    Makes sense.

    Haynesworth basically replaces Seymour, but NE still needed somebody to replace Warren. Ellis along with the Pats DL depth, should be able to do that.

    Interesting move. Will be interesting to see what he has left and how BB coaxes that from him.

    It's a good signing in that Ellis can also spell Albert and Vince when we are in the 4-3 on Running Downs as well as any down we are in 3-4.

    Great depth on the D-Line with Albert, Vince, Wright, Ellis and a combination of the young guys

    This is a good move, makes for a real dog fight along the defensive line.

    If Ellis makes the team, he will be invaluable for gameplanning against the Jets and Rexy..

    I thought Ellis played very well against the Pats last year. A lot of pressure in two games, and commanding a double team in the third game to open up lanes for someone else. Based on that - can't say I saw all that much else of him last year - this appears to be a very good addition for the Pats. Also, he looks like somebody that could be productive in either a 3-4 or a 4-3.

    I'll say! How many positions do you think these 12 guys are battling for?

    Brace
    Cohen
    Deaderick
    Ellis
    Haynesworth
    Love
    Pryor
    Richard
    Weston
    Wilfork
    Williams
    Wright

    I'm not expecting a lot out of him and am actually dissapointed to have to grab a player from the Jester's scrap heap to get the help BB thinks we need.

    Really kind of a "meh" to me.

    Looks like Brace is a goner if Ellis still has a good year left in him.

    I've always like Ellis. Interesting note: I think Ellis was the player selected with the 1st round pick that the Patriots gave up for hiring BB.

    I may be wrong about that but that is how I recall it.

    Why do you say that? The Pats still need depth on the D-line. Adding Ellis doesn't change that. Deaderick hasn't proved himself to be better than anyone.

    You are correct. This was mentioned when Ellis first came in for a visit.

    This is a good move. Haynesworth is not exactly the star of camp so far and
    Ellis brings familiarity of the Jets.

    The Jets get told FU once more.

    Shaun Ellis spurns Jets, heads to New England - Rotoworld.com


    Patriots agreed to terms with DE Shaun Ellis, formerly of the Jets.

    Offered the veteran's minimum by the Jets, it's unclear if Ellis' Patriots contract includes any guaranteed money. Ellis had clearly lost a step last season, but as evidenced by his monster playoff performance against the team he is now joining, he can still be a productive player. He's an excellent depth signing for what should be an improved Patriots' defensive line.

    Love this signing! Ellis absolutely DESTROYED us and our O-Line in that Divisional Game. 1 year deal, he has plenty left in the tank!

    I agree DaBruinz, too early for anyone to give up on Brace, he's showed some flashes and he provides great depth.

    I know we needed the depth anyway but I hope this isn't an indication of some kind of concern over Haynesworth (injury?).

    If Ellis makes the team, things are looking bad for Brace/Deaderick. I think Love's job is somewhat secure as one of the few pure nose tackles on the team.

    yep, not to mention with the depth we have, his legs will be even fresher come the end of the season

    BB will probably use Ellis like Ted Washington. Just so many snaps per game to keep him fresh in a situational role.

    Whats also nice is that Ellis has seen it all and should be a great mentor along with Wilfork for the younger NE D lineman. When Ellis's time is up, hopefully a young guy should be ready to step up.

    I like it. We don't need him to do much, just take up some space and create lanes for the LB's. If he can put up number's similar to his past couple years it will be worth the signing. He doesn't need to be a stud.

    This is a good move for you guys if its for depth purposes only. I'm not sure what your d-line looks like right now, but I wouldn't expect much if you want him to start a full season. As much as I like Ellis (one of my fav all time Jets), he was average at best last year, with his one incredible game obviously coming against you guys. He's just really getting up their in age, and doesn't have that edge speed that he used to possess.

    A good depth signing nonetheless.

    With the signing of Shaun Ellis i see 2 things we get from this deal:


    1. Adds more depth and vet exp to our dline. He seems to step it up in BIG games.

    2. A guy who is gonna be more ticked off at one of our divisional rivals for showing no loyalty to him. You think bb had that in the back of his head at all with this signing? Prob not, but i am gonna think that :rocker: :rocker:

    Oh also that forum one of you guys posted for the jets is really making me enjoy me coffee and this signing even more :singing:
