Jets legacy over. You have now become an enemy of the state Mr. Ellis. That’s too bad.

Well after hearing rumors earlier in the week that Ellis may sign with the Pats kind of ticked me off. Let’s be clear, I’m not upset that he signed with another team. I’m upset that he signed with the most hated team for a Jets fan. I would have felt the same way if he signed with the Dolphins.
Shaun was drafted by the Jets in 2000 and I was hoping that he would take the Vet minimum to mentor some of the younger Jets. He obviously thought that was an insult and his goal was to stick it to us by going to the Patriots. Do the Pats really need HIM? No, but this just makes the rival even more heated. I think I speak for most Jets fans when I say we are upset because this is Ellis trying to SHOW THE JETS UP. As a player, he was on the decline and most likely will be his last year in the NFL.
Shaun, you ruined your legacy with the Jets. I hope it was worth it.
