Quarles and Kelly skip first Voluntary Team Workout

The Bucs Beat from the St. Pete Times is reporting that LB Shelton Quarles and CB Brian Kelly did not report to todays first Voluntary Workout.

I can't blame either veteran for not showing up. First off its voluntary and at this point in their careers they should both have a stern grasp on Gruden/Kiffin's play style, how to prepare, and not be expected to show for every event in the off-season. On that note, if Brian Kelly is avoiding voluntary workouts for contract reasons, then please get a grip Mr. Kelly, you were injured for all but 2 games last season. As for Quarles its been widely speculated that he has yet to be medically cleared to play, sooo I can't really get down on him for that.

At this point I don't even have to tell you that Cato June showed up eager and ready. He played Strong-Side Line-Backer taking the place of Ryan Nece. Someone else showed up eager as well, newly acquired DT/LB Patrick Chukwurah took recovering DT Simeon Rice's spot in the D-Formation.
