The Seattle Seahawks have bulked up even more by adding wide receiver depth by trading for Minnesota Vikings Percy Harvin. They already have former Vikings receiver Sidney Rice on their roster.
“The Seahawks and Vikings have agreed to a trade that send Harvin to Seattle for draft picks, pending Harvin passing a physical”
As Adam Schefter was discussing it on ESPN, the host told him at the end of the segment that their NFL Senior Writer John Clayton had confirmed the report. Adam Schefter though quickly got aboard with the news tweeting details of the trade:
“Any trade between MINN and SEA for Percy Harvin, which still is being finalized, is expected to include Seahawks’ 2013 first-round pick.”
That’s a big investment in Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks, giving up their first round pick. A player who is often injured and hampered by migraine issues. When he does play he can be effective though. In 8 games last season he caught 62 passes for 677 yards. That would’ve been a Wes Welker like 124 passes and 1,352 yards over a full season.
All of that with Christian Ponder throwing you the ball!
Think about it, if he can stay healthy he could put up serious numbers for the Seahawks. But he’s never started a full season for the Vikings. The 2011 campaign was the closest he had to a full season. He played in 16 games, started 14, caught 87 passes for 967 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Seattle sends this years first round pick and a 7th rounder as well as a mid-round pick next year for Harvin. Win-win for both teams
