Kelly leaves Bucs
 
Bucs In A Bind At Cornerback

There are some who thought he was even better than Ronde Barber, a four-time Pro Bowl player. Kelly didn't want the comparisons. He wanted a contract that reflected his abilities and contributions. He never got it.

Even in retrospect it's hard to blame the Bucs for taking the stance they took. After all, the five-year extension Kelly agreed to in 2004 was lucrative at the time, paying him an average of $3.2 million per year.

The problem, and it was all Kelly's problem and not one the Bucs wanted to concern themselves with, was that the contract became outdated almost as soon as Kelly signed it.
