49ers reach deal with wide receiver Jeremy Kerley

The 49ers don’t have any quarterbacks, but they have another guy for one to throw to.

According to Adam Caplan and Adam Schefter of ESPN, the 49ers have agreed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract with wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, keeping him off the free agent market.

Kerley was moderately productive last year, catching 64 passes for 667 yards and three touchdowns. Of course, that may be proof that everything’s relative, as they had one of the worst passing games in the NFL last season.

The 28-year-old Kerley spent his first five years with the Jets.

    Poor guy. He should have played hardball in the hopes they’d release him so he could vacate that hole.

    I’m not mad at this.

    Not a Niners fan, and that franchise has a LOT of things to fix.
    I do have to say, however, that I was surprised and impressed by just how effective Jeremy Kerley was at times last year, especially playing in an anemic offense.
    A sound signing, I think.

    Now they just have to make a deal with Larry and Moe.

    One of the very few players that deserves to come back from that hot mess of a team that was last years Niners.

    Kerley said a while back he loved SF. Being a 9ers fan myself it’s good to know there is at least one other fan left. lol… Good job SF.

    LOL, didn’t the coach and GM say they weren’t impressed by the 49er WR corp just a few days ago? Now he is getting almost as much money as Goledn Tate did when he left Seattle for Detroit.

    As a Jet fan who saw a lot of his game, Kerley was always one of those sneaky elusive & quick receivers w/ great hands.

    Top 15 slot receiver – also can return punts.

    As a TCU fan who watched him for years I’ve always said in the right offense with the right QB he’s a better Cole Beasley.

    Severely underrated WR…9ers got a steal.

    Jeremy Kerley loves playing for anemic offenses.

    Oh well, at least he’s getting paid.
