Greg Ellis has suddenly become the elder statesman of the Dallas Cowboys. Ellis is in his eleventh season, and following a 2006 season cut short because of an Achilles Tendon tear, he earned the NFL's Comeback Player of the year award.
"I still have to thank God for that, because it's a true miracle," Ellis said. "You look at all of those things, this guys been playing football for ten years. He has suffered a possibly-career-ending injury, he's moved from position to position, coach to coach, and then he has the most productive season ever, that's not supposed to happen."
