Seahawks Gauging Trade Interest In WR Jermaine Kearse, CB Jeremy Lane & RB Alex Collins

Update:

Ian Rapoport reports that the Seahawks are actively gauging the level of interest in trading for a few players including CB Jeremy Lane, RB Alex Collins and WR Jermaine Kearse.

Lane, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $23 million contract that includes $11 million guaranteed and set to make base salaries of $4 million and $6 million over the next two years.

In 2016, Lane appeared in all 16 games and recorded 49 tackles, no interceptions, and three pass defenses.

Collins, 23, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.566 million contract that included a $184,384 signing bonus and set to make base salaries of $540,000 and $630,000 over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2016, Collins appeared in 11 games for the Seahawks and rushed for 125 yards on 31 carries (4 YPC) to go along with 11 receptions for 84 yards receiving and one total touchdown.

Dianna Russini reports that the Seahawks are attempting to trade WR Jermaine Kearse.

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 just $366,666 in cap space, while creating $3,666,667 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.
