    If used correctly that still won't be good....guy needs to play 35- 40 snaps per game rotating out to stay fresh & healthy all year

    I'll believe 20 snaps per game when I see it. As far as paying him "Too Much" you can't define a players worth based only on what his snaps are. Ellis is a piece of a puzzle that this defensive line needed to have put in place. He's very seldom injured and this is a one year deal in which players are always given a little more than if they signed a 4, 5 or 6 year deal. This guy sounds like another jilted NY Jets fan. It's funny because everybody in NY was kissing his buttt last year and all of the sudden he's worthless.  By the way Crimini, we can afford to throw another extra million in certain directions because we know how to manage a cap properly. Maybe if the Jets had more spare cash to spend they'd have Asomugha on their team right now.

    other than the game against the Pats, Ellis wasn't very good last year. he had one sack in his last dozen games I believe. I think he is on the bubble with Warren back in the fold.
    Jets offer wasn't meant to embarrass Ellis, nor was it a cap isue. They simply offered what they thought he was worth

    That's 20 snaps a game he wont be available for the Jets.  So, good.  We'll take whatever Bill thinks he should give us.  Its quite a luxury to be able to bring a veteran like Shaun Ellis in to help man our front, and still have roughly $11mil on the cap.

    Doesn't matter. If he's productive in the post season that's all anyone cares about or will remember.

    Got to admit I thought this signing (at that price) was a move this team has been put on a pedestal for NOT making in the last 7 years or so. Paying an aging veteran 4 million for the year? Yikes! He better play more than 20 snaps a game or those 20 snaps better be damn good. If it doesn't work out, it's only a one year thing, but you wonder what else we could of had for that cash. You also have to think....we've concentrated on "value" and planning for the future/lockout for so long, is this the reward for all that fiscal responsibility? Because if it is...hmmm. 

    Hopefully he plays a pivotal role. He's got very underrated pass rush production out of his career, I just wish he were5 years younger.

    I think they probably ovepaid him but it was also the take him off the Jets factor. The Eagles just took Steve Smith from the Giants. That was blatant and they aren't even sure when he can contribute.

    Dude, if Ellis shows up for just one play-off game and eats some QB (e.g. Sanchez) it will have been soooo worth it.

    Look at it this way.

    1) It's a 1 year deal.
    2) The Pats have the cap space - they're not unable to sign another key player because of Ellis
    3) It's not your money, it's Kraft's
    4) Ellis can play DT to OLB - versatility is key and I'd rather have him than Warren (Gerrard not Ty)

    Is this guy even practicing yet? Who says we even keep him?  What I'm saying is that there are so many DLinemen is camp, that some have to be jettisoned at some point and the question is, who?  If Ellis doesn't practice or participate in camp or pre-season, do that PATS keep him based on history, especially since they have so many options that they are looking at?  Who knows?  Certainly not us.  Only Bill knows

    In Response to Re: rich crimini espn ny, expects ellis to be worth 20 snaps a game (ie 4 million is too much) "shocked if he got that" : Who are the Jets to lecture NE on talent evaltuation and cap management anywa?   Anywa? I'll tell you anywa. The team that had Ellis for his entire career and watched him decline the last few. The team that smacked around the best drafting, best QB, best coach 14-2 team to push their playoff record since the big choke in the SB to o-FER three years.  4 mil for 20 snaps per game... question is when will Ellis be off the PUP? game 5?  game 6?  Who knows.  Regardless of how much Ellis plays, he'll immediately bring some sort of credibility to that awful line Bill has neglected while 'rebuilding'.  Done rebuilding yet?

    It was actually a $1.5 million deal with $2.5 million in bonuses.

    To a point I respect what the jets have done the past two seasons, but really what they've done is nothing...they haven't won anything. We haven't won anything either. Between the two, I'll take my chances with Belichick and Brady. Rex is probably a decent coach, but there are many of those, in the end you have to do it for more than two seasons. Do they win this year? I'd say no. And if that's the case...old Rexy goes back in the misfit toys case of average everyday coaches that don't really make a difference either way...he'll be the one trying to impress the dentist with his super creative one liners.

    I think Crimini is assuming that the Pats are switch to a 4-3 defense, which would mean that Ellis plays DT behind Haynesworth and Wilfork. In a 3-4, which we'll stay as, Ellis plays a DE and would account for 70% of the snaps. 

    He's, inarguably, the best 3-4 DE on the team. No way BB stick him on the shelf. I think Haynesworth is more likely to play 20 snaps a game than Ellis is.

    The Ellis signing will prove its worth (or lack thereof) over time.  Not entirely sure where the allegation came from that BB is considered infallible.  I certainly don't think he is.  However, I think he's the best coach we've ever seen in these parts and as good a talent evaluator as there is.  As a Pats fan, there's no one I'd rather see as HC or GM and it would appear that Robert Kraft agrees.  That's good enough for me, the ersatz GMs on this board notwithstanding.
