San Diego Chargers wide receiver Andre Ellington is a perfect fit for the Chargers’ new offense.
The Saints are likely to go with their traditional 4-3 front, which has been criticized by some of Ellingon’s teammates for its lack of creativity.
Ellingons talent will make him a natural fit with the Chargers, who signed free-agent receiver Roddy White to a three-year, $14.25 million deal, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.
White has had a rough preseason.
He missed the first three games with a torn ACL and suffered a concussion in Week 4.
The Saints’ offense has struggled to produce consistently against defenses that aren’t blitzing, which is why the team signed rookie receiver Brandin Cooks to a five-year contract.
Ellingtons game is the first time he has played in the preseason since suffering the injury in Week 6.
Ethingtons rookie season has been one of the worst in the NFL.
The Chargers gave him a five game suspension for the hit on Saints defensive tackle Cameron Jordan in Week 3.
