Found February 10, 2012 on Turn On The Jets:
For all the talk us Jets fans have been dealing with in terms of coaches and players staying or leaving in the past couple of weeks. Here are three players who will be around next year that should be ready to take their play to the next level - Jeremy Kerley - Prior to the departure of Derrick Mason, Kerley saw limited action. However, after Mason was traded to Houston, Jet fans saw just how much potential Kerley had. Working out of the slot position, Kerley managed to haul in 29 receptions for 314 yards and one touchdown. Not only did Kerley show how bright of a future he has with the Jets, he also provides the offense with game breaking potential, something this offense lacks. Kerley demonstrated his versatility by running the Wildcat effectively and connecting on his only throw of the season for 41 yards. I believe Kerley has the ability to be a solid slot wide receiver for many years to come with the Jets. Muhammad Wilkerson - Even though he looked overmatched at times this season, overall Wilkerson made a strong impression as a rookie, Wilkerson is just 22 years old and has plenty of room for improvement. He started in all 16 games for the Jets this season, making a total of 49 tackles and 3 sacks, including one for a safety in Week 2 against the Jags. This is a guy who has a ton of natural ability at the DE position, and it’s important that he continues to develop because we all know after watching the Super Bowl this past Sunday, it takes a solid D-Line to beat Brady and the Pats. Jeff Cumberland - His season was cut short after just three games due to a torn Achilles. It was unfortunate to see because I think a lot of people saw a big upside to Cumberland. He will be entering just his third season in the NFL next year, and barring any setbacks from his recovery, I fully expect to see Cumberland a part of the mix next year, having both Dustin Keller and Jeff Cumberland gives the Jets a solid duo at the TE spot.

Jets Full Page Ad Classy Move, Could be Motivational Tool

The day after the Giants paraded down the “Canyon of Heroes,” Jets fans awoke to this full page ad in the Daily News.
