Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks: What it Means For Both Teams

Chicago Bears fans, Green Bay Packers fans and Detroit Lions fans are celebrating everywhere because there’s no more Percy Harvin in Minnesota. The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly dealt the Pro Bowl wide receiver to the Seattle Seahawks for undisclosed draft picks. After yesterday’s rumors of Harvin demanding a trade, it seems that the Vikings wasted no time in getting rid of this constant media disruption.

What it means for Minnesota: At this point, it is hard to tell. What we do know is that the Vikings just took a giant step backwards in their quest for a second straight playoff berth in 2014. Right now, their offense consists even more of handing the ball of to All Pro running back Adrian Peterson, as if that wasn’t obvious. Not only do they have a question mark at the quarterback position in many fans’ eyes, but now they have a gaping hole at the wide receiver position as well.

What it means for Seattle: Russell Wilson is having one of the best days of his professional career and the NFL is not even in season. He gets to play with one of the best defenses in the league and one of the most electrifying running backs in the league in Marshawn Lynch. Today he found out he’ll be playing with one of the most exciting players in the NFL in Harvin.

This move is undoubtedly one of the biggest moves in Seahawks’ history. Remember when the Seahawks scored 50 or more points in back to back games last year? Well, Harvin gives them a chance to do that again and again and again.
