGE DIFFERENCE.

But I wouldn't expect you to understand that. You, after all, are too busy trying to protect your own interests...

Dude please, you always try to paint Loomis as some sinister figure that operates differently than any other GM in the league, and that is just pure bias and hate towards the Saints.

Example, if i were to ask you why YD cut Harry Douglas, you'd give us a million and one excuses why it was best for the organization, not that TD is some menacing doosh that had no clue what he's doing. When the Saints cut a player there is always some ulterior motive. If Saints fans view Loomis in Black and Gold glasses, tell us where we can get the hate spectacles you look thru

There are way to many details that go on behind the scenes to call it so black and white.

At least when a contract is written up, and then rewritten, and rewritten, the details are public knowledge.

You have NO IDEA what Bennett was told behind closed doors...

How dare They cut him with a year left on his contract. Cutting him to save 3 mill, how pathetic.

It works the same way when it's the organization cutting a player. No one knows What is happening in the facility. So Why is it OK to Ask for a trade and new contract but not OK for a team to Ask for a paycut.

One thinks he outplayed the contract and one thinks the player underperformed

Nor have I ever been a district/regional manager for a company.

He is "requesting" supposedly a trade. Did he say he would never play for them again?

HUGE difference that even you should be able to understand.

Don't be so sensitive.

I'm not sensitive. You can't post in a thread without attacking someones intelligence.

That says a lot about yourself.

Only because he DOESN'T have a choice other than to request. He can't just opt out of the contract
