Pats didn’t overpay for Ellis Dan Leberfeld

Perhaps the Jets couldn’t afford Shaun Ellis, but the Patriots didn’t overpay for him.

He’s coming off a terrific season, and his performance in the Jets-New England playoff game was one of the best efforts by a defensive lineman in Jets history.

It has been reported that Ellis received between $4-5 million from the Patriots for this season.

That sounds about right, based on his performance last year

He had a very good season.

Don’t judge him by his age.

He really hasn’t slipped much, if at all.
