Jets Free Agent Signings

Jets offer Shaun Ellis 1-year deal, McKnight struggles

Admin - August 3, 2011

According to DE Shaun Ellis' agent, the Jets have offered Ellis a 1-year deal for veteran's minimum $910K. Ellis, 34, has spent his entire career with the Jets after being drafted in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He missed only 6 games in 11 seasons, registering 343 tackles, 72.5 sacks, 12 forced fumbles and 1 interception. Ellis' agent indicated that his client is currently weighing his options but would like nothing more than to end his career as a New York Jet.

Earlier today head coach Rex Ryan stated that the team hadn't closed the door on WR Braylon Edwards who would be welcomed back if he lowered his asking price. Edwards, meanwhile, is visiting with the San Francisco 49ers who might offer him a 1-year deal.

The Jets also conducted another training camp practice this afternoon. RB Joe McKnight, who had several fumbles in training camp last year, fumbled for the first time in this training camp - took him just 3 days. The team had their first training camp skirmish. During a second-team 11-on-11 OL Chris Stewart scuffled with a member of the defense.
