    Agreed. With Wilson's increased workload he will be too valuable to be the returner. Jernigan is very shifty.

    And if he wasn't really a receiver in college (I don't disagree with you), then why was he picked in the 3rd round? That's an awfully high pick for a "project".

    I submit he was picked that high because he was an outstanding returner in college and exhibited high potential to convert his speed, quickness and athleticism into a good #2 or 3 receiver. At the time we were in desperate need of a consistent returner who could give us good field advantage more often than not, as well as a third receiver (the draft was before we knew we were losing Smith).
    .
    After 2 full seasons (pre season or not his first year), he has shown little-to-nothing in either role. After 2 full seasons, Jernigan is exactly like Sinorace was at this time in his career with the Giants.

    Do we really need to take up roster room with him another 2 more years before moving on?

    I think not.

    NEXT!

    Reese has said he will take talent and find a place for it rather than fill a need if there is enough talent.

    He actually didn't return punts until his senior year.

    He was a kick returner/receiver/running back for most of his career

    And he's had 10 kick returns for 250 yards in the nfl, which is pretty good. That's top 10 in the league.

    He hasent even got a chance to return a punt yet, every one he had had was a fair catch.

    And as for getting rid of him, you don't "move on" from a second year 3rd round pick. He's essentially free to keep and has upside


    As for his production his first two years... Amani Toomer had a total of 635 yards in his first three years combined. And he was nearly a first round pick

    Way to early to move on. He may be the Giants future in the slot if they are unable to resign Cruz.

    He will most likely finish out his rookie contract no matter what
