Jets sign receiver Jeremy Kerley to four-year extension

Tuesday October 21st, 2014

The New York Jets signed wide receiver Jeremy Kerley to a four-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not announced.

Kerley, 25, is in his fourth season since being a fifth-round pick out of TCU in 2011. He has 22 catches for 201 yards and one touchdown this season. In 49 career games, he has amassed 1,865 yards on 150 catches with seven touchdowns. He has also returned two kickoffs and one punt for touchdowns in his career.

Last week, the Jets acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks for a conditional draft pick. He had 22 catches for 133 yards in four games with Seattle this season. After being sidelined with a hip injury for much of last season, Harvin returned a kickoff for a touchdown during the Seahawks' Super Bowl victory.

The Jets have the No. 26 offense in total yards and are ranked No. 31 in passing yards. Second-year quarterback Geno Smith has completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,365 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The Jets are 1-6 and have lost six straight games. They host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
