Shaun Ellis

    Re: Shaun Ellis

    1) apparently a great locker room guy.  and tough as nails (according to Ryan)
    2) you sign him away from your biggest (division, no less) rival
    3) Surround him with great talent, so he can't be negated with 2x teams.

    = Great, great move. 

    Even though i was surprised to see the contract size.  BB must a) really like him, and b) have big plans.

    Here's guessing that prying him away from the Jets was a factor in the contract size.

    Question: some Jets fans on other sites are claiming that Bill will bring in Ellis to learn about the Jets schemes and release him before the season. I don't buy that obviously, but how much of his salary would he still earn if that were to happen?

    I know it was a $4 million deal with $1 in incentives.

    i though 4 mill was a lot for a player his age as well, but B.B. must know how valuble he is , not to mention the info he could provide about Sexy Rexy and his tendencies...def. assures he wont be cut, unless he completely flops here, but he is durable so should be a good fit...he is gonna want to stick to the Jets for that lowball offer

    Re: Shaun Ellis

    The topic of Bill needing Ellis to understand Rex's play book is absurd. You telling me a guy like Bill can't figure out what a team is doing after having an entire off season to watch it on film? He probably knows their system better than Ellis does, plus Rex's system and any new wrinkles added to it will be something Ellis wasn't even in camp this year to learn.
    I'm shocked that they are paying him this much though...4 million? I thought 2 million would be the tops. He must be a heck of a player and based off his career statistics and some video out there on him - maybe he is?

    Re: Shaun Ellis

    Yeah mthurl, I agree that Hoody wouldn't use him to learn the defense. It wasn't what they did last January. It was the fact that we couldn't stop it because of sloppy play and poor execution.

    I'm hoping this is a case where Hoody thinks he can get some great production out of a player for a year or two. He clearly feels that way because he doesn't throw around money like that...

    It looks like Shaun Ellis was the only one that didn't buy into Rex Ryan's ways. He's come to the right place then.

    In Response to Re: Shaun Ellis :      I have to disagree with you. There's no way that they should have let Ellis walk. Ditto with Braylon Edwards...who didn't get that much from the 49ers. For what they spent on 37 year old Derrick Mason, they could have easily signed Ellis. The money they spent on 35 year old Plax could have been used to sign Edwards.         The Jets spent too much time and energy chasing the Nnamdi dream. As a result, they seemingly were playing catch-up through this abbreviated pre-season.

    Jcour382:  Off topic, but I wanted to extend a sincere apology to you with regard to a post of mine last week on another thread.  I was sparring with the waste known as UD6 and mistakenly thought a post you made was by a "McCheaters" as you both had the same avatar.  Well, he called me on it and I didn't even think that two posters would have the same avatar (less the blank-sillouette type thing folks have that don't have an avatar).  In my response I was being purposely snarky toward him, and then you chimed in on my response indicating that you had the avatar first.  I never meant to insinuate that it was yours originally (though in re-reading my post I certainly did a poor job in communicating that fact).  A belated apology (out of town for a few days) - as soon as you mentioned that Phat Rex lifted your avatar it became abundently clear what the deal was - LOL :).  I've been scanning recent topics and I see McCheaters now has another avatar - go figure.  My bad and my apologies.
