Nice tag line, I thought someone was actually going to be boosting "Me-shaun"!!
Signing Kelly...he's under contract through 2008 and Bruce Allen has already demonstrated that he doesn't allow this. If you know the GM won't
be held hostage and you persist with this act then your saying you don'tÂ want to be here.
Factor in that his injures have robbed the Bucs of his services for much of his current contract...meaning we already didn't get what we paid for...and he wants the Bucs to know he's
unhappy? Here's an excerpt from a piece on buccaneers.com about Kelly's injury impact:http://www.buccaneers.com/news/newsdetail.aspx?newsid=5454
"Kelly has now finished two of the last four seasons on injured reserve.
In 2003 he played in only five games before missing the rest of the season with a pectoral injury. Drafted in the second round in 1998, Kelly has played in 119 games and started 75 for the Buccaneers. His career totals include 404 tackles and 20 interceptions."
He finished last year on IR after only two complete games.
We need him but not at the cost of being a malcontent. If he wants a new contract, get to camp, as an act of good faith. Perhaps then he'd get an extension
. He needs to get to camp as we are not the same team without him.
