Dannell Ellerbe gets $35 million contract from Dolphins, leaving Ravens, source says
Linebacker is an unrestricted free agent

By Aaron Wilson The Baltimore Sun 5:46 PM EDT, March 12, 2013

Unrestricted free agent inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is leaving the Ravens.

Ellerbe has reached an agreement with the Miami Dolphins on a five-year, $35 million contract, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
Ellerbe had been in talks with the Ravens throughout Tuesday, but they were unable to reach a compromise.

Now, Ellerbe heads to the Dolphins, a move that may cost incumbent linebacker Karlos Dansby his job.

A former undrafted free agent, Ellerbe had expressed hope to the Baltimore Sun last week that he might rejoin the Ravens.

He recorded a career-high 89 tackles and 4.5 sacks last season, leading the Ravens with nine tackles in a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

“There's always a chance, and that's what I'm hoping will happen,” Ellerbe said last week. “The Ravens are a perfect situation for me. Hopefully, it's a perfect situation for me to sign on the dotted line.”

However, it didn't work out. Now, the Ravens have a big hole in the middle of their defense with Ellerbe gone and Ray Lewis retired.
Keep up the good work Matt Moore!

Hey Peets!(Short for Pizza but if ya put "Hey Pizz" It don't sound right so Hey Peets!) Yeah I had a feeling Dansby wouldn't be kept when he made that big fuss after we cut Ocho Cinco. He was all right but nuttin spectacular. Plus he just didn't make enough big plays. 
Keep up the good work Matt Moore!
