Analysis: This deal is about on par with what Kelly is at this point: a solid rotational/role player for 2013. As for 2014, the Patriots can decide on that after they see his production this coming season. But unless Kelly totally falls on his face, he’s going to be on the team for ’13 and a contributor. Nothing else is promised.
