Stripes Posted March 6, 2007 Report Share Posted March 6, 2007 Kelly to return By GEOFF HOBSONMarch 6, 20076:35 p.m. The Bengals won a bidding war Tuesday for tight end Reggie Kelly, bringing him back to Cincinnati as the starter for a fifth straight season. The Bengals don’t confirm contracts unless they are signed, but a source outside the club said Kelly has agreed to return in a three-year deal. Kelly, 30, has helped anchor a ground game that produced two franchise-best seasons for running back Rudi Johnson and his 4,221 yards over the last three seasons. One of the first signings in the Marvin Lewis era (he inked a four-year deal in the first week of agency on March 13, 2003), Kelly missed just one game in the last three seasons and last year showed he could also be a big target. He had his first 20-yard catches a Bengal last that included a 32-yarder that was his longest in four seasons and finished with is Bengals-best 23 caches for 254 yards after catching a combined 256 the previous three seasons.Rock on.
