The Bengals get a major lift heading into next week's workouts. Veteran tight end Reggie Kelly texted Thursday morning that his deal is done and he'll sign today.
"I'm blessed," Kelly said.
So are the Bengals. Kelly brings his seven years of solid play in Bob Bratkowski's offense to the table as he mentors Jermaine Gresham and Chase Coffman.
Kelly, who worked out with the Bengals last month, told bengals.com at that time that his Achilles he ruptured last season during training camp is now 100 percent.
