Lions continue adding receivers, sign Jermaine Kearse

The Lions released wide receiver Jordan Smallwood in a corresponding roster move. While both are expected to be ready for training camp this summer, the Lions are in the midst of trying to install a new offense.

Former Lakes High School, University of Washington and Seattle Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse has signed a deal with the Detroit Lions. For the last two seasons as a member of the Jets, Kearse has caught 102 passes for six touchdowns.

Kearse, 29, previously played for the Seattle Seahawks under new Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Patricia, who was the Patriots' defensive coordinator at that time, said he has briefly talked with Kearse about the catch in the past and that it is part of the history shared between the two.

Overall, Kearse has 255 career receptions for 3,290 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Kearse, who turned 29 in February, is coming off the most disappointing of his seven National Football League seasons.

Last season, the Jets wouldn't fare much better with a rookie quarterback under center, posting a worse 4-12 record. He'd post a total of 37 catches for 371 yards and a single score in 2018.

His experience in Bevell's system was surely a large factor in his signing in Detroit, as the Lions were in desperate need of more talent on the depth chart and additional veteran leadership in the wide receiver meeting room.
