Percy Harvin has barely been on the field this year for the Seattle Seahawks after they traded for the former Minnesota Vikings receiver and returner, but at Super Bowl XLVIII Media Day on Tuesday said he can be as explosive as ever against the Denver Broncos.
Harvin played sparingly in one regular season game for the Seahawks and made his long-awaited return vs. the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs but exited early with a concussion.
“Man, it was tough,” Harvin told Around The League during Tuesday’s Media Day. “It was very tough. Especially knowing that I had prepared for that game, I had a good week and my legs were starting to feel how I wanted them to feel during the game. I felt really good, I knew I was going to finish that game without a problem.”
It would be easy to write off Harvin after a season lost to injury, but the Seahawks won’t be doing that and are hopeful Harvin will provide a spark to the Seahawks passing game and manage to get through the game unscathed.
In a game that figures to be extremely close and potentially decided on a big play, it could be the return of a healthy Harvin that is the difference for the Seahawks as they look to win their first Lombardi Trophy.
