Jermaine Kearse

Another player with only modest production to his name, Jermaine Kearse is a flashy wide receiver from the Seattle Seahawks, so bringing him in would unite him with his former super bowl teammate, Golden Tate. Kearse was part of a Seahawks offense that never really lost its identity despite losing its best player.  Playing the part of field spreading deep threat, Jermaine Kearse ended with a very respectable, team leading 14 YPC (min 5 catches).

At 26 years old, the Detroit Lions would be getting a player with plenty of room to grow who is already familiar with working in an offense with defined roles.  Golden Tate could help with his transition into the new offense, and the Lions could augment the parts of Calvin’s game they’re losing that Kearse can’t fill with their tight ends or a targeted draft pick.
