Former Lakes High School, University of Washington and Seattle Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse has signed a deal with the Detroit Lions.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the deal is worth $1.35 million and could be worth as much as $2.3 million if incentives are met.

Kearse, who signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2012, played five seasons with the team, hauling in 153 passes for 11 touchdowns. Kearse was a member of the back-to-back NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks in 2013 and 2014, winning a Super Bowl with the team in 2013.

Kearse will be remembered for catching the game-winning TD pass from Russell Wilson in the 2014 NFC Championship game in overtime against the Green Bay Packers.

In September of 2017, Kearse was traded to the New York Jets in a deal involving Sheldon Richardson. For the last two seasons as a member of the Jets, Kearse has caught 102 passes for six touchdowns.
