Kenrick Ellis Will Not Be Suspended by NFL Over Prison Plea


Finally, some good news to report to the New York Jets fans.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News is reporting this afternoon that Kenrick Ellis will not face any discipline from the NFL following his “Alford” plea on his assault case.

For anyone who forgot, Ellis spent time in prison this summer after taking an “Alford” plea stemming from his 2010 assault case while in college. Had he not taken a plea, he would have faced possible deportation if he had been convicted.

This is great news for the Jets, who as we all know, have been decimated with injury, and poor play to date. The defense has looked quite good, so we didn’t need any losses on that side of the ball.
