NFL Free Agency: 10 players the Houston Texans should target
By Randy Gurzi
3. Jermaine Kearse, WR Seattle Seahawks
The near-Super Bowl hero from the game played just a year ago, Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse is set to be a free agent and could be a great number two wide out.
Kearse is the player who set the Seahawks up to score as they looked for their second straight NFL Championship. In the fourth quarter, trailing 28-24 he hauled in a 33-yard pass from quarterback Russell Wilson, despite it being tipped originally by a defender and then again by Kearse.
He caught the ball while lying on his back, and set the ‘Hawks up inside the five. Then Seattle shied away from their playmaking receivers and forced the ball to receiver Ricardo Lockette, and they wound up turning it over in a game they lost.
That is the story of Kearse’s career in Seattle as the team refuses to just throw him the ball enough despite his continued play making. In Houston signing a guy like Kearse could provide a sensational one-two punch with him and DeAndre Hopkins.
One thing that’s for sure, the Texans will throw it to him more often.
Next: No. 2
