Bills cut Jeremy Kerley

Jeremy Kerley‘s stint in Buffalo lasted one game.

Kerley, the veteran wide receiver who signed with the Bills this offseason, was released today.

The 29-year-old Kerley was in the starting lineup for the Bills in Week One but didn’t do much, catching two passes for just seven yards on a day when the Bills’ entire passing offense was atrocious.

Kerley has played six seasons with the Jets and one with the 49ers. He’ll now be a free agent and can sign with any team. He’ll probably catch on somewhere, given his experience as both a receiver and punt returner, although some teams may figure that if he can’t help the pathetic Bills passing game, he probably can’t help anyone else, either.

With the spot Kerley’s departure opens up on the 53-player roster, the Bills have called defensive tackle Robert Thomas up from the practice squad. Thomas will be eligible to play tomorrow against the Chargers.

  1. He had a QB throwing to him that’s marginally better than I am. I don’t think anyone is gonna look at him and say, gosh you couldn’t help the Bills situation you suck.

  2. If he can still do return duties the Patriots might look at that. I dont see him learning enough playbook to matter though. Its just the returns that might earn him the look.

  3. Yeah, utterly useless, I mean, a couple of Bills (Jones, Thomas) caught over 20yds! – although in Thomas’ case it was all from one catch. Still, now that Kerley’s gone it’s all fixed.

  4. Seattle will probably ask him to come in for a visit. They need a slot receiver. Kerley did not do much because the Bills offensive stinks. They got rid of Tyrod Taylor but they don’t have anyone who is any better yet.

  5. That’s too bad. He can thing God is on longer that sorry team. Maybe he’ll retire and come back home to coach the Hippos.

    afc south, west and north were weaker than usual and afc weaker overall than nfc

  7. I’m not sure why they cut a starter to make room for a practice squad player, but maybe the writing was already on the wall and they were planning on releasing him anyway.

  8. Here’s a guy I’d like to see the Pats take a flier on. He was never a top tier receiver but I remember quite a few games for the Jets where he was killin’ the Pats and making clutch catches. He could potentially have a role like Amendola did if he can learn some of the playbook.

    That was like 5+ years ago. Again, once he used his leverage on the Jets, where the Jets overpaid over it like they did with Wilkerson, etc, they realized the guy checked out.

    I think once you check out, can’t make the Lions, can’t make the Bills, it’s very unlikely you can then flip the switch to become a Patriot.

    It’s possible, but very unlikely.

    Can’t get separation. He was one of those entitled Jets guys with Wilkerson and others who took the Jets money and then checked out.

    ===============================

    This is not the same team as last season.

  13. What are the Bills doing? None of their transactions or moves make any sense. Do they have a plan or are they just flying with the wind?

    If Corey Coleman can find a job, why can’t Kerley?

    Age?

    Why is Kerley choosing crap teams like SF and Buffalo? Wouldn’t it make sense if he did have something to offer, to be banging down NE’s door at the league minimum like Jordan Matthews just did?

    Or now, Coleman?

    Coleman wisely chose NE over Philly.

    Not a coincidence why. He knows if he puts his head down, it’s his best chance to save his career, or he’s done, because BB gives you ever chance under the moon to stick, if you do have talent.

    The Ravens lack talent. Their only good draft was in 2013, yielding Smith and Mosley and now Mosley is a FA with no contract.

    They patched it all with veterans on the back side of their career and hang onto old man Suggs to mask deficiencies.

    .
    pats will grab him. get the Bills offensive plays and the jets, then dump him.
    it’s what they do…
    ============

    They already play the Bills & Jets twice a year. I’m certain they already know what they run.

  17. Josh is looking really good. Has a lot to learn but holding his own and the promise he shows is exciting!
