ESPN New York believes the Jets could move on from Jermaine Kearse.
Kearse set career highs last season but isn't a lock to return for the final year of his deal. The Jets signed Terrelle Pryor and are getting slot WR Quincy Enunwa back, making him expendable. Releasing Kearse would create $5 million in cap savings. Mar 24 - 3:21 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 5-of-7 targets for 59 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

Kearse turned in a productive season after joining the Jets just nine days prior to their opening game of the season via trade. He set career highs in targets (102), receptions (65) and receiving yardage (810) while matching a career mark with five receiving touchdowns. Turning 28-years old in February, Kearse still has more year left on his current deal worth $5M, but none of that salary is guaranteed at this point while also not counting as any dead cap. Kearse will be directly impacted based on if the Jets retain Quincy Enunwa through restricted free agency or not, while also contending with the growth of ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen on the depth chart. It’s likely that 2017 will be the best season of Kearse’s career and he will enter the offseason as player that needs the depth chart to shake out in his favor for the 2018 season.

Jermaine Kearse (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Kearse is looking doubtful for Sunday's finale against the Patriots. His loss would leave the Jets extraordinary thin at receiver. Even if Kearse sits, he will finish 2017 with a new career high in yardage (751).

Jermaine Kearse (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

It's a new injury for Kearse and could put and end to his season a week early. He's been a solid get for the Jets in the Sheldon Richardson trade back in September, with Kearse putting together a serviceable 60-751-5 line.
Wed, Dec 27, 2017 03:37:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 5-of-8 targets for 42 yards in Week 16 against the Chargers.

Kearse had more targets than Robby Anderson, but failed to make an impact. He's been trending down with Bryce Petty starting the last two weeks. Kearse should continue to be avoided for a Week 17 matchup with the Patriots.
Sun, Dec 24, 2017 04:47:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 28 yards in the Jets' Week 15 loss to the Saints.

As should have been expected, Kearse took a big step back with Bryce Petty starting. He now has 32 yards total in two games since his back-to-back 100-yard performances following the bye. With the Chargers up next, Kearse can be sent to the wire.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 05:54:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse secured just one catch for four yards on six targets Sunday in Jets’ Week 14 loss to the Broncos.

Coming off the game of his life against the Chiefs in Week 13 (career-high 157 yards), Kearse was essentially non-existent in Sunday’s defeat. Maybe that was to be expected against one of the league’s top secondaries, though it had to be a gut punch for fantasy owners who were caught point-chasing after his big game last week. With Josh McCown hurt, Kearse could be in for another rough game next week at New Orleans.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 08:33:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse corralled nine-of-10 targets for 157 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 13 win over the Chiefs.

Kearse was everywhere on Sunday, ripping off 79 yards in the first half before adding another 78 after halftime. He beat Steven Nelson on a wheel route for a 44-yard pickup in the first quarter and bettered that with a season-long 51-yard gain on a play where he broke multiple tackles in the fourth quarter. Kearse made another spectacular play in the fourth, coming up with an insane one-handed grab for a third-down conversion. The ex-Seahawk has gone ballistic over his last two games, nabbing 16-of-21 targets for 262 yards during that span. He’ll be in a tougher spot next week against a stingy Broncos secondary.

Jermaine Kearse (shoulder) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Kearse is just having his practice reps monitored. Coming off a season-high 105 yards in last week's loss to Carolina, Kearse will be in play as a WR3/4 Sunday against Kansas City.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 01:56:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse nabbed seven-of-11 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 12 loss to the Panthers.

Kearse endured a quiet first half but came to life with five catches for 76 yards after the break including a three-yard touchdown with 5:32 remaining in the fourth quarter. He closed out the third quarter with a 42-yard catch-and-run and set up a Jets’ first-and-goal by drawing a pass interference flag later on the same drive. The 105 yards marked a season-high for Kearse, who had combined for just 116 receiving yards over his previous four games. He gets the Chiefs at home in Week 13.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 05:45:00 PM

Jets WR Jermaine Kearse caught 4-of-8 targets for 35 yards in the team's Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

He also drew an end-zone target, but couldn't convert. Kearse has settled in as the third option in Gang Green's passing game behind Robby Anderson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. In 12- and 14-team season-long leagues, Kearse is not worth holding onto through the Jets' Week 11 bye.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 05:09:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-6 targets for 38 yards in the Jets' Week 9 win over the Bills.

Now firmly behind Robby Anderson on the depth chart, Kearse has just five catches over his past three games. He has a plus Week 10 matchup in the Bucs, but is quickly fading from WR4 relevance. The Jets' offense isn't big enough for the both of Anderson and Kearse, and Anderson is the more dynamic player.
Fri, Nov 3, 2017 12:03:00 AM

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-5 targets for 14 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss to the Falcons.

Robby Anderson has pretty clearly stepped forward as the Jets' top wideout, putting Kearse in a weekly competition for targets with the rest of Gang Green's complementary pass catchers, including their running backs and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Kearse won't be an appealing WR4/flex option when the Jets host the Bills next.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 05:30:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse secured one-of-four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Kearse came down with a 29-yard touchdown on New York’s opening drive but wasn’t heard from again after that. He’s now scored in two of his last three games and four times total for the season, which leads the team. Kearse will look to visit the end zone again versus the Falcons in Week 8.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 06:10:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse absorbed all four of his targets for 79 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

His 79 yards were a season-high. Over half of those came on a 44-yard completion from Josh McCown with 6:32 remaining in the fourth quarter. Kearse has had a handful of productive weeks but hasn’t been consistent enough to warrant much more than a bench spot in fantasy leagues. He gets a road matchup against Miami in Week 7.
