DT Tommy Kelly gets Paid

The Raiders Defensive tackle had been starting to garner interest in the free agent market. I had speculated that the Hawks may look at him considering he was 27 and coming off an injury. He was expected to be a less expensive option. So much for that. The Raiders locked him up at 50.5 million with 18.125 guaranteed. He is now the highest paid DT in the league. Maybe the Hawks ought hold that 1st rounder after all, especially if they want a DT who can contribute. There is some crazy jack being thrown around right now... just wait until 9pm tonight, stay tuned.
