The Saints traded wide receiver Kenny Stills to the Dolphins in exchange for linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round pick, per the team's official website.

He has 95 catches for 1,572 yards and eight scores in his two-year run with the Saints. He still has two years and $1.26 million left on his rookie deal.

Ellerbe agreed to restructure his contract to help New Orleans with their cap situation. He had three years and $20.95 left on his current contract before the deal. Terms of his contract restructure weren't made public.

Report: Dolphins likely to release LB Dannell Ellerbe
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is likely to be released by the Dolphins, according to the Miami Herald.  It is said the move is going to be made in order to create cap space.

Ellerbe, 29, played in only one game in 2014 due to a hip injury that landed him on injured reserve.  He played in 15 games the year prior managing 101 total tackles and two interceptions.

The team has already released Phillip Wheeler and Ellerbe will be the latest Dolphin linebacker thrown into the free agency pool.
