SEATTLE - Jermaine Kearse has decided it's time for a change of scenery, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter tweeted that not only does Kearse plan to find a new team, he's looking forward to playing somewhere else.

Kearse has lived much of his life in Washington, playing his high school ball for Lakes and in college for the University of Washington

The Seahawks signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012, and he's caught 112 passes for 1,599 and 10 touchdowns in four seasons.

In January, Kearse told Schefter that he wouldn't stay in Seattle for a hometown discount.

“I love my hometown, but I’ve put in too much hard work to give a discount," he said at the time. "My number one priority is to take care of my family’s future, so I will consider all opportunities.”
