Patriots Beef Up Pass Rush by Signing Shaun Ellis

Shaun Ellis

Bill Belichick is really committed to improving his defensive line this offseason. Sunday saw yet another addition to the pass rush as New England inked a deal for lifelong Jets DE Shaun Ellis. The deal is pending a physical.

Ellis is as reliable as they come when it comes to other defensive ends. He has missed only six games in his eleven-year career and what is a really good selling point for this team is that he is comfortable playing in any scheme including in the 3-4.

Drafted 12th overall by the Jets in 2000, Ellis has 72.5 carrer sacks in 11 seasons. Ellis’ time appeared up in New York when the Jets took Temple’s Muhammad Wilkerson with the 30th pick of this past year’s draft. If Ellis had stayed in New York, his playing time would have been greatly reduced.

Now with Ellis on the line, he joins All-Pro’s Albert Haynesworth and Vincent Wilfork, giving New England a formidable wall of punching power that is sure to be a handful for any offensive line this season.
