Jim Kelly named to ESPN list of best 15 QBs of all time

With Super Bowl LI rapidly approaching, one of the big storylines this week will focus on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's place in history.

Brady will play in his seventh Super Bowl, which is the most in history, and is going for his fifth win, which would break a tie with Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw for the most among quarterbacks.

With that in mind, ESPN senior writer John Clayton wrote a column ranking his top 15 quarterbacks of all time. Brady tops that list, while Bills great Jim Kelly comes in 13th.

Here's what Clayton wrote about Kelly: "Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno wanted Kelly to play linebacker for the Nittany Lions. It's a good thing Kelly went to Miami (Florida) to play quarterback. Kelly, who never won a regular-season MVP, was one of the league's toughest signal-callers. His brain moved much faster than his legs. He ran the Bills' no-huddle K-Gun offense, which was several years ahead of the rest of the NFL, and went to four consecutive Super Bowls from 1990 to 1993."
