JERMAINE KEARSE, WR:
Jermaine Kearse in, in many ways, an enigma. Owner of some of the greatest and most significant catches in Seahawks postseason history, it’s not umcommon to hear his name attached to swear words when attending a game. Drops have been a regular part of his resume as much as a flair for the dramatic.
And now he’s getting paid, accounting for a cap number of just over $2.3 million this year.
The Seahawks are deeper at WR than they’ve been in years. Kearse’s contributions on special teams are what will likely set him apart in the competition at receiver, but if a player such as (ironically his former UW teammate) Kasen Williams were to step up and outplay him this month, Kearse could be let go.
And this isn’t helping him…………
