Bucs' Kelly Plans to Test Free Agency This Spring
Brian Kelly, the Bucs' bookend cornerback who played opposite Ronde Barber for the past decade, said he plans to become a free agent according to the St. Petersburg Times.
Kelly, 32, is scheduled to earn $3.2-million in 2008. But he said he plans to "buy back" the final year of his contract by exercising a $480,000 option in March.
"Consider it done," Kelly said in a text message Saturday.
Kelly's 22 interceptions rank seventh in Bucs history, one behind John Lynch.
