Percy Harvin Trade: Seattle Seahawks Acquire Harvin from Vikings for Draft Picks


The Percy Harvin drama in Minnesota has reached it’s conclusion. Per Jay Glazer, after demanding a trade out of Minnesota, the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings have agreed on a trade that sends Harvin to Seattle in exchange for draft picks.

 

With Harvin landing in Seattle, the Seahawks now have an offense that features Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Percy Harvin in addition to any other weapons they bring in. Landing Harvin also means a seismic shift for the Seahawks in terms of how seriously people take them in 2013. Without Harvin, the Seahawks made it within a game of the NFC Championship game.

One can only imagine what the Seahawks will do with Harvin at their disposal.

The Vikings needed to get rid of Harvin who had become a problem in the locker room and one that wasn’t getting any better. Harvin ironically had an infamous fight with head coach Leslie Frazier during the VIkings visit to Seattle in 2012, one that seemed to put a nail in the coffin of the relationship between the Vikings and Harvin.

The Seahawks will be giving Harvin a brand new deal once he passes his physical and the trade is made official on March 12th. The Seahawks are expected to send their 2013 first-round draft pick to Minnesota along with another late round pick.

Both sides may ultimately win in the end, but an early tally sees the Seahawks winning this trade in a landslide — and the biggest loser in the whole trade are the Seahawks opponents in the NFC West, a division that has suddenly become the best in all of football.

      Vikings made a killing on this deal. A 1st and 7th this year PLUS a mid-round pick in 2014. Harvin had better pay off big for the Seahawks or they could come out on the wrong end of this.

    I love the move for both sides. Harvin makes the Seahawks a very scary team and the Vikings get the tools they need to rebuild.
