Bills sign Kerley and Palepoi

The Buffalo Bills began addressing their needs at receiver by signing free agent Jeremy Kerley to a one-year contract as part of a series of moves in opening their off-season conditioning program.

Kerley, 29, had 22 receptions for 217 yards and a touchdown in eight games for the New York Jets last season.

This will be Kerley's third team in three years after playing one season with San Francisco in 2016.

Kerley served a four-game NFL suspension last season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. While Kerley isn't a No. 1 receiver, he can be a valuable weapon for whoever starts at quarterback for Buffalo in 2018.

He led the Jets in receptions and receiving yards in 2012 and 2013 working a good deal out of the slot before his role was reduced under the club's new coaching staff. He also has experience as a punt returner. The former Los Angeles Chargers defender has been a solid rotational player throughout his three-year career, recording 53 tackles.

The Bills on Monday also announced re-signing four exclusive rights free agents, including defensive end Eddie Yarbrough, who started six games past year. The defensive tackle missed the 2015 season with a fractured foot. He was Lotulelei's backup in college at Utah during the 2012 season.
