Taken by the Giants in the third round of the 2011 NFL draft, Jernigan has had only one semi-productive season, which was when he caught 29 passes for 329 yards and two touchdowns. In 2014, Jernigan only caught six passes for 40 yards. Jernigan will be a free agent when the new league year begins on March 10.

The Giants filled the openings on the roster by promoting wide receiver Julian Talley and linebacker Dan Fox from the practice squad.
