Jets Sign a WR to 53-Man Roster off of the Broncos Practice Squad

The New York Jets signed a WR to their 53-man roster, Eron Riley from the Broncos practice squad.  Hmmmmm.

Now this is an interesting pickup.  Just this week with the Derrick Mason trade, the Jets claimed that they made the trade due to Jeremy Kerley stepping up.  They made Jeremy the number 3 and the Jets seemed to be set at WR.  They also re-signed Patrick Turner to the practice squad, so why make a move and pickup another WR?
