- Tom Pelissero hears that the Jaguars are also interested in Ellison, who could get around $5 million per year.
Ellison, 28, played out his four-year, $2.4 million rookie contract that included a $300,584 signing bonus. His 2015 season, unfortunately, came to an end after he suffered a torn patellar tendon during their Week 15 win over the Packers.
