Cowboys linebacker Greg Ellis voted AP Comeback Player of Year
Ellis went from nonfactor in Dallas to a dominator in his new position after spending most of his career as a defensive end. He had 12 1/2 sacks, forming a dynamic pass-rushing force with All-Pro linebacker DeMarcus Ware.
“It’s been great,” Ellis said. “I thank God for blessing me, letting me get out there and have a good support group, starting from the doctors. We have good people here, the coaches have done a good job working me back into it. They’ve been telling me ‘You’re fine, you’re fine.’ It was just getting the confidence to get out there and do it.”
