Patriots have had contract talks with Green-Ellis
BenJarvus Green-Ellis led the Patriots in rushing the last two years and he’s yet to fumble in his career.
He’s been a great success story as an undrafted free agent, and now he gets a chance to cash in as an unrestricted free agent. The question is whether he will cash in with New England.
His agent Joel Segal joined PFT Live Tuesday and said that there have been “on and off” contract talks with the Patriots. New England traditionally doesn’t like to break the bank at running back (Corey Dillon an exception) and they drafted two running backs last year: Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen.
Green-Ellis is a rock solid player, but not a special talent that will attract huge dollars. We’d guess that the Patriots would welcome keeping “The Law Firm” at their price, but it wouldn’t be surprising if Green-Ellis can find a higher price elsewhere.
Kansas City, where the Chiefs could use someone to pair with Jamaal Charles, looks like one possible fit.
