Lions agree on one-year contract with WR Jeremy Kerley
The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms on a one-year, $1 million contract with former New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, the team announced.
The deal was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Caplan.
The Jets released Kerley, 27, after five years with the team. Kerley had his least productive season in 2015, catching 16 passes for 152 yards in 16 games with one start.
Kerley has primarily been a bench player over his years with the Jets, and figures to maintain that role with the Lions behind Golden Tate and recently signed receiver Marvin Jones.
Kerley visited the Chiefs and the Bills before deciding to sign with the Lions.
