Seahawks re-signed WR Jermaine Kearse to a three-year, $13.5 million contract.
Kearse, 26, finished last season with 49 catches for 685 yards and five TDs, making the most of his 68 targets. He dropped just four regular season passes and has only seven drops over the past two years. Kearse drew limited market interest because he isn't particularly big (6'1/209) or fast (4.58), and would be a poor bet to succeed outside the Seahawks' system. In 2016, Kearse should expect fewer targets with Tyler Lockett ascending. Mar 10 - 8:07 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Jermaine Kearse fully intends to hit the open market.

It's not a surprise. With Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett in the fold, the Seahawks have little incentive to overpay. Kearse, meanwhile, has every reason to test free agency in a year that's typically thin at the top of the wide receiver class.
Mar 3 - 5:37 PM

Coach Pete Carroll admits the Seahawks have some "work to do" with free agent Jermaine Kearse.

As in, the sides are far apart in talks. With the free agent market so thin at receiver, Kearse has no incentive to take a "hometown discount." On the other side of things, with Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett ready to serve as their top two wideouts, the Seahawks have little incentive to overpay. Kearse will probably be moving on.
Feb 25 - 3:12 PM

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports there is a "growing sentiment" the Seahawks will "try hard" to re-sign impending free agent Jermaine Kearse.

Keeping Kearse in Seattle may prove difficult. He has already said he will not offer the Seahawks a hometown discount, and the lack of talent in the free-agent class will certainly drive up his price. In a weak market, Kearse may be able to push $4 million annually. Kearse set career highs in catches (49), yards (685) and touchdowns (5) last season.
Feb 16 - 10:27 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports impending free agent Jermaine Kearse will not offer the Seahawks a hometown discount.

"I love my hometown, but I've put in too much hard work to give a discount," Kearse said via text message to Schefter. "My number one priority is to take care of my family's future, so I will consider all opportunities." Kearse posted career highs in catches (49), yards (685) and touchdowns (5) while starting all 16 games this season. He ended the season strong with an 11/110/2 line in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss. With a weak free agent class at receiver, guys like Kearse could get overpaid.

Jermaine Kearse caught 11-of-15 targets for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss to the Panthers.

Kearse had one 100-yard game and just five touchdowns all season coming into Sunday. He had a big game against the Panthers last playoffs, posting a 3-129-1 line in the Divisional round, but Kearse outdid himself in this one. With the Seahawks trailing 31-0 at halftime, the Seahawks were forced to throw the ball a ton after the break. Kearse got the Seahawks on the board in the third quarter with a leaping 13-yard score over CB Robert McClain. Later on, Kearse got the best of All-Pro CB Josh Norman for a three-yard score to make it 31-21 in the fourth quarter. The free agent-to-be had his best season to date, starting all 16 games and posting a 49-685-5 line in the regular season. He'll turn 26 next month and may have earned himself some money on Sunday.
Jan 17 - 4:43 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-4 targets for 18 yards in the Seahawks' Wild Card win over the Vikings.

With Doug Baldwin likely to draw Josh Norman in the Divisional Round, Kearse could be in for more targets than usual. He'll be a boom-or-bust WR3 in DFS.
Jan 10 - 5:01 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-3 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Kearse ends the regular season with 49 catches for 685 yards and five touchdowns. He'll be a volatile postseason WR3 in DFS.
Jan 3 - 8:15 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-5 targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 16 loss to the Rams.

Kearse's score, his fourth of the season, came deep into garbage time. Kearse won't be a recommended DFS punt against the Cardinals' elite defense in Week 17.

Jermaine Kearse (calf) is probable for Week 16.

Kearse was limited Wednesday, but practiced fully the last two days. He would only be a low-end streamer if Doug Baldwin (hamstring) doesn't play this week.
Fri, Dec 25, 2015 06:24:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse (calf) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Kearse will be ready to go as a WR5 against the Rams.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 05:50:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Kearse's status will be updated Thursday, but he should be fine. He's on the WR3 map for Week 16.
Wed, Dec 23, 2015 07:47:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 7-of-8 targets for 110 yards Week 15 against the Browns.

Kearse led the team in targets and yards, but he could not get into the scoring fun with Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin. Kearse's biggest play of the game came at the end of the first half. With the Browns playing prevent, Kearse found acres of space downfield and fought through a facemask penalty for 39 yards. The facemask gave the Seahawks an extra nine yards and an untimed down, and Steven Hauschka connected on a 27-yard field goal to extend the lead before the half. Kearse now has 18 targets the last two weeks and deserves WR3 consideration in a red-hot offense.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 07:46:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse secured 7-of-8 targets for 74 yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Ravens.

Tyler Lockett, Doug Baldwin, and even Kearse have all seen significant bumps in usage and production since Jimmy Graham was lost for the season three weeks ago. Kearse, of course, has the lowest talent level and least fantasy appeal of the group. He'll be a WR4/5 in Week 15 against the Browns.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 04:53:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse was held without a catch in Seattle's Week 13 win over the Vikings.

Kearse was targeted only once on a day where Russell Wilson again went wild. Kearse is capable of big plays/days, but they're impossible to predict, making him a no-go in 12-14 team leagues.
