New York Jets Offer Shaun Ellis the Minimum

New, comments

The Jets have made an offer to Shaun Ellis, and it is the smallest offer they could have made.

The New York Jets say they want to re-sign defensive end Shaun Ellis, their longest-tenured player, but they apparently aren't willing to pay much to make it happen.

The Jets have made a one-year offer for the veterans' minimum of $910,000, according to Ellis' agent, Mitch Frankel.

Ellis has been seeking a new contract for a while so this would probably be a worst case scenario for Shaun. Things have been surprisingly quiet on the rumor front as far as Ellis goes. It is a bit surprising. He is near the end of his career, but he had a great 2010 and can play end in the 4-3 and 3-4. He can also see time inside in the 4-3.

Either Ellis will really have to love being a Jet or he will have to have no other suitors for this to happen. It would be great to get him back, though.
