Rex Ryan has praised the work that Kenrick Ellis has put in, calling him one of the players that has improved the most this offseason. According to Ryan, he couldn’t do a pull up, now he can do ten sets of 10, with a 35 pound weight tied around him. Clearly his strength has improved.
Coach Ryan talked with his young lineman before he left to serve his sentence.
“I have conversations with a lot of our players, but obviously that’s a different situation. But I definitely talked to him,” Ryan said. “There are people that have gone through similar things, and I basically said, ‘Lean on each other.’ That’s pretty much it.”
Rex feels that Kenrick Ellis is a “strong man”, and this will help him get through his sentence. He knows that Ellis has worked very hard, and is excited about the new season, which will drive him.
Here’s to wishing Ellis the very best as he gets through his 45 day sentence, and puts his past behind him and moves forward into 2012.
