  Seahawks | Kevin Ellison re-signed    Tue Jun 29, 06:41 PM

The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed unrestricted free-agent SS Kevin Ellison, reports Seahawks.com. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: When Ellison was cut last week it was reported to be because of a failed physical. That report seems false as the Seahawks have stated he was let go to 'adjust contractual issues.' We have a feeling that Pete Carroll just has a minimum quota for former Trojans on the Seahawks roster.

  Chargers | Two man battle at strong safety?    Wed Aug 5, 12:53 AM

Kevin Acee, of The San Diego Union-Tribune, reports San Diego Chargers SS Clinton Hart and Steve Gregory are basically now in a two-man race for the starting strong safety duties. S Kevin Ellison is playing catch up, but can earn himself playing time.

Footballguys view: Ellison could still get in the mix for the position if the eventual starter falters, but the Chargers are making the right move easing him in slowly.

  Chargers | Eillison signs    Wed Jul 29, 09:40 PM

The San Diego Chargers announced Wednesday, July 29, that they have signed sixth-round draft choice S Kevin Ellison to a four-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Looks like Ellison gave in and allowed the Chargers to get the extra year. He has a chance to challenge Clinton Hart to start at strong safety if he has a good camp, and he could get a chance during the season anyway if Hart falters too often in coverage.

Kevin Acee, of The San Diego Union-Tribune, reports San Diego Chargers sixth-round draft choice SS Kevin Ellison is not in camp and may not be for a while. The Chargers offered a four-year deal worth near the value of the deals signed by the players taken before and after Ellison, but he is looking for a three-year deal with a smaller signing bonus. Head coach Norv Turner is disappointed Ellison isn't in camp, and he hopes the absence doesn't cost Ellison a chance of making the team.

  Chargers | Ellison could start     Mon Jul 6, 03:50 PM

Bill Williamson, of ESPN.com, reports San Diego Chargers S Kevin Ellison could get a chance to start at strong safety this season.

Footballguys view: Ellison could be a good deep IDP sleeper, because he's built (and hits) more like an LB, and would likely play a lot of snaps in the box.

  Chargers | Hart in a battle for playing time    Fri May 29, 01:09 PM

Kevin Acee, of The San Diego Union-Tribune, reports San Diego Chargers SS Clinton Hart may spend half of the snaps on the sideline in 2009 because the Chargers are not working with their base defense much.

Footballguys view: Hart feels the Chargers have lost a little confidence in him during certain situations. 'It's up to me to gain it back,' he noted. He is working as a backup in sub packages, as S Steve Gregory is ahead of him and rookie S Kevin Ellison isn't far behind him. Defensive coordinator Ron Rivera acknowledged Hart is in a competition for playing time.

  Chargers | Ellison could compete for starting job    Tue May 5, 04:07 PM

Kevin Acee, of the San Diego Union-Tribune, reports San Diego Chargers S Kevin Ellison could compete for the starting strong safety job this offseason.

Footballguys view: Ellison is an instinctive and functional player that will make his way in the NFL by stuffing the run. He is the brother of Bills OLB Keith Ellison and was known as a hard worker during his time at USC.
