Seahawks Deal Harvin to the Jets
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets have acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks.
Two people familiar with the trade told The Associated Press on Friday that Harvin, a star in last season's Super Bowl but injury-prone through his career, was headed to the Jets. The people spoke anonymously because the deal was not officially announced by either club.
The 26-year-old Harvin has played in only 43 career games since being a first-round pick (22nd overall) by Minnesota in 2009. He was traded to the Seahawks in 2013, appearing in just one regular-season game. But he had two rushes for 45 yards and ran back the second-half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown in Seattle's 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl.
The deal was first reported by Fox Sports.
