Ellerbe is probably the team’s top priority after Joe Flacco. If the team is unable to re-sign him, he’s not projected to be one of the premier names on the market, and will likely come out a manageable contract for any team under the salary cap.

With the Bengals having the most available salary cap, he would be a great player to bring in and improve a Bengals linebacker unit that hasn’t provided much in terms of pass rushing or pass coverage for that matter. Bring Ellerbe in to start on the outside, and if Vontaze Burfict fails to adjust to the middle, where he’s expected to be moved this offseason, then you already have his replacement lined up, and Burfict can move back to the outside where he led the team in tackles last year.
