SB MVP Hopkins
Why would Reich praise Kelly so effusively if he might want to stash him away on the practice squad? Wouldn’t this seem more likely to lead to losing him, especially if we cannot pay extra money to our favorite PS players?
Perhaps he’s not worried about losing him, but last year he specifically stated that he wanted to keep him on active roster after promoting him from PS to avoid that risk.
Reading between the tea leaves, I think the Colts no longer see a future with Kelly. His current purpose is to serve as “competition” for Eason to bring out the best in that kid.
