Reports : Vikings WR Percy Harvin Traded To Seahawks, Good Fit?

As if the growing rivalry between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers didn’t need any more fuel, the Minnesota Vikings will sent disgruntled–yet talented wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Seahawks in a trade.

The 49ers responded by acquiring Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a sixth round pick.

As for the deal with Harvin, it is contingent on him passing a physical and signing a contract extension and it will cost the Vikings its 2013 first-round(25th overall), a seventh-round pick in 2013 and a mid-round pick in 2014.

Going forward, this deal is a huge win for the Seahawks, as the team adds another dimension with Harvin.

The offense is already potent featuring Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson, running back Marshawn Lynch and former Vikings teammate, wide receiver Sidney Rice.

Harvin will  inject some explosiveness into Seattle’s 27th ranked passing offense.

While San Francisco arguably won in the short-term with the sure handed Boldin, Seattle has the potential to be the bigger winners in the long-term if Harvin can stay healthy for Seattle he is more versatile.

  1. Pete Carroll loves him some Percy and will most definitely utilize him to maximize his skills. He’s an easy top 10 WR with this deal, our WR#7 right now. Russell Wilson is a huge upgrade (this trade helps him too no doubt he’s likely a top 10 fantasy QB, albeit the ceiling is not as high as a guy like stafford or romo mbecause of the style of offense the Seahawks run). SIdney Rice and Golden Tate are downgraded. Marshawn’s value remains unaffected (RB #5).

  2. It crazy that the Seahawks get a 1st, 7th, and 6th round pick to take Percy Harvin. (You may need to look over your article.) And I doubt this was a response to another move. ALSO, Percy is widely considered a better player than 32 year old Anquan Boldin. Starting to lose faith in this website……

    1. It is crazy that the Seahawk that it took a 1st, 6th and 7th round pick to get Harvin. You’re right it wasn’t a response to the 49ers move, it was to add an additional threat at wide receiver.

      And no Percy isn’t considered a better player than Boldin.
