Chad Kelly, Nephew of Former Bills QB Jim Kelly, Dismissed From Clemson Football Team

Chad Kelly, a redshirt sophomore and nephew of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, was dismissed from the Clemson football team on Monday. Kelly was in contention to replace last seasons star QB Tajh Boyd. WYFF reports police escorted Kelly from the football facilities.

Here’s the full statement from coach Dabo Swinney:

“I have dismissed Chad Kelly for conduct detrimental to our program. He has had a pattern of behavior that is not consistent with the values of our program. I hope he will mature and grow from this and become the man and player I know he can be. I wish him nothing but the best in the future academically and athletically.”

There were reports that Kelly got into an altercation with members of Tigers’ coaching staff , including Coach Swinney and offensive coordinator Chad Morris, during the school’s Orange and White Game on Saturday. He didn’t play in the second half after throwing for 113 yards and two touchdowns.

Kelly tweeted his thoughts on the matter earlier Monday afternoon:

Miami Linebacker Denzel Perryman Lays Out Teammate During Spring Game [Video]

Denzel Perryman’s hit on running back Gus Edwards fired up his Miami teammates, and it’s easy to see why.

The 6’1″, 240-pound linebacker smashed Edwards to the ground during the Hurricanes spring game.

Of course, the Miami coaches would probably prefer their players to not lay out their teammates like that during spring ball.

One thing is certain after seeing this hit: Perryman now has bragging rights over Edwards in the locker room.

Ricky Seals-Jones: Texas A&M WR Arrested for Trying to Start Bar Fight

Its hasn’t been the best off-season for the Aggies, as yet another athlete has had a run in with the law. This time it happen to beTexas A&M wide receiver and former 5-star recruit Ricky Seals-Jones, who was arrested early Sunday morning on a charge of disorderly conduct after shouting obscenities while being carried away from a College Station bar, according to KBTX.com’s Steve Fullhart.

According to the report, the freshman wideout was being “carried away by his friends” when someone bumped into him, sparking a confrontation in which Seals-Jones yelled “F–k you! You want some?,” according to police.

Police took Seals-Jones into custody after he motioned toward the individual as if he wanted to fight.

 The 6’5″, 225-pound receiver caught just three passes for 84 yards and a touchdown in two appearances in 2013 and received a medical redshirt shortly after undergoing knee surgery in September.

As Fullhart points out, Seals-Jones’ arrest is just the latest of several involving Texas A&M football players. Quarterback Kenny Hill was arrested for public intoxication last month, and in February two Aggies defenders were taken into police custody on separate charges.
