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.
