Jets Add Harvin In Trade

The Jets traded a conditional draft pick with the Seahawks, for wide receiver Percy Harvin. Harvin is known for his explosive speed and playmaking ability. The Jets were in desperate need of help in their receiving core. Due to a lack of talent, and injuries at the position, the Jets front office felt like it needed to pull the trigger to get an immediate weapon. On the year, Harvin has just 22 receptions for 133 yards and no TD’s. Harvin is a six year veteran out of Florida. He spent 4 years with the Minnesota Vikings, and 2 years with the Seattle Seahawks. He only played in the Super Bowl last year, and in just 5 games for the Seahawks this year. Only in 2011 has Harvin played a complete season injury free.

In 2009 and in ‘11, Harvin caught 6 TD’s and has not surpassed that mark since. In fact, Percy Harvin has not scored a TD since 2012. Although when healthy, Harvin is an integral piece of any explosive offense. He can make carries out the backfield, run sweep plays, and stretch the defense downfield. They also in the process released receiver David Nelson, who has had a disappointing season prior to being released. Nelson had just 8 receptions for 65 yards on the year. Harvin should add some depth at the receiving core of Eric Decker and Jeremy Curley, which in turn will help out the run game that came on last game against the Patriots. It has been reported that Harvin refused to enter 3 games this season for the Seahawks due to being unhappy with his amount of touches. He should have no problem with looking for the football, as the Jets are looking for someone to spark their offense.
