Former Jets WR Jeremy Kerley, whose playing time mysteriously vanished in 2015, blamed a bad relationship with then-OC Chan Gailey. "Chan was just one of those type of guys that has his mind set up before he sees whoever's there," Kerley told Alex Marvez and Phil Savage on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "2015 was by far my worst year in the league. I absolutely hated the NFL. I wasn't getting any playing time at receiver. I was just strictly punt return. Me and Chan Gailey were always … We didn't see eye-to-eye. I didn't have a lot of respect for him. It was probably the same for him."

Call from Trump triggers shift in Jets' oversight

Jets owner Woody Johnson will be nominated by President Donald Trump to serve as U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom. If Johnson is approved by the Senate, his brother, Christopher, will oversee the day-to-day operations of the team.

So how will the Jets be affected if Woody Johnson heads to the United Kingdom as U.S. ambassador? Probably not much at all; it's not as if he's a day-to-day fixture at the team facility. He'd be consulted on big decisions, but his brother, Christopher Johnson, would handle the day-to-day stuff as the new chairman/CEO. He's a minority owner and passionate about the team, people tell me. I've spoken to him a couple of times. He's personable, engaging and a good listener.

The Jets released a statement, confirming that Christopher Johnson -- Woody Johnson's younger brother -- will become the chairman and CEO if Woody is nominated and confirmed as U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom.

Jets owner Woody Johnson will be nominated by President Trump to serve as U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, the White House announced Thursday night. This is no surprise. In January, Trump informally revealed his plans to nominate Johnson -- a major Republican donor -- to the post. Senate approval is required.

Jets LB Lorenzo Mauldin, accused of punching a man in an April 2 nightclub altercation, was charged with misdemeanor assault after turning himself this morning, according to a New York Police Department spokesman. Per the arrest report, Mauldin allegedly punched the man in the face. An August 16 court appearance is scheduled. Previously, Mauldin was sued by the alleged victim, a Queens man who suffered multiple facial fractures. Mauldin's attorney said his client witnessed they altercation, but didn't commit the assault.

Former Jets great Curtis Martin was among seven Hall of Famers who were greeted and addressed by Pope Francis today at the Vatican. The Pro Football Hall of Fame became the first American sports organization to have an audience with the Pope. "This was a wonderful day," Martin said in a statement. "Just to have an opportunity to shake his hand and to feel his presence in person was a blessing. He is the closest thing we know to Jesus walking the earth."

A tanking guide to the NFL, and a warning

The Jets are shedding established veterans -- and money -- and appear to be aiming for the No. 1 overall pick in 2018. Is it the right move? Even without a lottery in the NFL, tanking isn't so easy.

Adding depth to their injury-plagued receiving corps, the Jets have signed former Bears WR Marquess Wilson. The 6-foot-4 Wilson has flashed upside, but has battled injuries. He finished last season on IR with a broken foot. In four seasons, he has 56 catches, 777 yards and three touchdowns. The Jets were banged up in minicamp, as rookies ArDarius Stewart (groin, thumb surgery) and Chad Hansen (knee) sat out.
