How will we ever replace his 50 yards receiving every year? Just because he's a local guy that you like doesn't make him any less jaggaliscious. Guy is lucky he collected NFL checks for four years.

Kid is talented because of unfortunate concussions his career was hindered here. 

Your right but he's got 50 more yards than you will ever have in your NFL career.

He's been active for 35 NFL games and has UNDER 250yards receiving. How talented was he or are you just overrating some scrub because he's a local guy? If he was from anywhere else you wouldn't even be posting in this thread.

Whatever...... I watched him play at Monmouth for 3 years kid has talent thats all and on top of it he's a nice kid. 

Far from a scrub. 

How many downs of NFL football have you played? 

Sorry I rooted for a local kid to do some good in the NFL especially for the NY Jets.

Literally the dumbest argument ever. How many have you played? Do you see how dumb that is?

Nice kids get cut from the NFL all of the time. Sterling had his chance and had to be one of the most unproductive TE's over a four year span. He averaged about 7 yards PER GAME when he was active throughout his career. He's less than a jag no matter how nice he is and the fact you rooted for him. So did everyone here at some point.

Unless we're watching the all-22 , we don't know what the coaches see or don't see, nor what they are looking for. After how many years of sh*tshow tight end play oh, I actually thought Neal Sterling flashed and looked pretty good. I never saw him play before never heard his name but when he showed up in the preseason he looked pretty good to me.

He is not a bad player, bad blocker yes but He can make plays in the receiving game . In reality there probably saving his life . His concussion history is extensive. Plenty of teams could of used his services didn’t make a play at him in FA. 

Long shot to make this roster anyway . We just know Tomlinson is gonna make some how  . We can’t shake that guy for nothing lol

I’m sorry but if you can’t block as a TE gtfo. It’s the NfL, blocking is about will and determination, if you aren’t blocking you simply don’t want it badly enough.

He's been here long enough.....FIRE JOE! 

Too soon?

Never. lol

The real question in my mind is does Joe Douglas now feel a need to make some moves just for the sake of making moves.  He's been hired, he's on the job, but I think most of us would agree that outside of a couple spots where the Jets should look to upgrade the roster looks better than it's looked in several years.

Can Joe focus on a couple key things like Center and CB, and adding depth or does he feel a need to purge mid/late round Maccagnan picks even if they've just gotten here and they're still considered developing?  I'm thinking of guys like Nathan Shepherd, Fatukasi, Eli McGuire, etc.  Will Douglas have any affinity whatsoever for intriguing picks like Blake Cashman and Bless Austin?

NFL rumors: Kansas City Chiefs sign former Jets tight end

The Kansas City Chiefs added former Jets tight end and Belmar native, Neal Sterling, to their roster on Thursday.

The Monmouth University alum was waived by the Jets on Tuesday.

Sterling cleared waivers following his second stint with the Jets. The former college wide receiver will now join the Chiefs’ organization for the second time in his career.

Sterling produced six catches for 47 receiving yards last season. He appeared in only five games but made four starts for the Jets. Sterling initially joined the Jets in 2017 but he was cut midway through that season and eventually signed with the Chiefs’ practice squad.

After a few weeks in Kansas City, Sterling rejoined the Jets for a second tenure. Over the course of his two seasons with the Jets, Sterling appeared in 16 games (five starts) and produced 12 catches for 129 receiving yards.

 


Prior to joining the Jets in 2017, Sterling spent his first two NFL seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who selected him in the seventh-round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Sterling appeared in 19 games for the Jaguars during his time in Jacksonville. The 6-foot-4, 257-pound tight end produced 12 catches for 110 yards and contributed on special teams.

In Kansas City, Sterling will look to earn a depth job at tight end. He will compete with the likes of Blake Bell, Deon Yelder, David Wells, Nick Keizer and John Lovett to win a job behind All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce.

The Manasquan High School alum is still only 27 years old.
