Recommended Posts

Oh, this little tidbit too (ESPN stuff on Harvin):

Update: Harvin did not practice Thursday due to a thigh injury, the Seahawks' official site reports. (Oct 16)


Back in Week 1, Percy Harvin looked exactly like the play-making force the Seattle Seahawks hoped he would be before he missed nearly all of last season. Working as a receiver and rusher, he totaled 100 yards on 11 touches. Since then, though, he's done next to nothing, combining for 125 yards and 1 TD on 22 touches in four games.

Report: Jets trade for Percy Harvin

Posted by Josh Alper on October 17, 2014, 5:38 PM EDT

The Jets and Seahawks have reportedly pulled off a stunning trade.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that the Seahawks have traded wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Jets for a conditional draft pick. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media followed up by reporting it is a conditional mid-round pick.

The trade comes less than two years after the Seahawks sent a first-round pick and two other draft choices to the Vikings for Harvin’s services. They then signed Harvin to a six-year, $67 million deal. We’ll see what details come out in the coming hours and days, but the team obviously didn’t feel like the player they saw for five games this season and a handful last season was someone they wanted for the long term.

As for the Jets, they get an offensive weapon to add to a unit that’s totally devoid of them. How much he’ll help coming aboard midseason remains to be seen, but the 1-6 Jets are looking to 2015 anyway.

Conditional mid rounder? That's nothing for a player of Harvin's calibre. Guy must have really pissed off the coaches there.


Not sure how to feel about this. He is a phenomenal talent but we haven't got the coaches that can utilize him properly. This isn't a typical wide receiver.

Percy Harvin

Jay Glazer is reporting that the NY Jets have agreed to a trade with the Seattle Seahawks that brings Percy Harvin to New York, in exchange for a conditional draft pick.

Harvin, who is 26, is an explosive wide receiver. Seattle traded for him when John Idzik was part of the organization. The Jets currently stand at 1 and 6 but this will allow them an opportunity to truly evaluate Geno Smith with some weapons around him. Eric Decker, Percy Harvin, Jeremy Kerley and Jace Amaro are all options in the passing game.

As more details become known we will share them. Please check our forums to read more about .

He's set to average more than $10M/year the next four seasons, though. Be interesting to see how that plays out next year.

Worst case scenario: Harvin is a malingering a-hole that Carroll wanted to make an example out of to snap his team out of their Super Bowl malaise.

Best case scenario: Harvin was tying up a lot of money, Richardson is healthy and ready to take his job on the cheap, and Schneider wanted to get something for Harvin while he still could.

Probably something dead in the middle.
