Percy Harvin has been traded to the New York Jets. I received the news on the Twitter feed on my phone while having coffee with my dad at Starbucks and spent a second wondering if it was a joke.
Percy Harvin, although spending much of last season sidelined by injuries, was probably the team's most exciting player, he will be remembered running back a kick-off for a touchdown in the Super Bowl, one of the most memorable moments in Seattle sports history. It put an exclamation point on a great victory. This year, while healthy, his numbers were less than exciting, but fans seemed to think a breakthrough was immanent.
The Seahawks will receive a conditional draft choice from the Jets for Harvin.
