Jets Extend WR Jeremy Kerley for 4 Years, $16 Million

According to multiple outlets the Jets and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley have agreed to a four year contract extension worth $16 million with $5.4 million of the contract guaranteed.

The reported numbers put Kerley right below recent contracts signed by Julian Edelman ($4.25M per year) and Doug Baldwin ($4.33M). The total dollar figure and guarantee seem to indicate a contract very similar to the one signed by Andre Roberts with the Washington Redskins at $16 million with a $5.25 million guarantee.

I would assume Kerley’s $5.4 million guarantee is a true guarantee and not a combination of full and injury … Read the rest

The OTC NFL Power Rankings: Week 8

With Monday night now in the books we have our official power rankings up to date.

NFL Predictions 2014: Week 7

Last week I went 9-5-1 SU and 9-5-1 ATS. Sadly I split on Thursday when ideally I wanted to lose on both choices and see the Jets win outright.  The yearly record now stands at 62-29-1 and 54-35-3. Onto week 7….

COLTS (-3) over Bengals- The Colts are on a roll right now and clicking in almost every phase of the game while the Bengals have struggled on defense the last two weeks. The Bengals need to right the ship but this is not the team to do it against. Colts 34 Bengals 27

Titans (+5.5) over REDSKINS- … Read the rest

@ZackMooreNFL’s Take on Harvin to the Jets

According to ESPN’s fantasy department, “Harvin only played 59.5 Read the rest
