Jets coach Rex Ryan had a few parting compliments for former defensive lineman Shaun Ellis after learning he signed with the Patriots, but according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Ryan refused to wish Ellis well in New England.

“The fact that he chose [the Patriots], there’s no way I’m going to wish him well,” Ryan said. “There’s no chance of that.”

Ellis reportedly wanted to stay in New York for an extended period, and turned down the one-year contract offered by the Jets. The 34-year-old defensive end had 36 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks in 2010.
