Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin wasn't satisfied with the way his season went despite the Seahawks' Super Bowl win, Harvin told Seattle television station Q13.

While obviously pleased to have won the championship, Harvin said it didn't feel as triumphant as it should've since he wasn't able to stay healthy during throughout the season and make plays.

After arriving via trade from the Minnesota Vikings and signing a long-term deal with the Seahawks, Harvin injured his hip last offseason and wasn't able to overcome the injury in the regular season, playing in just one game. He then suffered a concussion in Seattle's divisional round game against the New Orleans Saints.

Harvin did go on to make a big impact in the Seahawks' 43-8 win over the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, leading the team with 45 rushing yards and returning the opening kickoff of the second half 87 yards for a touchdown. That gave Seattle a 28-0 lead and essentially put the game out of reach.

But it couldn't fully erase a frustrating regular season for the receiver. More from Harvin, via NFL.com:

Harvin — as healthy as he's been in a long while — sounds determined to be a bigger part of the Seahawks' defense of the Lombardi Trophy.
"After the Super Bowl, it was good that I reached one of my dreams and, you know, I got to the pinnacle of football, but I just wasn't settled last year," Harvin said. "When I got home I took about two or three weeks off and I was right back to work."
