Percy Harvin has been traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the New York Jets, according to Jay Glazer. The compensation has not been disclosed, other than “conditional pick.” Harvin was just traded to Seattle as part of a deal that involved a first round pick before last season.
The only non-shocking thing about this deal is that Harvin has apparently worn out his welcome somewhere else. Everything else about this is a stunner. It makes little sense for a team like the Jets, sitting at 1-6, to trade away future picks for a player like Harvin in the middle of a season where the playoffs are already a pipe dream.
Seattle, meanwhile, is in contention again, and just traded a dangerous weapon, albeit a volatile one.
