Jets waive veteran WR Jeremy Kerley as roster exemption expires

Last week, Kerley came off a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on perform-enhancing drugs. He remained ineligible for the team's 31-19 Week 15 defeat to the New Orleans Saints after the Jets used a roster exemption to add him to the practice squad without officially activating him.

Kerley's suspension was originally set to expire December 11 following New York's 23-0 defeat to the Denver Broncos in Week 14.

The Jets on Monday waived wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, parting ways with the veteran wide receiver who was on his second tour with the franchise.

Kerley returned to the Jets this season on a one-year deal.

Kerley was suspended by the league without pay on November 6 after testing positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid.

In seven games, Kerley had 22 receptions for 217 yards and a touchdown. "I don't know. You know the Ghost of Christmas Past?" A ghost might have put it in me.

Kerley became expendable while suspended as Chad Hansen emerged as a capable No. 3 option for the Jets. The Jets were eliminated from playoff contention with Sunday's loss, which could have contributed to the decision to move on from Kerley and yet the young receivers continue playing.
