Aaron Kelly (born April 20, 1986 in Marietta, Georgia) is a Canadian football wide receiver for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He had most recently played for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League.

College career[edit]

Aaron Kelly spent three seasons with the Clemson Tigers. In his first two seasons he was primarily utilized as a big possession receiver. In his junior year he had over 1000 yards and 11 touchdown receptions. His following senior year was a bit of a let down as his yardage fell to 722 with only 4 touchdowns.

Professional career[edit]

Atlanta Falcons[edit]

After going undrafted in the 2009 NFL Draft Kelly was signed by the Atlanta Falcons.[1] He was released prior to the start of the 2009 NFL season. The New Orleans Saints held a workout with Kelly midway through the season, but he was ultimately not signed.[2]

Hamilton Tiger-Cats[edit]

Kelly signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League in time for the 2011 CFL season. In his first year in the league, Kelly recorded 383 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Kelly's second season in the league was less productive, he only played in 6 of the 18 games and only recorded 107 yards and 1 touchdown. On May 23 2013 Kelly was released by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats following the acquisition of WR Lyle Leong. [3]

Winnipeg Blue Bombers[edit]

On August 27 2013 Kelly signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. He was signed mid-season, Week 9, to replace a heavily injured Bombers receiving corps.[4]
