Percy Harvin Wants to be a Jet, Who Will Throw Him the Ball?


The New York Jets made a trade with the Seattle Seahawks to bring in Percy Harvin in the middle of the season. His contract for next season is not guaranteed, so Percy has to be on his best behavior and he has to produce on the field in order to get paid next season. Will he be part of the roster next season?

Harvin has looked comfortable with the Jets. He is coming off of a 6-catch game in which he had 124 yards. He  has been working his way into the offense and is getting more opportunities to make plays. He is getting more comfortable with his teammates.

It will be interesting to see how the Jets handle Harvin in the offseason. The Jets likely will have a new head coach calling the plays and he will have to figure out if Harvin is worth the dough. Harvin was brought onto the roster to be an offensive weapon for the team to add with Eric Decker.

Instead of asking if Harvin is going to be playing in a Jets uniform next season, we should ask who will be throwing the ball out to him. Will it be Geno Smith? Will it be another vet? Will it be Marcus Mariota?

I know that the Jets have a number of different areas that they need to improve in the offseason, but the possibility of adding a talent like Mariota onto the team has to be intriguing. The team has been stacking up weapons on the offensive side, but they have been missing that quarterback to run the offense. They also have been missing a head coach to develop the quarterback.

Will the new head coach want to develop Geno or will he want to bring in the Heisman Trophy winner? I think that he will want his own quarterback to develop.
