RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Jermaine Kearse sat quietly at the podium for 15 minutes while to his left sat Kobe Bryant and Richard Sherman, and on his right, was Grammy winning hip-hop artist Macklemore all answering questions.

Not once was Kearse asked a question during his appearance at the recent charity event, even if the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver was the only one to have scored a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

Once an undrafted free agent and seeming longshot to make the Seahawks roster, Kearse might now fall into the category of being a lock when the final 53-man roster is submitted at the end of the preseason. It’s a rise from being overlooked coming out of college to becoming established in the NFL that has become a familiar story for the Seahawks.
