Chad Kelly accepts Senior Bowl invite

senior-bowl-invites MOBILE, AL (WNSP) — Chad Kelly is coming to Mobile, regardless of his injury.

On Monday’s Senior Bowl Locker Room Show, executive director Phil Savage, public relations director Rob Lehocky and scouting coordinator Patrick Woo announced the next group of 20 players who have accepted their invitations to the Senior Bowl. That list includes Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly.
