Vikings CB Kelly Wants Out
 
Vikings reserve cornerback Eric Kelly is asking to be released, but coach Mike Tice isn't ready to grant his request.

Kelly, a four-year veteran, was upset with Tice for moving second-year cornerback Rushen Jones ahead of him on the depth chart during this week's minicamp. After meeting with Kelly on Tuesday, Tice excused Kelly from the rest of the camp to "clear his head."

"I told Eric he should go home and think about things," Tice said. "He was disappointed with the move we made and he said he wants to be released. His agent is putting it out there that he should be released, but I'm not releasing my fourth corner."

Kelly's agent, Mitch Frankel, said he was "under the impression" on Wednesday that Kelly would be released after talking with Vikings vice president of operations Rob Brzezinski. Brzezinski said the club is considering Kelly's request but no decision had been made.

Kelly has been cut.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Cornerback Eric Kelly was released by the Minnesota Vikings on Friday after failing to report for the final week of offseason workouts and asking for his release .

Kelly, who started 11 games as a rookie in 2001 and 12 games in 2002, was expected to be Minnesota\'s fourth cornerback.

Granted I kno our depth at CB isnt great, but does anyone think this will be a good pickup. If he\'s pissed about the depth chart in Minn, hows gunna act on our depth chart? He\'ll be behing Thomas, Craft, Ambrose AND Brown. I don\'t think it\'ll be a good addition. But that\'s me, and I\'m SURE someone here has to disagree.

Last we need to do is sign some other team(s) # 3 corner cancer. If anything the saints negotiate a trade for one of the Raider\'s corner:
1. Ike Charlton 6\'0 205 D2 SEA 00
2, Jacoby Shepherd 6\'2 205 D2 STL 00
3 Charles Woodson 6\'0 200 D1 RAI 98

The raiders are loaded w/ corners, it seems impossible to keep all of them. Projected starters:
Charles Woodson (D1) Nnamdi Asomugha (D1) Ray Buchanon (D3)

Phillip Buchanon (D1) Dernard Walker (D3) Ike Charlton(D2) Jacoby Shepherd(D2)

We don\'t need depth at corner... we have ample amout of cb\'s. We certainly don\'t need any other teams scabs.

...unless its a shut down corner, what do we need with a 3-4 stringer?

Reasons:
1. Ashley Ambrose is too old
2. Keyou Craver too fat
3. Jason Craft ????? (meaning injures)
4. Deveron Harper ??????

Question who are the 3rd & 4th cb?

The defensive backfield as a whole needs depth. Another corner would be great, but safety has been sorely overlooked. Mitchell, Bellamy, Tebucky, and Gleason? Add another corner? O.K. Add another safety? O.K. Adding another corner AND safety? Somebody\'s done their homework.
