NFL: Seahawks trade Harvin to Jets

The Seattle Seahawks traded away wide receiver Percy Harvin because he was becoming too much of a destructive force in the locker room, according to multiple reports.

The Seattle Seahawks traded away wide receiver Percy Harvin because he was becoming too much of a destructive force in the locker room, according to multiple reports.
The New York Jets, less than 24 hours removed from their sixth straight loss, acquired Harvin in exchange for a conditional draft pick in hopes of boosting their struggling offense.
“Percy is a versatile, dynamic player who has been productive on offense and special teams,” Jets general manager John Idzik said in a statement Saturday officially announcing the deal. “We’re excited about adding him to the Jets.”
ESPN, citing two team sources, reported that Harvin had physical confrontations in the locker room with teammates, especially with other offensive players.
According to the Seattle Times, Harvin gave wide receiver Golden Tate (now with the Detroit Lions) a black eye prior to the Super Bowl and also cut the chin of receiver Doug Baldwin during a fight this preseason.
