The Lions have added themselves a new pass catcher that could help with contention.

The Detroit Lions made a potentially big move on Thursday morning when they signed wide receiver Jermaine Kearse. Get to know the new pass catcher now.

1

He becomes best option for #2 receiver

Jermaine Kearse should be able to slide in right behind Kenny Golladay as the second option for Lions' quarterback Matthew Stafford.

2

He's got top receiver talent

When he was with the New York Jets, he had to rise to the top receiver spot in 2017. He took that role and ran with it, catching 65 passes for over 800 yards and five touchdowns.

3

He almost went back to the Seahawks

Just over a week ago, it appears that the Lions weren't going to have any shot at Kearse. All the talk was that the receiver was going to go back to the team he started his NFL career with. Then something changed in the free agent talks and the sides cooled. That left the door open for Detroit.
