That about sums it up. I wish him the best but his future isn't with this team, or any other most likely.Kelly will be in the next series of cuts. At this point there are just too many options ahead of him at WR and he doesn't play special teams so he's not going to be around for depth.
He's got all the talent in the world. I think what people have been saying (myself included) is if he gets healthy enough to play, he would dominate. That may be silly, but no sillier than championing Reed Doughty.I have NO idea. And personally, I think the people who keep up the "If Kelly comes around and performs..." look absolutely silly.
Huge difference that's called availability. Much easier to champion a guy that is actually on the field more then in the training room rehabbing.He's got all the talent in the world.

Watch any of his Oklahoma highlight reels.I am not sure where this "all the talent in the world" idea originated, but this is the 3rd training camp in a row there has been some issue with him not getting on the field. I don't know if it was health related, but last year I distinctly remember he ran poor routes. Just 'cause you can catch a ball does not mean you are a NFL WR.
I guess championing a kid who never really got his chance or a hard working SS is tantamount to championing for a kid who can't catch the ball.
So NCAA talent equates to NFL talent? Or are you suggesting it gives us a glimpse into what "could" be?Watch any of his Oklahoma highlight reels.
Come on El - don't make me steal your favorite phrase and use it on you! You know just as well as I do, you can't coach hands. Kelly has ridiculous hands, & an ability to catch the ball anywhere around his body as can be seen from his Oklahoma highlight reels. So yes, that talent does translate. Route-running, learning the offense, etc. takes practice - something the kid has not been able to do.So NCAA talent equates to NFL talent? Or are you suggesting it gives us a glimpse into what "could" be?
Not saying I disagree - I have been making the case for keeping him on the team for this long; this is the final straw IMO. Just sad, because he does in fact have all the talent in the world.I think the writing is on the wall. Just one last glimpse into what the organization was. At this point it doesn't matter if he ends up in Denver and catches 99 passes and 1400 yards with 12 TD's. He can't even take the field for us now and we cannot afford to keep him with other receivers on the field making their case for making the team.
