Saints trade Kenny Stills to Dolphins for Dannell Ellerbe

The New Orleans Saints traded fast wide receiver Kenny Stills to the Miami Dolphins for disappointing linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round draft pick. Stills, 22, had 63 catches for 931 yards and three touchdowns last season for the Saints. Ellerbe replaces Curtis Lofton at middle linebacker. Ellerbe has restructured his contract, down from $8.4 million in base salary for 2015. The Saints have two first-round picks, a second-round pick and two third-round picks in the draft.
