Seahawks trade Jermaine Kearse to Jets for Sheldon Richardson, draft considerations

Seahawks trade Jermaine Kearse to Jets for Sheldon Richardson, draft considerations

Jets coach Todd Bowles talks about why he played his starters in the fourth preseason game, and Josh McCown's injury scare on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017 at MetLife Stadium. The two teams will also swap 7th-round picks. He will help out whoever the Jets decide to put at quarterback for awhile.

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.

There's a good chance that the Seahawks were going to be the best defense in the National Football League in 2017 prior to Friday.

Landing Richardson solidifies the interior of Seattle's defensive line and quells some of the concerns raised by the uncertainty surrounding rookie second-round draft pick Malik McDowell, who was injured in a July ATV accident. Will the Jets draft a stud with the 2nd Round pick Seattle gave them? In 2014, his best season so far, Richardson had 67 tackles and eight sacks. But he fell out of favor with the franchise for a couple of reasons.

Richardson's fate in NY was likely sealed after the Jets drafted Leonard Williams sixth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Kearse signed a three-year, $13.5 million contract with Seattle before the 2016 season that pays him $2.2 million base salary this year.

This season, the young defensive end only racked up 62 tackles to go along with one forced fumble, and 1.5 sacks. Given that he's also entering the final year of his rookie contract, per Spotrac.com, he'll be playing for a lucrative contract next offseason as well. They've chosen to build the defensive front around Williams and Wilkerson, even though Richardson still might possess the most upside as a pass rusher. But the Jets have very few such players.

The Seattle Seahawks have made a big splash for their top-notch defense just before the start of the regular season.
