Cowboys | Jones not planning to meet with Ellis
Thu, 7 Jun 2007 17:20:18 -0700

Nick Eatman, of DallasCowboys.com, reports Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters Thursday, June 7, that he does not plan to meet with LB Greg Ellis. Ellis said, "That pretty much answers all your questions right there. A player that you're serious about keeping, and you don't meet with them? In any kind of job, if you want to keep them around, if that employee has some concern, you meet. I was told by Jerry we were going to have a meeting. I didn't even ask for a meeting. He walked up to me and said, 'Greg we're going to have a sit-down.' And then to tell you guys we aren't going to do that, that's fine with me. But by him saying that, that pretty much answers all the questions. I didn't answer them, I think Jerry answered them."

He's pretty good, but not as good as he seems to think he is. That said for the right price I'd love to see the team add some deapth at OLB.

WhoDat, I believe Ellis is a DE converted to a LB due to Parcells shifting to a 3/4 defense. As I recall he was not happy about being shifted to LB in the first place.

Oh, BTW, I found this nugget.....

Cowboys OLB Greg Ellis (Achilles' tear)

Ellis, who is the favorite to start over first-round pick Anthony Spencer, began light running in early March. He could struggle to stay healthy this season coming off an injury that frequently lingers.

Well our coaching staff knows him, thats for sure. If we did pick him up he would join the growing list of NFC east misfits that have been added to the team. Sean knows how to turn another teams trash into a tressure from that conference. I would trust him on the move just because of the NFC east conection alone. He has coached in that division for years. He has not let us down yet. So roll with it
