Minnesota Vikings Percy Harvin Being Traded to the Seattle Seahawks
According to reports, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin is being traded to the Seattle Seahawks for undisclosed draft picks.
ESPN's Adam Schefter said that the trade is contingent on Harvin getting a new contract.
The NFL's Ian Rapoport also tweeted about the impending deal.
Last month during the NFL combine in Indianapolis, Vikings GM Rick Speilman denied that the team was looking to trade Harvin.
"Percy Harvin is under contract and we expect him, just like all of our players under contract, to be here," Spielman told Sports Illustrated. "Again, there is no intent to trade Percy Harvin. He is a very good football player."
The Minneapolis Star Tribune said that Harvin was unhappy with how the team used him in the offense.
Harvin’s relationship with the Vikings has been much-discussed, including rumors that he isn’t pleased with the coaches’ plans for him on offense and that he does not get along with the medical staff. Quite simply, it seemed as though Harvin wasn’t happy here, and that was made obvious when he didn’t hang around the team during the late-season push toward the playoffs while he rehabbed his ankle.
