Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse spent the first five years of his professional career with Seattle Seahawks before being traded to the New York Jets in 2017. It seems that Kearse had a great time in Seattle since he wouldn’t mind becoming a part of the Seahawks once again now that he is a free agent.

During a recent interview with Doug Baldwin and Cliff Avril on Sports Radio 950 KJR, Kearse said he would love to return to Seattle if there is an opportunity for that.

“Yeah. Look, I would love to play back in Seattle,” – said Kearse. “Obviously things have to work out in it’s own, and things have to be right. It would be an opportunity that would be a great opportunity.”

Kearse has deep ties with Seattle as he grew up in a nearby place and went to college at the University of Washington. Also, his wife is from the area as well. The 29-year-old however, noted that he didn’t speak with anyone from Seahawks organization about the reunion.

“I have not personally talked to John [Schneider, team’s general manager] or Pete [Carroll, team’s head coach],” – he added. “I know my agent has really close ties with Pete, so I’m pretty sure they’ve spoke here and there.”

During his time with Seattle Seahawks, Jermaine Kearse played 81 games with the team and caught 184 passes for 2,602 yards and 17 touchdowns. In 2018, he played 14 games with Jets and had 37 receptions for 371 yards and one touchdown.
