Will the New York Jets Unleash the Jeremy Kerley Wildcat This Week?

The Jets utilized Jeremy Kerley in a Wildcat package 4 plays in the second half of the preseason game against the Giants. It was largely successful, picking up 39 yards. Kerley completed a pass, ran the ball, and executed a successful pitch. This was only preseason not against the top competition. It is no guarantee to be successful.

It is still unclear why the Jets have yet to attempt to utilize this package with Kerley so far, particularly with the offense struggling. It is far from a silver bullet to cure all that ails the offense. Even so, with the conventional offense struggling, why not mix things up by putting it into a playmaker's hands every now and then? Perhaps this will provide the team with a sorely needed big play.

If nothing else, it will provide an indirect benefit to the offense. Future opponents will have to dedicate time preparing to stop the package in practice, which takes time away for preparing for the conventional offense.

Do you think we will see the new Wildcat this week?
