Kearse Brings Big Catches to Jets, Leadership to Young WRs
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Jermaine Kearse has won a Super Bowl and made a few highlight-reel catches in the big game. Now with the rebuilding New York Jets, the playmaking wide receiver is looking to make his mark with his new team.
Kearse said Monday after his first practice with the Jets, "I've got a chip on my shoulder. I'm still hungry out here and I've got a lot of things that I want to prove."
Kearse was acquired by New York last Friday from Seattle for defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson, with draft picks included in the deal on both sides.
The 27-year-old Kearse immediately became the Jets' most experienced receiver on the roster, and a guy who knows what it takes to win a title.
