One step up, two steps back.
That’s the way things seem to go for WR Kelly Campbell, a free agent signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February after spending last year putting up big numbers in the Canadian Football League.
The most prolific receiver in Georgia Tech history pulled up with a quadriceps injury during Thursday’s practice, ending his day abruptly after he turned in several impressive receptions.
“You see K.C. flash down the field, then he pulls a quad,” said coach Raheem Morris, adding a shrug.
Campbell, 29, played 37 games for the Vikings from 2002-04, but he’s been out of the NFL the past four seasons because of injuries and personal issues that scared off potential suitors.
According to QB Luke Mccown, Campbell has flashed enough skills to mark him as an intriguing target.
