Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly declared that his doctors have informed him that he's cancer-free.

The Hall of Fame quarterback had part of his jaw surgicallyremoved last year after being diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. He's been undergoing chemotherapy.

“This is some of the greatest news I’ve ever gotten,” Kelly said in a statement. “It’s been a long road, and I’m still not back to one hundred percent, but I have a lot to be thankful for.”
