Earlier this week NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Saints were open to trading nearly anyone on their roster. He wasn't kidding.
Yahoo! Sports first reported the news.
Stills, who turns just 23 in April, provides the Dolphins with a speedster who caught 63 passes for 931 yards and three touchdowns last season in New Orleans.
The swap is bit of a head-scratcher for the Saints who continue to dump offensive talent and takes another weapon away from Drew Brees. New Orleans added C.J. Spiller to a backfield with Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson on Friday, indicating coach Sean Payton will focus on a bolstered ground-game in 2015.
Loomis said he wanted to add players on defense this offseason. Bringing in corner Brandon Browner and adding Ellerbe is a start, but the linebacker missed most of the 2014 season due to injury. Rapoport reports that Ellerbe has agreed to restructure his contract -- due more than $8.4 million in base salary in 2015 -- to help free up cap space in New Orleans.
The trade also gives the Saints two first-round picks, a second and two thirds in the upcoming NFL draft.
This offseason has been a wild, depressing ride for Saints fans that likely still has one or two more dips left.
