Adam Schefter of ESPN first passed along word of the trade, adding the Jets also received a second-round pick and a seventh-round pick, while the Seahawks also landed a seventh-rounder.
Kearse, a five-year veteran, had 41 catches for 510 yards last season with the Seahawks, but just 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 in December. Instead, they packaged Kearse with a second-rounder to acquire a very talented defensive end in Richardson. "Got to roll with the punches". I want to get out there and start on defense.
"He should be embarrassed", Richardson said, per the New York Post.
According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Kearse had not heard anything about the potential trade on Friday following Seattle's preseason finale against Oakland. Bennett is one of the NFL's most disruptive defensive lineman even if his sack totals don't show it. Short term and long term, we're still committed to building this thing through the draft.
Seahawks owner Paul Allen expressed his regards for Kearse via Twitter. But a continually rising salary cap makes such moves easier to handle.

American lawmakers have called it a big problem for U.S. national security and sent a warning letter to President Donald Trump. On Thursday, the president issued a stern warning to the armed forces not to break ranks.
Richardson's immaturity has been a concern to some people in the organization.
The former first-round pick also had his issues off the field, including a failed drug test that resulted in him being suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season.
Where Richardson plays in a crowded front seven in Seattle is yet to be seen.
The next couple of days will be fretful ones for many players around the league and that group looks like it will include Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse.
Seattle has always liked Coleman and the deal was in place before the game last night.
