News came out of Jerry Jones’ mouth today, according to Matt Mosley of Espn and Dallascowboys.com, that saying “It’s likely Greg will play somewhere else next season”. Ellis and his agent have been given permission to inquire about trades throughout the league. Both sides said it’s mutual and that they should “leave it like it is” meaning that the cowboys aren’t rushed in the release of Greg Ellis.
In a 10 year career with the Cowboys, Ellis has acquired 365 tackles and 77 sacks. It’s been his complaining that most would attribute to the decision to go seperate ways. Along with the emergence of 3rd year linebacker Anthony Spencer and the draft which brought the Cowboys plenty of youth and linebacking depth. You have to believe that this is the final step in revamping a locker room that was burdened with complaints and drama which severly hindered team chemistry.
Anthony Spencer has 70 tackles and 4.5 sacks in limited play over the last 2 seasons.
