Softy said live on the radio today that Softy heard a rumor. Softy emphasized that it's just a rumor he heard, but says he heard it from a good source. Softy said he is not "reporting" this -- it's just a rumor he heard.
Softy said the rumor he heard is that Tampa had reached a tentative agreement for a five year deal with the Chipster, but then Kelly asked for two additional things, and Tampa said no. First, Kelly wanted a longer term guaranteed deal. Second, Kelly wanted to be guaranteed that if the NCAA drops the hammer on him, and therefore the NFL suspends Kelly, that Tampa would be obligated to pay Kelly while he is on suspension. Tampa said NO WAY.
Looks like Kelly sees the hand writing on the wall so clearly that he's willing to risk making it a deal breaker with his NFL deal. Keep in mind that if anybody knows what really happened at Oregon, it's Kelly.
