I think they take Wilson out as a returner and put in JJ
The only way Jernigan can make the team is to be on special teams, but chances are he doesn't make the team.
I can believe there's an 8 page JJ thread. lol
maybe the FO is being patient with him. bc when preseason/the training camps come along, he is almost always mentioned as one of the top performers, startr ot not.
he even started the week 1 preseason game last yr iirc, he at least was targeted in the endzone. we all know it was a PI lol...
nah, but he does have amazing lateral quickness, and very good speed. he's like a poor mans tevon austin really. can use him a multitude of ways. i guess the FO wants him to be a legit WR before getting some of the other stuff on field like the end arounds, and out of the backfield type stuff...he can get seperation bc of his quickness/burst/agility. i think that the game is speeding up for him when he is expecting the pass bc thats pretty much the only time his feet get happy...
Jernigan is toast, unless injuries create a spot for him. He isn't that good of a receiver, his routes aren't good, and his hands are suspect. It helps him that Hixon and Barden are gone, but the Giants will still bring in 3 or 4 more WR that aren't even on the roster yet, and it is clear they have no attachment to Jernigan.
Jernigan has muffed some punts yeah but he's never dropped a pass yet. Just last preseason Eli said he was seeing flashes of brilliance from JJ.... LINK
Jernigan has only been on the roster 2 years and is a slot receiver. The reason he hasn't shown much is because Cruz has never missed a game since he's been on the team. He's also been behind Nicks, Manningham, Randle and Hixon who all are better suited out-wide. Jernigan WILL make the team because if Cruz were to ever get hurt, he'd be the main guy for that role and is currently the only back-up there. Not to mention he was being used in 4 receiver sets last year and they were finding more creative ways to use him (reverses, bubble screens), which will only be an asset to the team with the way the league has gotten more creative with the pistol, read-option etc...type offenses. The Giants will not get cut him with only 4 current receivers who have any grasp of the system and replace him UDFA's....they may add a guy because they carried 6 last year but it won't be at the expense of JJ.....I GUARANTEE it.
