New York Jets veteran wide receiver Jeremy Kerley has been cut and the coaches signal that they are done with Christian Hackenberg.

The New York Jets have officially parted ways with veteran wide receiver Jeremy Kerley for the second time in his career.

Kerley, I only have one thing to say to you…

No hard feelings or anything but I wasn’t exactly enthralled when the Jets re-signed you earlier this season. It’s nothing personal, it’s more so because of the construction of the current roster:

You just don’t have any place on this team man.

The Jets wide receiving corps is young and talented. While you’re on the doorstep of 30. Gang Green needs to continue the youth movement and this was the right move. Although they could’ve saved the headline by never signing you in the first place, but we’ll leave that alone.

While the impact of the move this season will be marginalized with only two games to go with a quarterback in Bryce Petty who may not even be on the team next year, it was still the right move.

Speaking of the quarterback situation, the Jets have essentially put the final nail in the coffin of Christian Hackenberg.

He won’t consider playing him right now? It’s Week 16 man, if he’s not considering playing him now, he’s not considering him at all.

For better or for worse, the Jets have given up on the development of Hackenberg. Another second-round pick down the dumps for the green and white.

Thanks to the New York Jets Media Relations Department for more Todd Bowles comments here from his press conference:

On if he considers it odd that Hackenberg has not played…

“No, I don’t consider it odd.”

On how he would consider it…

“I don’t consider it at all. You may consider it odd, I don’t. We have a backup quarterback, (Hackenberg) is waiting to get his chance. That’s really all there is for me.”

It’s safe to wonder if he’ll ever get his chance with the Jets.
