Former Jets defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis is signing a one-year deal with the Giants today, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Ellis’ visited the Meadowlands’ other team on Tuesday.
The Jets were hoping to retain Ellis but at the outset of free agency, he was receiving a lot of outside interest with six teams inquiring on him. The rival Dolphins were among the teams also linked to him. Ellis, 27, saw time in 14 games last season, racking up 12 total tackles and one sack.
