Saints and Ellis Inching Closer to a Deal?

Word is the Saints and first-round draft pick Sedrick Ellis may be on the verge of getting a deal done.  The Biloxi Sun Herald reported today that a deal could be struck within the next few days. “I think it’s getting closer,” coach Sean Payton said Saturday at camp.  One holdup could be the number 8 pick, Derrick Harvey, and what the Jags end up giving him.  At the 7 spot, Ellis does not want to undervalue what he is worth.  Eugene Parker is Ellis’ agent, and he may look to get the rookie locked up now that he had another big client – Bears KR Devin Hester, signed on Sunday with the Bears with a fresh four-year deal.  Right now Ellis is the highest draft pick unsigned.
