Tommy Kelly sees 'writing on wall'
By Bill Williamson | ESPN.com
Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly told the San Francisco Chronicle he expects to be released by the team. Kelly is his own agent and he told the paper he has not had any contact with the team this offseason.
“The writing is on the wall," Kelly told the paper. "The team is going in another direction. I'm ready for the next chapter. ... They're ready, too."
Quarterback Carson Palmer and receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey may have to take pay cuts to avoid being cut as Oakland tries to get enough cap room to maneuver through the offseason.
