Seahawks trade WR Jermaine Kearse for Sheldon Richardson

Should the Bears trade for Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse

Should the Bears trade for Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse

The veteran wide receiver was all set to be a contributor for the powerhouse Seattle Seahawks this season, but now he's reportedly headed to the Jets, perhaps the worst team in the NFL.

Seahawks owner Paul Allen expressed his regards for Kearse via Twitter.

DT Sheldon Richardson is heading to Seattle, while at least one draft pick and WR Jermaine Kearse is heading to NY. After years of playing on the defensive line, the Jets started the 26-year-old at linebacker in 2016.

And Seattle is looking at the possibility that this could be a one-year rental as Richardson will be an unrestricted free agent this season with some thinking he could command a salary beginning in 2018 that would make him among the highest-paid defensive linemen in the National Football League - and more highly-paid than any Seahawk other than Russell Wilson, which would undoubtedly be a little dicey.

It's also worth remembering the Jets are now scheduled to have nine draft picks next year, because they'll have two in Round 2 and two in Round 5.

In Richardson-Kearse trade, Jets are getting Seahawks' 2018 second-round pick and teams also swapping 7th-round picks, per source.

Mumbai building crash: SP holds MHADA, SBUT responsible
Just two days after heavy rains lashed Mumbai , a three-storeyed building collapsed in the Dongri area on Thursday. A total of 29 people have been rescued so far, and five of them are in a critical condition in hospital.

The Jets upgraded at wide receiver now with Kearse on the depth chart.

Richardson bolsters an already-tough Seahawks front seven.

His best output came in 2015 when he posted 49 receptions for 685 yards and five touchdowns. For his career, the 6-3, 294 Richardson has 18 sacks and 142 tackles. He signed a three-year 13.5 million dollar deal last march. Will Kearse have a breakout year in NY?

A one game suspension was served by Richarson past year after an arrest stemming from a traffic violation and resisting arrest in 2015.

Well, based on a projected $178 million salary cap for 2018, the Jets could have $83.617 million in cap space entering next offseason, if they carry over all of their current cap space.
