Report: Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse returns on three-year deal
Friday March 11th, 2016

The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed wide receiver Jermaine Kearse to a three-year, $13.5 million contract, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Kearse, 26, has played all four years of his NFL career in Seattle after joining the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2012. 

Last season was a career-best for Kearse, who started in all 16 games for the first time and caught 49 passes for 685 yards and five touchdowns, all career-highs.

His performance earned him the biggest payday of his career after being paid $2.35 million last season.

Kearse will join Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett as returning Seahawks receivers.
