Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, who rejoined the New York Jets last week upon returning from a four-game league suspension, was waived Monday by the team.

Kerley's one-week roster exemption expired at 4 p.m. Monday. Instead of activating him to the 53-man roster, the Jets decided to part ways with the veteran receiver and punt returner.

He was the Jets' No. 3 receiver until Nov. 6, when he was suspended for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Kerley claimed he didn't knowingly take any illegal substances, saying last week that "a ghost" was responsible for his positive test.

Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley will be suspended by the NFL, according to multiple reports, though it remains unclear how long he will be suspended, and what policy he violated.

Kerley, 28, began his career with the Jets, from 2011-15. He was with the 49ers last season, after spending the early part of the offseason with the Lions.

The Jets have turned to a familiar face to add depth to their receiving corps, as they signed Jeremy Kerley to a one-year contract.

Fantasy Impact:

Kerley, 28, who was released by the Jets in 2015 after playing five seasons with the team, played last year for the 49ers. Kerley had initially signed with the Lions after being released by the Jets, but was traded to the 49ers before the start of the season. He had 64 catches for 667 yards and three touchdowns in San Francisco last year. The 49ers released Kerley on Saturday.

49ers QB Brian Hoyer takes receivers to Texas

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

‘Tis the season for off-site passing camps, and 49ers starter Brian Hoyer is taking his guys to Texas.

According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Hoyer gathered the 49ers skill position players in Dallas Monday for three days of work to carry them through the break before training camp opens.

“It is such a long period of time that you want to get together at least for some period,” Hoyer said. “We’ll get as many guys together as we can. We can’t accommodate everybody [because] people are coming in from all across the country. So we’re going to get together, get three days in, and then come back ready to go July 27.”

Related players: Jeremy Kerley, Marquise Goodwin, Vance McDonald

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, it's not an impressive list of names, but Hoyer was brought in because he knows HC Kyle Shanahan's system. It doesn't look like 49ers will be flying off your board early when draft day comes around, but there could be some waiver value after a few weeks of the season go by.

49ers WR Jeremy Kerley (ankle) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Kerley will be fine to face the Bills, but with Colin Kaepernick under center, will he see the same workload? The slot receiver is a focal point of Chip Kelly’s offense, so we believe so, but Kaepernick still has to deliver the ball.

49ers Beat: Slot WR Jeremy Kerley 'in position to see a lot of passes'

Friday, September 9, 2016, 9:54am

Sacramento Bee - [Full Article]

When the 49ers played their third preseason game two weeks ago, receiver Jeremy Kerley was a member of the Detroit Lions. Now he’s a 49ers starter. At two spots.

He’s the team’s top option at slot receiver – a feature role in Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense – and also will handle punt returns when the Rams visit Levi’s Stadium on Monday.

Kerley is in position to see a lot of passes. During spring and summer practices, the 49ers’ top slot receiver, Bruce Ellington, was a frequent target of quarterback Blaine Gabbert and seemed poised for a big season. He's the only player on the roster who fits Kelly’s ideal mold for a slot receiver: rabbit quick, a fast accelerator and – especially critical this week – mentally sharp.

“I think he’s a wily veteran. He’s been around,” Kelly said of Kerley. “I think having Curtis and Bob here has really helped him. But you can tell right away that Jeremy’s a pretty smart football player.”

Kerley’s best season was 2012 when he had 56 catches for 827 yards for the Jets.

Fantasy Impact:

Kerley is worth consideration in deep PPR formats, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy factor in most leagues.

49ers WR Jeremy Kerley starting in the slot

Jeremy Kerley is entering just his second week with the 49ers, but he is already the team’s starting slot receiver and punt returner.

Actually, Kerley is the 49ers' only slot receiver and punt returner.

The 49ers released their first unofficial depth chart on Tuesday, as the club begins preparations to open the regular season on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact:

This was the role that Bruce Ellington was going to fill before getting injured. The agile Kerley had a 56-827-2 season with the Jets in 2012.
