The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta expects Jermaine Kearse to remain an every-down receiver for the Seahawks.
Many are calling for more playing for Super Bowl standout Chris Matthews, but Condotta expects him to operate as the No. 3 receiver behind Doug Baldwin and Kearse. Kearse is as streaky as they come as a pure deep threat. His real contributions come in the run game as a blocker on the outside. Kearse played 821 snaps but was targeted just 64 times in the ultra-run-heavy offense. Jun 26 - 10:20 AM

Seahawks re-signed restricted free agent WR Jermaine Kearse to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

About time. Kearse was slapped with the second-round tender in March and was one of the last RFAs to sign his deal. He wasn't going anywhere at the cost of a second-round pick. Kearse will fill the deep-threat role again in 2015.
May 5 - 10:54 PM

Seahawks extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent WR Jermaine Kearse.

The second-round tender is a one-year deal worth $2.356 million. Nobody is desperate enough to give up a second-rounder for Kearse, so he's staying put. Russell Wilson only targeted Kearse 67 times last season. The Seahawks need to find a better starting complement to Doug Baldwin.
Mar 6 - 9:09 AM

Jermaine Kearse secured 3-of-6 targets for 45 yards in the Seahawks' Super Bowl XLIX loss to the Patriots.

Kearse missed a big-play opportunity in the third quarter when he dropped a perfect downfield bucket throw from Russell Wilson. Redemption nearly came on a diving, Tyreeian fourth-quarter catch that bounced off several parts of Kearse's body before he secured it for a 33-yard gain. Unfortunately, the Seahawks proceeded to call a pass plays later at the goal line, and Wilson was intercepted, sealing the loss. 25 years old, Kearse is a restricted free agent this offseason. He is one of the worst starting wide receivers in football and Seattle badly needs to upgrade.

Jermaine Kearse caught 1-of-6 targets for a 35-yard, game-winning touchdown in Seattle's overtime victory over the Packers in the NFC title game.

Kearse was having the nightmare to end all nightmares before beating Tramon Williams in the extra period for a truly-amazing catch. Even with Williams wrapping his hands around Kearse's chest and getting his hands on the ball, Kearse managed to haul in the pass that sent Seattle back to the Super Bowl. Before overtime, Kearse was the intended target on multiple Russell Wilson interceptions. He'll continue to serve as Seattle's best approximation of a deep threat in Super Bowl XLIX.

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 129 yards with a touchdown in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Panthers.

Consistently nicked and under-performing during the regular season, Kearse stepped up at a crucial time. He was the primary wideout opposite Doug Baldwin and got a little boost when Paul Richardson (knee) left in the third quarter. But even before Richardson departed, Kearse beat Bene Benwikere on a vertical route for a 63-yard score in the second quarter. DFS owners thinking about chasing points on this boom-or-bust vertical threat should note he only saw three targets Saturday and averaged a meager 4.4 targets per game during the regular season. The Seahawks will host either Green Bay or Dallas in next week's NFC Championship Game.
Jan 10 - 11:39 PM

Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) is listed as probable for the Divisional Round.

Kearse's return will give Russell Wilson a big-play threat on the outside. Paul Richardson will start opposite Kearse in three-wide sets.
Jan 9 - 7:19 PM

Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) is practicing in full this week.

Kearse remains on track to return for Saturday's Divisional Round. He'll start opposite Paul Richardson in three-wide sets, with Doug Baldwin playing the slot. Kearse isn't more than a boom-or-bust DFS option.
Jan 7 - 7:11 PM

Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) has resumed practicing, and will be active for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Panthers.

Kearse missed Week 17, but has now had two weeks to get right. Kearse is a big-play threat, but will be a boom-or-bust DFS option against the Panthers' improved secondary.
Jan 6 - 3:55 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said he expects Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) to be ready for the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

The Seahawks have two weeks before their next game. Kearse injured his hamstring in Week 16 and missed the finale against the Rams. He, Doug Baldwin, and Paul Richardson will make up Seattle's receiving trio.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 07:17:00 PM

Seahawks declared WR Jermaine Kearse, CB Tharold Simon, TE Cooper Helfet, C Max Unger, OG Keavon Milton, and DE Demarcus Dobbs inactive for Week 17 against the Rams.

Kearse has a hamstring injury, leaving Paul Richardson as the starter opposite Doug Baldwin.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 03:12:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Paul Richardson will start opposite Doug Baldwin. Kearse should be considered week to week and isn't a lock to be ready for Seattle's first playoff game.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 07:30:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Kearse is expected to miss at least one week with a Grade-1 hamstring strain and isn't a lock to be ready for Seattle's first playoff game. Paul Richardson will start opposite Doug Baldwin in his absence.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 07:31:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse has a "first degree" hamstring pull, and is expected to miss Week 17.

It sounds like Kearse could be questionable for Seattle's first playoff game, whether it's in the Wild Card or Divisional Round. Paul Richardson will move into two-wide sets during Kearse's absence.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 03:44:00 PM

Coach Pete Carroll is not optimistic on Jermaine Kearse's (hamstring) status for Week 17.

Kearse pulled his hamstring during Sunday night's win over the Cardinals. The Seahawks will have to use more Paul Richardson as they try to clinch a first-round bye against the Rams.
