    To be honest I didn't even know who Tommy Kelly was before this article. We played the Raiders the last couple of years, but I can't seem to recall him. Anyway, the Raiders signed him to a seven year $50 million deal, the largest contract given to a defensive tackle. From undrafted to $50 million, congrats to Tommy Kelly.

    It's also been reported that Tommy Kelly and his agent have been arrested for highway robbery.

    Kelly is a good player, but not $50 million good.

    IIRC, the Titans have between $35 & $40 Million in cap space. Based on Tommy Kelly's deal, it's as good as used up.

    (Yes, I know it's a 7 year deal, but Haynesworth is about 6 times as good as Tommy Kelly).

    Can Al Davis just die already? Or retire? Or go in a coma? Something to get him out of Oakland!
