Seahawks Trade Percy Harvin to Jets

Seahawks Trade Percy Harvin to Jets

The Seattle Seahawks have traded multifaceted offensive weapon Percy Harvin to the New York Jets.

Seattle picked up the receiver in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings in 2013 for first-, third-, and seventh-round picks. He comes considerably cheaper for the Jets, who deal Seattle a conditional pick ranging anywhere from the second to the fourth round.

Harvin spent most of 2013 injured on the sidelines. He proved a major contributor in the Super Bowl, running for 45 yards on two carries, returning a kick for a touchdown, and catching a pass. Despite showing flashes of the ground-air threat that Seattle traded for, Harvin played little last season and has contributed little this season, accumulating 122 receiving yards through five games. 

The Jets, 1-6 after losing a nailbiter in New England Thursday night, have struggled in the passing game all season. Harvin either solves Geno Smith’s problems or exposes Geno Smith as the problem.
