Percy Harvin was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the New York Jets on Friday. The trade was a surprise to just about everyone, but a picture is starting to come into focus about Harvin’s time in Seattle. Via the Seattle Times:
"One source confirmed a report that Harvin had gotten into an altercation with former Seahawk Golden Tate before the Super Bowl that resulted in Tate getting a black eye."
"A source also said Harvin had an altercation with Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin in the week leading up to the final exhibition game this August at Oakland that resulted in Baldwin getting a cut on his chin and each player being excused from practices that week. Harvin, who did not practice for two days before that game, did not make the trip to Oakland for what the team said at the time was “a personal matter.”"
A source also told the Seattle Times that Havrin was “too moody” and a “time bomb.” So Harvin plays well – when healthy – but does not play well with others. Harvin appeared in 5 games for Seattle this season, blowing the one game he played last regular season out of the water. Though he did return the second-half kickoff for a touchdown in a Super Bowl blowout, so it’s not like the Seahawks didn’t get anything out of his time there.
