FOUR BITS: Harvin, Nelson, Harrison, Haden

There is a video in this post that autostarts. Please scroll down and pause it if you do not want it to play until after you are done reading.

1 » The trade of former Florida Gators wide receiver Percy Harvin – from the Seattle Seahawks to the New York Jets – was completed over the weekend in a transaction which you can read about in full by clicking here. However, since the trade was first reported on Friday, there has been plenty of fallout from the situation, most of it centering on Harvin and his alleged anger-management issues.

According to CBSSports.com‘s Jason La Canfora, Harvin was a “pain in the ass,” who was not a fit for the organization “on a lot of levels,” and the situation did not “look like it was going to get better. Per The Seattle Times: “Harvin had gotten into an altercation with former Seahawks 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. … One final straw, a league source said, came in [last] Sunday’s 30-23 loss to Dallas when Harvin apparently balked at going back into the game in the fourth quarter.”

The Seahawks, which are also looking to clear cap space in preparation to re-sign quarterback Russell Wilson, believe they will be able to get along just fine without Harvin, just like they did last season when they won the league’s title. Multiple Seattle players were reportedly angry about management’s decision, namely star running back Marshawn Lynch. Former teammates, including QB Brett Favre, have come to Havin’s defense. Favre called Harvin, who he played with as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, “a good guy in the locker room” despite being “a little combative … in a good way” because “Percy’s all about doing whatever he can to help you win. He’s tough as nails and really that’s all he cares about. … I liked him as a player and a person.”

Reports: Seahawks trade WR Percy Harvin to Jets

For the second time in 19 months, former Florida Gators wide receiver Percy Harvin has been traded. According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to send Harvin across the country to the New York Jets for a conditional draft selection. According to ESPN.com‘s John Clayton, it selection will be anywhere from a second- to fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, dependent on production.

Harvin, who had a tumultuous four seasons as the leading receiver for the Minnesota Vikings, was traded to Seattle in March 2013 for three draft picks including a first-rounder that offseason. He was then re-signed by the Seahawks to a six-year, $64.25 million contract, which included a $12 million signing bonus and $14.5 million guaranteed.

He has $41.5 million remaining on his contract, which runs through 2018, though none of it will be guaranteed and New York can cut him at any time without penalty.

Healthy Percy Harvin runs wild Thursday for Seahawks; Gators NFL depth chart

Hoping to play a full regular season for the first time since 2011, a healthy and rejuvenated Percy Harvin opened eyes on Thursday as a game-breaking wide receiver, ball-carrier and returner for the Seattle Seahawks, which hosted the Green Bay Packers in the 2014 NFL Kickoff game.

Helping Seattle trounce Green Bay 36-16, the former Florida Gators standout racked up 160 all-purpose yards for the Seahawks, 100 of which were from scrimmage. Harvin led his team in receiving with seven catches for 59 yards (including a 33-yard reception, his longest since Oct. 7, 2012) and finished second in rushing with four carries for 41 yards, adding 60 return yards on three kickoffs just for good measure.

Harvin’s game-breaking ability should be a boon for Seattle all season. The 2009 NFL Rookie of the Year is arguably the most electric player in the league, a characteristic many forgot but were reminded of last season when he opened the second half of Super Bowl XLVIII by bringing a kickoff back for a touchdown.
