Browns Have “Some Interest” In Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns, who could use some receiver help, have “some interest” in a possible trade for Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse.

Although, Cabot adds that Kearse is one of a few receivers the Browns are currently considering right now.

Dianna Russini of ESPN first reported that the Seahawks were attempting to trade Kearse last night.

Kearse, 27, originally signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Washington back in 2012. He spent his rookie season on and off of the Seahawks’ practice squad before making the 53-man roster the following year.

He is entering the second year of a three-year, $13.5 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $2.2 million this year to go along with another $5 million in 2018.

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Kearse would free up $2.2 million in cap space, while creating $1,833,333 in dead money.

In 2016, Kearse recorded 41 receptions for 510 yards receiving (12.4 YPC) and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 111 receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
