A hunch of what might happen next Dan Leberfeld

The Jets have taken a lot of heat for releasing long-time Jet Jerricho Cotchery on Thursday.

So don’t be shocked, to help make that story go away, they up the ante to another long-time Jet, Shaun Ellis, currently a free agent.

Ellis worked out for New England this week.

If Ellis signed with the Patriots, right after the Jets released Cotchery, that would be a double whammy of bad publicity for the Jets.
