Jermaine Kearse once made one of the most improbable clutch catches in the history of the Super Bowl. Darrell Bevell was calling the plays for him. Matt Patricia was calling the ones to stop him.
Now, the coaches are taking a look at the possibility of working together with him, Nate Atkins of Mlive reports.
The Lions worked out the former Seahawks receiver Wednesday, but he left Allen Park without a deal, NFL Network reported.
Kearse, 29, has been a productive receiver for several years now, as the 6-foot-1-inch, 209-pounder has topped 300 yards in six straight seasons. The first four came in Seattle, where Bevell called the plays. The Lions hired Bevell to be their offensive coordinator this year.
Patricia and Bevell gave Kearse a look after two days of getting to judge their own receivers in organized training activities practices.
