Jevon Kearse (born September 3, 1976), nicknamed "The Freak," is a former American college and professional football player who was a defensive end in the National Football League (NFL) for eleven seasons in the late 1990s and 2000s. Kearse played college football for the University of Florida, and thereafter, he played professionally for the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL.

Kearse played for the Eagles for four seasons between stints with the Titans. During his first five seasons with the Titans, he was a three-time Pro Bowl selection and AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1999. Both his unusual speed and 86 in (218.4 cm) wingspan greatly impressed coaches and earned him the nickname "The Freak."
