In Rookie WR Jeremy Kerley, the New York Jets believe they have the replacement for departed Brad Smith.
Now, it’s up to Kerley to prove them right.
Kerley, a fifth-round pick out of TCU who collected 1,300 yards receiving, 306 yards on the ground, and also ran back two TDs as a punt returner, has impressed all at Jets camp so far.
“He’s a baller” said Jets QB Mark Sanchez. “There’s always one big surprise at camp. For a guy who didn’t know much of the playbook, he’s picked it up really fast.”
The Jets have been using Kerley in the slot on the first team and hope that he can play alongside Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, Kerley made “catch after catch in practice, displaying acceleration and exceptional cutting ability.”
