Cardinals taking a look at Tommy Kelly, maybe he shows

Tommy Kelly AP

The Cardinals are bringing a veteran defensive lineman in for a look.

But it’s highly unlikely he’ll just leverage them for frequent flier miles and a new deal from his old team this time.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals are bringing in Tommy Kelly for a look, after he was released by the Patriots yesterday.

The Patriots struggled to replace Kelly last year when he tore his ACL, but obviously thought he wasn’t the same player now.

The longtime Raiders defensive tackle, now 33, would help the Cards fill the void left when Darnell Dockett tore his ACL recently.

They tried to sign Steelers veteran Brett Keisel, but he stiffed them in favor of a new deal in Pittsburgh.

    Packer fans aren’t going to like this recent player’s poll:
    An ESPN/NFL Nation Confidential poll surveyed 100-plus players to find the least desirable location to play in the NFL. The question was this: “The only way I’d play for [team name] is if they doubled my salary.”

    The “winner”? Oakland, with 23 percent of the 82 respondents. Following Oakland were:

    • Buffalo Bills (19 percent)
    • Cleveland Browns (16 percent)
    • Jacksonville Jaguars (9 percent)
    • Green Bay Packers (6 percent).

    Good news, Jets and Redskins fans! You’re not the worst!

    You love your Cardinals jokes, that’s for sure.

    I’m not at all sure the PATS felt that way about Tommy K. — i think they’re hoping to pick him up after the first week on a non guaranteed contract. I
    believe the Pats would be VERY happy if no one signs him.

    Kelly isn’t fast enough to play the position in this F

    Charles Woodson did not want to come to Green Bay in 2006. Ask him now what it was like to play for Packers.

    Players (Woodson included) may not think they want to land in Green Bay’s weather. But remarkably, they speak highly of the organization and facilities when they do arrive and long after they leave. And even the ones that leave often wish the team had kept them (Woodson, James Jones, Ryan Longwell, Mike Flanagan). Woodson even offered to take a pay cut to stay.

    That’s the only guy that has won a Heisman, an NCAA Title, a Super Bowl, and DPOY. He sure enjoyed Green Bay.

    much of that has to do with winning (although GB has been pretty good).
    Nobody wants to be in Buffalo (the city) but then many of them dont want to leave…. esp hockey players because you know, they are more down to earth than many football players.

    Winning changes everything….

    The Cardinals team might be headed for a fall.

    If he does sign with Arizona I’m gonna miss him. I like him here in NE I thought he played pretty good and it was nice to have a 6’6 dt he made some plays last year when he was healthy.
