SEC Country: FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman: Chad Kelly’s Baggage ‘Considerably Worse’ Than What Has Been Reported

Chad Kelly’s absence at the NFL combine because of off-the-field concerns was a hot topic last week.

According to FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman, there’s more baggage involving the former Ole Miss quarterback that hasn’t been reported.
As highlighted in an in-depth analysis about quarterback prospects at the NFL combine, Feldman included a fascinating note about Kelly. It sounds like Feldman heard that more concerns are swirling about the former Rebels signal-caller.
It’s hard to tell what “considerably worse” means in this case. But it’s fair to assume that someone told Feldman about incidents that never reached the light of day.
NFL officials withdrew Kelly’s combine invitation last month after becoming displeased with a viral video of his 2014 bar fight. Kelly was arrested and pleaded guilty to a non-criminal charge of disorderly conduct. This past fall, Kelly was on the field during a scuffle at his brother’s high school football game in Buffalo, N.Y.
It will be interesting to see what comes of Kelly during the NFL draft. He threw for 6,858 yards with 50 touchdowns and 21 interceptions throughout his college career.
