Seattle Seahawks hint at placing Percy Harvin on season-ending IR

The Seattle Seahawks are skating on ice that is thinner than they thought it would be at this point in the year, given all the things they’ve accomplished. Despite boasting the league’s best defense and an offense that can blow opponents away, the Seahawks may end up being the No. 3 seed in the postseason and could still lose out on a first-round bye.

A lot of things need to happen on Sunday for Seattle to miss a first-round bye, chief among them being Seattle losing to the St. Louis Rams, but it’s a distinct possibility. Another possibility for the Seahawks is placing wide receiver Percy Harvin on IR, a move that would render him ineligible for the postseason and effectively end his 2013 campaign.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll spoke about the possibility of placing Harvin on IR and said nothing more than it could happen.

This doesn’t mean anything is imminent with Harvin heading to IR, but it’s something that is truly discouraging to Seattle fans still hoping for a postseason return for Harvin. He’s played one game for the Seahawks since being traded in the offseason from the Minnesota Vikings and he’s hardly left an impression on Seattle. Seahawks fans would love to swap Harvin for Cordarrelle Patterson — a guy they could have drafted had they kept their first-round pick — but Harvin’s present setback only ensures his chances at a healthy long terms future in Seattle.

    Wouldn’t Seattle drop to the 5th seed in the NFC if they lose the division?

    “Harbin’s current setback only insures his chances long term with thr Seahawks”

    No all it insures is that he’s not terribly interested in playing football or what happens to the Seahawks

    Seattle sports curse continues and, as usual it does not matter who we have on our teams or how loud our fans are, we just are not going to win a pro-sports championship here. the ’78 Sonics were the definition of ‘fluke’ for us.I am done concerning myself with it anymore. Not worth the tease and stress of watching us crap the bed when it counts. Feel kind of bad for players like Sherman, Lynch and Wilson who, if they have any sense will achieve their respectable goals with other teams but have to first put in their time with Seattle.

    Then again maybe the coach and GMs will learn their lesson about going after high priced free agents and washed up players…but I won’t count on it.
