Tampa Bay Buccaneers were informed today that CB Brain Kelly has decided to opt of his contract with the team and test free agency. Kelly has had a string of injuries that has limited his playing time, but he at least adds to the cornerback group that is left in free agency.

At one point, Kelly was the only solid man to man coverage CB this team had. The last few seasons though, fans and coaches have gotten used to not seeing much of Kelly, as injuries (including the dreaded foot injury for corners) have kept him out of the lineup more often that he has been in it.
Kelly might not be our answer at corner, but I would at least like to take a look at him. Matter of fact, if you’re a free agent corner I would love for the Chiefs to take a look at you. Since most of the corners got tagged and left the group rather bare, Kelly made a wise decision to test the free agent market.
