Shaun Ellis Profile
Signed to a one-year contract with the New England Patriots, veteran defensive end Shaun Ellis has begun training camp on the physically unable to perform list, according to a league source.
He can be activated to practice at any time.
For his career, Ellis has recorded 72 1/2 sacks, 552 tackles and 13 forced fumbles.
Ellis, 34, is a former New York Jets first-round draft pick.
The Jets drafted Temple defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson in the first round this spring.
The Patriots have a history of stockpiling veteran defensive linemen.
Ellis is up in years, but is a smart player who uses sound leverage and has a quick first step.
