Jets add a receiver, but won’t rule Kerley out yet

The Jets aren’t willing to say wide receiver Jeremy Kerley won’t play Thursday against the Patriots.

But they signed a replacement for a guy who didn’t practice, just in case.

According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, Jets coach Rex Ryan wouldn’t rule Kerley out¬†after taking a shot to the head Sunday, and complaining of concussion symptoms Monday.

But Ryan’s hedging seems like a bit of a formality, since they signed cover at the position. They brought back wide receiver Ben Obomanu, who was part of the team’s final cuts just over a week ago.

They released linebacker Scott Solomon to make room for the extra wideout.

    Just out of curiosity, what would your innuendo have been if they hadn’t signed anyone?

    The Jets quarterback situation hasn’t looked good since…well…since as long as I can remember. That being said, this organization needs to do a better job of providing their quarterbacks with a solid receiver or two, as well as a threat in the running game that can keep defenses honest. How can these QBs succeed with such lackluster weaponry?

    And nowhere does it say whom this reciever was that they added. What a well written article! You have one job, to report the news, why do the complete opposite?

    I wonder what exactly Brandon Lloyd is up to? I mean it is not like he is too old…

    @multiplemiggs you have one job to do and that is read the complete article before commenting on it. Why do the complete opposite?

    Reports are Brandon Lloyd has pretty much decided to call it a career. Going with ex-Seahawk over an ex-Rex favorite like Braylon Edwards points towards Idzik having control over player personnel.

    Obomanu? The last piece of the puzzle. Now I smell Super Bowl……..

    Braylon Edwards is also an ex-Seahawk. Your point is invalid.

    Where’s BRAYLON? Why not let Hands of Stone join the Circus ?
