The Seahawks had placed Kearse, as well as Alex Collins and Jeremy Lane, on the trade block earlier this week, but most pundits assumed Seattle would acquire a late-round draft pick.

Richardson's time with the Jets was filled with more lows than highs, despite his unlimited potential as a player.

Seahawks owner Paul Allen expressed his regards for Kearse via Twitter.

RENTON, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks on Friday traded WR Jermaine Kearse to the New York Jets in exchange for DL Sheldon Richardson, according to multiple media reports. Richardson was arrested in July 2015 for driving a 2014 Bentley Silver Spur at speeds up to 143 miles per hour on an interstate highway near his offseason home in Missouri.

The Jets also get Seattle's 2018 second-round draft pick, and the teams swapped seventh-round picks.

The Jets have a dire need of help at the receiver position, so this trade makes flawless sense. However, previous year he caught less than half the passes that came his way, finishing with 41 receptions for 511 yards and one touchdown. Seeming nearly forgotten is a catch that was no less important - a 35-yard touchdown on fourth-and-seven that put Seattle ahead for good against the 49ers in the 2014 NFC title game. The 2013 first-round pick is scheduled to be a free agent in March and was owed $8.1 million this year. However, it wouldn't surprise me if Kearse ultimately led NY in receiving when it's all said and done. For his career, the 6-3, 294 Richardson has 18 sacks and 142 tackles. He has been suspended twice by the league, and he recently angered Todd Bowles with his public criticism of former teammate Brandon Marshall.

Well, based on a projected $178 million salary cap for 2018, the Jets could have $83.617 million in cap space entering next offseason, if they carry over all of their current cap space.

The Jets have been trying to trade Richardson, a 2014 Pro Bowl selection, for a while and almost traded him at the draft this year, but this deal looks like it is going to get done. He'll be the team's best receiver by a wide margin.
