The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly trying to part ways with veteran wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, who has been with the team since 2012. 

Per ESPN, Kearse has been a starter for the Seahawks since 2014 but is coming off a down season in which he caught 41 passes for 510 yards and one touchdown. He was briefly supplanted as Seattle's No. 2 receiver behind Doug Baldwin, but he reclaimed that role when Tyler Lockett suffered a season-ending leg injury.

"Kearse's role in Seattle's offense has been up in the air this summer. Lockett is coming back from his injury, and while he hasn't played in the preseason, coach Pete Carroll has said Lockett has a good chance to be ready by Week 1. Fourth-year pro Paul Richardson at times worked ahead of Kearse in Seattle's receiver rotation during training camp. The team drafted Amara Darboh in the third round and also has Kasen Williams vying to make the roster after a strong preseason," added ESPN. 

Kearse is set to make $2.2 million in base salary in 2017 as part of the three-year, $13.5 million deal he signed in March of 2016.
