With the Marlins embarking on a road trip Wednesday night, and Hurricane Irma showing signs of heading to South Florida, the team will allow families of the players and staff to join them on the trip.
Wary of Hurricane Irma’s potential effect on the South Florida area, the Panthers’ ownership chartered a plane and will take some players, staff and other team employees to Boston on Friday.
ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reports the game likely will be rescheduled for Nov. 19, when both teams have a bye week, according to league sources. The NFL has yet to announce an official decision.
Concerned about their young receiving corps, the Jets have added two veterans in the past five days — Kerley and Jermaine Kearse, acquired from the Seattle Seahawks in the Sheldon Richardson trade. Kerley also could be a candidate to return punts.
Kerley was phased out of the Jets’ offense in 2015 and released after the season, landing in San Francisco, where he caught 64 passes for 667 yards and three touchdowns. The Niners liked him enough to sign him to a three-year, $10.5 million deal in the offseason, which made his ouster a surprise.
In late June, Kerley blasted the now-retired Chan Gailey in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, saying he was “pissed off” because he didn’t get much playing time in 2015. He called Cheap Lacrosse Jerseys it “by far my worst year in the league. I absolutely hated the NFL. I wasn’t getting any playing time at Cheap Kids Baseball Jerseys receiver; I was just strictly punt return. Me and Chan Gailey were always … we didn’t see eye-to-eye. I didn’t have a lot of respect for him. It was probably the same for him.”
