FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Jeremy Kerley had his sights set on returning to the New York Jets the moment he was cut by the San Francisco 49ers.

The veteran wide receiver got on his phone and immediately called Todd Bowles to tell the coach he wanted to come back. Then, Kerley started making calls and sending texts to anyone who’d listen to his desires for a reunion in green and white.

“I was on my phone, looking for every Jets contact I had,” a smiling Kerley said Wednesday after his first practice back with New York. “I was trying to hit up everybody.”
