The Seattle Seahawks appeared to have found a dynamic receiving threat, who can not only make plays in the passing game that will help the development of second-year quarterback Russell Wilson, but also give the Hawks’ a solid returner who will upgrade a special teams unit that didn’t quite live up to expectations in 2012.
No, I’m not talking about Percy Harvin, who was acquired this offseason to do all of the aforementioned, but a is currently sidelined with a tear in his hip-labrum.
Instead, the Seahawks have been getting those contributions from wide receiver Jermaine Kearse. The second-year pro spent time on the practice squad early last season before being activated to the 53-man roster and appearing in seven games for Seattle. He made one start and caught three passes for 31 yards in mainly special teams action a season ago.
Kearse made the world know his name last night after he returned a kickoff 107 yards for a touchdown and also caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson during a 40-10 win over the Denver Broncos.
