The longest tenured Jet of the past decade is taking his talents up north to Foxborough. On Monday morning, defensive end Shaun Ellis, choose to leave the team who drafted him in 2000 for the Evil Hoodie. The 34-year-old Ellis agreed to a one-year, incentive-laden deal with the Patriots, a move that didn’t sit well with Mr. Rex Ryan…

“The fact that he chose them,” Ryan said of Ellis’ departure, “there’s no way I’m going to wish him well. There’s no chance of that.”

Can’t say that I’m surprised by Ryan’s boisterous comments. 

The Jets aren’t exactly losing an All-Pro talent. Ellis’ five sacks last year were the second lowest total of his career.

Could he benefit from suiting up with Albert Haynesworth, Jerrod Mayo, and others? Sure. But the Patriots do not need him to play every down. Ellis will use the Jets low-ball offer as his motivation.

Another classic example of a low-risk, high-reward move by New England. 

Bottom line, the Patriots have reloaded while the Jets are attempting to the fill-in the gaps. 

As always, their Week 5 match-up in Foxborough will be ‘must-see’ TV.
