Ellis situation a non-story Dan Leberfeld
Shaun Ellis shouldn’t be traded and he’s fairly compensated ($3.35 million in 2010). In the NFL, you generally don’t give 32-year-old defensive ends long-term deals, especially when they are under contract. But the Jets shouldn’t even think of dumping him. They need him. Vernon Gholston has been moved to end to back him up. Nobody knows how he will do in his new role. This is a non-story.
