SANTA CLARA (KRON) — Saturday morning the San Francisco 49ers announced they have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with wide receiver Jeremy Kerely.

We are very excited to be able to keep a player and teammate like Jeremy in red and gold. As we evaluated the roster, his production on the field really impressed us and we believe he is a great fit for our scheme. As we learned more and more about him, it became obvious his teammates have a great deal of respect for Jeremy as well. He is a true pro who is an asset to this team on offense, special teams and in the locker room.” – 49ers General Manager John Lynch

 

In 2016 Kerley appeared in all 16 games and started 13 of those games for the 49ers.

He led the team with a career-high 64 receptions for 667 yards and three touchdowns.

As the team’s primary punt returner, he returned 21 punts for 158 yards.

The 49ers acquired Kerley in a trade with the Detroit Lions this past August.
