Meanwhile, DE Shaun Ellis, who spent his entire NFL career with the Gang Green, has agreed on a 1-year contract with the New England Patriots. In 11 seasons with the Jets Ellis registered 499 tackles (343 solo), 72.5 sacks, 12 forced fumbles and 14 pass defenses. It truly is a full circle for Ellis who was drafted by the Jets with the draft pick that they received from the Pats as compensation for head coach Bill Belichick.
