FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Tommy Kelly feels like a rookie again.
After spending his first nine seasons with the Oakland Raiders - starting every game the past five years and six of the last seven - and even earning a captain's badge in the process, Kelly now is embarking on a new chapter in his career with the Patriots.
Yet despite signing a two-year deal in April to help bolster New England's front four, the 6-foot-6, 325-pound defensive tackle isn't exactly ready to buy a house in the area anytime soon.
"That's how I feel right now coming in, undrafted free agent. Ain't nothing guaranteed to you," Kelly said Wednesday during the second week of organized team activities. "You're the bottom of the totem pole. You can easily be replaced."
