Brady 21st on ESPN's 'Fame 100 list'; no MLB or NHL players make it

Whether the subject is a rookie or an established veteran, those five words can serve as Bill Belichick's stamp of approval. Belichick hasn't gone on the record on any of the members of this year's class of undrafted free agents just yet, but linebacker Brooks Ellis seems to fall into that category of players to whom football is important. Ellis was a two-year captain at Arkansas and one of 12 finalists for the Campbell Trophy, also known as the "Academic Heisman." He maintained a 3.82 grade point average as a pre-professional exercise science major with a minor in biology, he was the first two-time Academic All-American in program history, and he was the SEC's Scholar-Athlete of the year for 2016. "I'm putting my all into this right now," Ellis said, wearing Patriots gear while standing on the Gillette Stadium turf last week.
