RetireChrebet Icon : (17 July 2014 - 03:03 AM) My main concern this season is the quarterback play, he or they need to limit turnovers. Simple as that. Also curious to see what we get out of the secondary. If the two aforementioned play decent football this year it should be a very good season.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 July 2014 - 01:24 PM) Football has been gone so long it feels like the Super Bowl was over a year ago. And we still have about 6 weeks to go before the season starts.

New York Jets second-year nose tackle Kenrick Ellis reached a plea agreement in a Virginia court case that has loomed over his head since the Jets drafted him a year ago, his attorney Tim Clancy confirmed.

Clancy said an agreement was reached Thursday, but the plea deal had yet to be formally presented to the Hampton Circuit Court for approval. That should occur early next week.

Ellis' trial on malicious wounding charges was scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Clancy would not divulge the details of the agreement because a judge had not yet approved it.

The Star-Ledger quoted S. Howard Woodson, who represents the alleged victim Dennis Eley, as saying that Ellis agreed to plead guilty to a lesser count of misdemeanor assault and battery.

Woodson told the newspaper that Ellis' plea will result in six months of active jail time, but Virginia law would reduce that to 90 days. It is unclear when that time would be served, if Woodson is correct.

Clancy said these details of the agreement are inaccurate and was furious that Woodson spoke about the deal.

"It's entirely inappropriate for anybody to talk about a plea agreement until it's been approved by a court," Clancy said.

The Jets declined to comment.

I guess we'll see. Seems like he'll be getting some jail time. Likely very little. Could reduce to community service and fines. Stay tuned.

When the New York Jets' mandatory minicamp ends June 14, backup nose tackle Kenrick Ellis will go to jail for 45 days, but will avoid deportation.

Ellis, who reached a plea agreement last week in which he accepted a reduced charge of misdemeanor assault and battery, was sentenced Monday in Hampton, Va., to 179 days in prison, with 89 days suspended. The deal also includes two years of supervised probation.

Based on Virginia law, Ellis will serve 45 days with good behavior, his attorney, Timothy Clancy, said in a phone interview. Ellis will report June 15 to the city jail in Hampton, where two years ago he was arrested and charged with malicious wounding -- a felony that carried a five- to 20-year sentence. He was a Hampton University student at the time.

Based on the timing of the sentence, Ellis won't miss any OTAs or minicamp. The Jets report for training camp July 26, so he will miss a few days. There is nothing on the Jets' calendar from minicamp to training camp.
Even though the incident happened while Ellis was in college, his case is subject to review under the NFL's personal-conduct policy, according to a league spokesman. However, the timing of the incident will be considered as a factor, the spokesman said.

Ellis appeared in court Monday and entered an Alford plea, meaning he doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges the prosecution could prove the case against him if it went to trial.

That would've been a risk for Ellis, who was born in Jamaica. Because he's not a U.S. citizen, Ellis he faced deportation if he had been convicted of felony assault, according to immigration law.

This plea agreement "excludes that possibility," according to Clancy, acknowledging the specter of deportation was "the most huge thing" during negotiations with the prosecution.

The Jets were aware of Ellis' legal issues when they chose him in the third round of the 2011 draft. At the time, team officials said they were comfortable with the risk.


Ellis, who declined last week to comment, is "anxious to get this behind him," Clancy said. "He wants to get on with his career with the New York Jets. This (plea deal) is a fair compromise and it protects his ability to do that."

The timing of the sentence was based around Ellis' football schedule, according to Clancy.

He's extremely lucky then if he won't miss significant OTA or training camp time. Hopefully he can put the incident behind him and that he's back on the straight and narrow. It would be a waste of talent if Ellis ever gets on the wrong side of the law again.

He actually got a raw deal because of the whole immigration issue. If he was a citizen, he'd take this to trial and there's a very good chance he'd get off scott free. But since he's not a citizen, even a 5th class felony can force him to be deported.

45 days in jail mean's he'll be behind bars for about 1 month. No big deal.

At least he won't miss the OTAs, team workouts, and minicamp.
