Report: Patriots Sign Former Jets Defensive End Shaun Ellis to One-Year Deal

by

Bill Belichick has done some work through the shortened offseason to add some presence to the team's pass-rush. On Sunday, he reportedly helped that pass-rush by adding another key piece to the defensive line.

ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reports the New England Patriots have signed defensive end Shaun Ellis to a one-year deal. The deal is pending a physical, which is expected to be completed by Sunday night.

Ellis has played his entire career for the New York Jets since being drafted 12th overall in 2000. The 34-year-old has only missed six games in his entire career, resulting in 72.5 career sacks, a total that ranks third in Jets history.
