Report: Percy Harvin traded to Seattle

Monday March 11th, 2013

According to multiple reports, the Minnesota Vikings have traded 24-year-old wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks.

The trade is contingent on Harvin and the Seahawks agreeing upon a new contract within the next 48 hours.

Despite Vikings GM Rick Spielman denying that the Vikings are going to trade Harvin at the scouting combine last month, Harvin will be reunited with Seattle's offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who drafted Harvin in 2009 while working in Minnesota.

Harvin had reportedly asked for a trade out of Minnesota because he wasn't a big enough part of the offense and didn't get along with the medical staff. Harvin is entering the final year of his rookie contract and had his season ended on November 4 due to a sprained ankle.
