Elliott was drafted by the New York Giants in 1988 and went on to win a Super Bowl with the Giants. In February 1996, he signed for the Jets as a free agent.
Elliott had two spells with the Jets, from 1996 to 2000, and then returning for 2002. His most well known play probably occurred in a Monday Night Football game in 2000. Late in the fourth quarter the Jets were down by seven points to the Dolphins when Elliott caught his only career touchdown pass to tie the game 37–37. This play was especially notable as it marked the end of the Jets miraculous comeback from being down by 23 points in the fourth quarter. The Jets would eventually go on to win 40–37 in overtime. The game would go down in history known as the "Monday Night Miracle
In 2002, Elliott also managed to put the smackdown on Santa Claus, and got away with it. Clearly the man is a legend amongst mortal men.
