The #New York Jets once again upgraded their awful receiving core as they brought back a familiar face. Plus, the #Washington Redskins gave out a contract extension and the #arizona cardinals beefed up their offensive line by signing a veteran player.

Jets bring back veteran Kerley

The New York Jets have agreed to a one-year deal to bring back veteran wider receiver Jeremy Kerley, who was surprisingly cut by the San Francisco 49ers. This move to bring the 28-year-old Kerley, who played for the Jets from 2011-15, also comes only a few days after the team traded for Seattle Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse.

Kerley is coming off one of his best seasons in which he set career highs in games started (13), receptions (64) and tied his career high with three receiving touchdowns.

During his five seasons with the Jets, Kerley played in 74 games and started 24 of them. He recorded 182 receptions for 2,225 yards and 9 touchdowns. He also gives the Jets a veteran punter returner with Lucky Whitehead on injured reserve.

Redskins give Thompson contract extension

The Washington Redskins and backup running back Chris Thompson have agreed to a two-year contract extension that was first reported by Master Tesfatsion of the “Washingon Post.” This extension comes after he signed his one-year, $2.75 million restricted tender in the offseason.

Thompson was drafted by the Redskins in the fifth round of the 2013 draft out of Florida State and has since developed into the team's third down back. The 5-foot-8 back is coming off the best season of his career in which he set highs in carries (68), rushing yards (356), rushing touchdowns (3), receptions (49) and receiving yards (349).

Cardinals bring in veteran Boone

The Arizona Cardinals announced that they have signed veteran guard Alex Boone to a one-year deal. Boone spent last season with the Minnesota Vikings, starting all 13 games that he played in. However, he was released by the team on Saturday after he reportedly decided to take a pay cut.

The 30-year-old spent his first six seasons in the NFL with the rival San Francisco 49ers, playing in 77 games and starting 59 of them. Boone's role with the Cardinals is still unknown, although he has experience playing at both guard positions.

He could compete for a starting job or maybe just be a veteran backup. Boone's best season game in 2012, when he started every game as the 49ers went to the Super Bowl. That year he was named a second team All-Pro by Pro Football Focus.
