Vikings | Kelly Wants Release, Excused From Camp

Ray Richardson, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings CB Eric Kelly has asked to be released. Kelly was upset with head coach Mike Tice for moving Vikings second-year CB Rushen Jones ahead of him on the team's depth chart during this week's minicamp. After meeting with Kelly on Tuesday, June 8, Tice excused Kelly from the rest of the camp to "clear his head." "I told Eric he should go home and think about things," Tice said. "He was disappointed with the move we made and he said he wants to be released. His agent is putting it out there that he should be released, but I'm not releasing my fourth corner."
