    The Pats offered him an one year deal last year. I wonder if they offer him another one a year later. The guy had a decent year last year. Could be a situational edge rusher.

    I would be on board with this. Rather have him than Green, Jason Taylor or Porter.

    They also released Javon Walker. If this keeps up, AL won't have much of a team by training camp.. but that might be an improvement for them..

    the pats maybe better off with bring back Derrick Burgess, he is 3 years younger and has a year in the system.

    I say bring both in. Adalius should be leaving soon so he can help fill that role.

    7 sacks - not too shabby. I'd definitely sign him to a one-year deal. Don't think he and Derrick Burgess are mutually exclusive.

    Did Walker ever recover from blowing out his knee? I feel kinda bad for the guy; seems like his career has gone off the rails ever since Darrent Williams died in his arms... can't imagine how messed up that must have been.

    Will he be under 2.5mm per, if so, sign him for 3 years with 3mmG. At worst it's a 3MM mistake, but the guy's got a lot left.

    He probably would have come here last year but the Raiders just offered him crazy money if i remember, something like 5 million.

    Ellis was a Parcells guy when he was in Dallas, and when Wade became the coach he talked about wanting to play for a winner alot... don't think he respected Wade, plus Spencer was taking his place. Obv, when someone gives you crazy money that all changes... this is a signing i could see.

    7 sacks, how many were because of double teams on Seymour?

    Forget Seymour, Ellis has averaged 7 sacks in his career and has averaged 8 in his last 8 years. He's 34 so who knows how much he'll have left but 7 sacks was lower than his previous two years so forget the Seymour love.

    This might be a stupid question but I'm not sure what position he plays for us.

    He's 6'6 265, is he a Jarvis Green type pass rushing 3-4 de? Or can he play some 3-4 olb?

    if I remember correctly he was a down linemen early in his career but he was a 34 OLB in Dallas. Not sure where he played last year as I didn't watch the Raiders that much.

    Not much out there so I see no reason not to kick the tires here. He and or Taylor plus a rookie to go with TBC and then the OLB position would not look so bad.

    Once a pass rusher, always a pass rusher (until your body gives out). Some of it is just instinct.

    Waiting for PatJew to weigh in..........:rocker:
