Seahawks to Send WR Percy Harvin to the Jets

Percy Harvin

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to trade wide receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Seattle will receive a conditional draft pick in 2015, which will range from a second- to fourth-round pick, a source told ESPN’s John Clayton.

Fox Sports first reported the trade, which is contingent on Harvin passing a physical.

The 26-year-old Harvin has played in only 43 career games since being a first-round pick (22nd overall) by Minnesota in 2009. He was traded to the Seahawks in 2013, appearing in just one regular-season game because of hip surgery. But he had two rushes for 45 yards and ran back the second-half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown in Seattle’s 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl.

Seattle acquired Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings on March 11, 2013, in exchange for first- and seventh-round picks in 2013, and a third-round pick in 2014. The Seahawks then signed him to a six-year, $67 million contract, with $25.5 million guaranteed.

Harvin has battled a thigh injury and was listed as questionable for the Seahawks’ game at St. Louis this weekend. The Seahawks have tried to find a variety of ways to use him in their offense as a runner, receiver and on special teams, but injury woes slowed their plans.
