With an extra week to rest, Percy Harvin stands a chance to play for the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48. He returned to practice for the team on Wednesday and at the very least appears to be in their plans for the game.
This past off-season Harvin signed a six-year, $64 million deal with the Seahawks after a trade from the Minnesota Vikings. Added to bolster the team’s passing game and add a weapon to an offense that already featured Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson, Harvin has struggled with injuries once again, suiting up for only three games so far.
Harvin was asked today if he feels extra pressure to come back and contribute in the Super Bowl because of that big contract. He said, “no, not at all,” insisting that he’s “just a football player.” (Video courtesy of Troy Renck of the Denver Post):
