For today’s paper I wrote about Jermaine Kearse. I covered him while he was at Washington. You hear the same things now that you did then: Kearse comes out of his breaks very well and runs smooth routes. His hands were inconsistent then. He seems to be better now. One thing Kearse did a lot, and well, at Washington was use a double move down the middle of the field. We’ll see if Russell Wilson ever has the time to set up something like that for Kearse.
With offensive weapons in mind, our John McGrath says the Seahawks would be happy to take TE Tony Gonzalez off Atlanta’s hands.
