Jeremy Kerley to sign with Jets

Share

The New York Jets brought back veteran Jeremy Kerley on Tuesday in an effort to revamp a wide receiver corps that has been beset by injuries and suspensions this offseason. The 28-year-old was a fifth-round pick of the Jets' back in 2011. Get used to seeing this guy in the green and white, because a certain wide receiver and punt returner is back for a second tour of duty.

Kerley signed with the Lions as an unrestricted free agent in March 2016 but was traded to San Francisco five months later.

Kerley had a falling out with former Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey before he left NY, but he must not have had an issue with head coach Todd Bowles.

Firefighters said erratic fire behavior caused by strong, gusting winds made it hard to predict what areas may be at risk. Firefighters sent additional resources to that neighborhood for structure protection and to assist with evacuations.

NY first acquired Kerley in the fifth-round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He registered 64 receptions for 667 yards and three touchdowns during his year in San Francisco.

To make room, the team announced that Julian Howsare has been waived. New York's other receivers are Robby Anderson, Chad Hansen, Charone Peake, ArDarius Stewart, Damore'ea Stringfellow and Kalif Raymond. Kerley is still one of the best return men in the National Football League, and he's proven that he can hang at a high level at wide receiver as well. As Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com noted, the organization gave him $2.8 million in guaranteed salary and then cut him before he played any part of the contract.
