Lions Sign WR Jeremy Kerley


The Detroit Lions officially announced the signing of WR Jeremy Kerley on Monday.


Adam Caplan of ESPN is reporting that the Lions have agreed to terms on a contract with former WR Jeremy Kerley.

  • Kerley receives a one-year deal worth over $1 million, according to Caplan.

Kerley reportedly had interest from the Bills and Chiefs, but it appears the Lions stepped in and got a deal done.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Kerley to a contract won’t factor into the Lions’ 2017 compensatory picks.

Kerley, 27, was in the final year of his four-year, $16 million contract that included $5.4 million guaranteed when he was released in a move that cleared $1.3 million cap space for the Jets.

In 2015, Kerley appeared in all 16 games for the Jets and totaled 16 receptions for 152 yards and a touchdown. He also contributed 411 punt return yards.
