Jeremy Kerley is staying in the AFC East after reportedly signing a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills.
After returning to the New York Jets last season, Kerley will be taking his talents to a division rival, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The terms of the deal have not been announced.

This will be Kerley’s third team in three years after playing one season with San Francisco in 2016.
The former TCU wide receiver played in eight games for the Jets in 2017. He then served a four-game suspension last season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He didn’t play in the Jets’ final three games after being reinstated. When he was reinstated, he said he didn’t know what caused him to test positive for PEDs, joking that a ghost was behind it.
“I don’t know. There’s a lot of ghosts around here,” Kerley said in December. “Ghost put it in there. You know, the ghost of Christmas past? … I don’t know.”
The Bills need some help at receiver. Their top two players in receiving yards last season were tight end Charles Clay (558) and running back LeSean McCoy (448). While Kerley isn’t a No. 1 receiver, he can be a valuable weapon for whoever starts at quarterback for Buffalo in 2018.
