The Seahawks recently had a slew of injuries at wide receiver, and that position is getting dangerously thin at this point.

That leaves a glaring hole that needs to be filled by somebody.
Enter Jermaine Kearse.
Apparently Jermaine has been performing remarkably well on the practice squad. He has been working his butt off this season, trying to get onto the field. If you saw him in the pre-season, you might have seen him line up in the slot, on the edge, or even as a running back. He has been doing whatever it takes get onto the field, including switching positions, and this week looks to be a perfect storm for him to see playing time.
Now, the Seahawks could bring in Terrell Owens, but I'm pretty sure that ship has sailed, indefinitely. He practiced with the Seahawks for three weeks before he was released. Owens was also released before any of the players on the practice squad were "known" commodities. Now, with half of the season finished, teams know what they have. I'm willing to say that taking a very productive rookie off of the practice squad is a much better option for the Hawks than taking the circus that is TO.
