It is a double standard. It seems as though our regime is okay with this type of thing because it is directly related to trying to get on the field and play better for the team. It is a character thing, but very different from a guy punching his wife in the face. I suppose that is the difference. 

 

 

The difference is guys who have passion for the game and their team as opposed to lazy, me players out to just collect a paycheck. 

 

I think that's where the disconnect came with Watkins, Dareus and even rumblings this was the case with Glenn after he got paid.

 

But at the same time isn't their rumblings of that with Star?

Makes sense. I had not heard that about Star...maybe it was about his conditioning or something?

@buffalobills: 

We've signed WR Jeremy Kerley and DT Tenny Palepoi each to one-year contracts.

 

Championship!! at least a Divisional one!

Good depth signing. Played pretty good for the 49ers if I'm not mistaken. Not sure how he did for the jets 

 

Not much for the second stint, but he had Kearse, Anderson, and Sefarian-Jenkins ahead of him and only played half a season.  Fumbled more than one wants to see.  The key issue is he was suspended 4 games for PED, and released after he was reinstated. 

 

His first stint for the Jets, he did OK as a punt returner.

It appears to me that they look for “football character”... not necessarily choir boys.

Disadvatages of Kerley-

 

Coming off suspension, Getting older in years, should not be relied upon as top 3 option. 

 

Advantages of Kerley-

Return Skills, Some success at slot in the past, does not think he is lizard.

Agreed and makes the WR corp not as bad now. Figure something like Benjamin, Jones, Kerley, Holmes, Streater, & Reilly. If they can draft a WR in the 2nd or 3rd the QB may have something to throw to haha.

that right there might be the worst wr corp in the NFL....

Actually I think Kerley would do very well as the 3rd option guy

OMG, did not see that coming.   "Lizard Belief Status" must now be exampled as a WR criterion.  Too true.  :rolleyes:

Kerley is a slot receiver type.  He's pretty small and lacks speed.  He's not going to win may foot races on deep routes, but he's very quick and can get separation underneath.

A receiver who can get separation is really what our WRs were lacking.

I really thought this was an excellent signing especially considering what is available right now.....Kerley is very underrated.

I agree, I also remember him tearing us up a couple games when w/ the Jets

.....Kerley was suspended for 4 games due to a PED violation.[17] He was released by the Jets on December 18, 2017 after being reinstated from suspension.[18]

 

This is good - means he does not count toward comp pick formula and does not help the Jest.

I suspect he's in good company as he gets "older in years."

Decent move to fill up that camp roster. Let's see what he's got.

 

Right now he's probably #2 on the depth/talent chart and #1 in our hearts. :)

I didn't think much of Kerley until I seen him play in San Fran.  I was impressed when I would watch him.  Always seemed to find the space and had good hands.

 

IMO, it is a nice signing.  Him or Clay will end up with a spot, probably not both.
