Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse has reached a three-year deal to re-sign with the Seahawks, according to a source. Financial terms of the deal weren't immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: Kearse hit career highs across the board last season with 49 catches for 685 yards and five TDs, but he still figures to be no better than the fourth pass-catching option in Seattle next season once TE Jimmy Graham returns from his 2015 knee injury.

Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Jermaine Kearse said he won't offer the team a hometown discount. 'I love my hometown, but I've put in too much hard work to give a discount,' Kearse said via text message. 'My number one priority is to take care of my family's future, so I will consider all opportunities.'
Huddle Up: With the breakout of Doug Baldwin and rookie Tyler Lockett coming off a strong first season--not to mention plenty of other Seahawks looking to get paid as well--Kearse may be forced to choose between a bigger contract elsewhere and sticking in Seattle at a reduced price. And from the above statements, sounds like if the money is right he'll follow it out of town.

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse is likely to be an every-down receiver for the team in 2015. He is a versatile receiver that excels at blocking.
Huddle Up: After starting a combined seven games over his first two seasons in Seattle, Kearse doubled that total with 14 a year ago and finished second on the team with a career-high 38 catches for 537 yards and a TD. He should see his numbers improve across the board, but it's going to be tough for him to reach stanard-league fantasy relevance on a run-first team which also has added new competition for targets in free-agent TE Jimmy Graham and third-round WR Tyler Lockett.

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse has signed his restricted free-agent tender. The Seahawks had put a second-round tender on the wideout.
Huddle Up: Kearse finished second on the team in targets (69), receptions (38) and receiving yards (537) last season, but that obviously didn't amount to much fantasy production given the Seahawks' run-heavy offense and the spread-the-targets-around approach in the passing game. It figures to be even more jumbled this season with TE Jimmy Graham and third-round WR Tyler Lockett joining the mix along with the anticipated emergence of second-year wideouts Paul Richardson and Chris Matthews, last season's out-of-nowhere Super Bowl hero.
