The Patriots officially announced the signings of veteran defensive linemen Shaun Ellis and Andre Carter.

One very interesting note on the Ellis signing: ESPN's John Clayton tweeted that the Patriots have the 12th-year veteran a one-year, $4 million deal with and additional $1 million in incentives - the Jets had offered Ellis only the 10-plus-year veteran minimum, which is $910,000. The price tag shows the Pats believe Ellis has plenty to contribute - that isn't the money given to a part-time player.
