Jim Kelly & Family Write A Book About What It's Like to Be 'Kelly Tough'

Jim Kelly is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. He played in 4 Super Bowls, inducted into the Hall Of Fame in 2002. But in the last couple years, Kelly has gotten a lot of notoriety for his battle against cancer. There have been some very tough moments, and some really heartwarming ones…like at the NFL Draft a couple months ago…a moment described here by our buddy Rich Eisen.

Jim Kelly's daughter, Erin, has written a book, ‘Kelly Tough' and it chronicles how the family dealt with Kelly's battle.
