Through 5 games with Seattle this season, Harvin was a Seahawks’ personality in receptions with 22, though Seattle still felt like he wasn’t concerned adequate in a offense. Before creation a trade on Friday, Seahawks manager Pete Carroll indeed talked about a need to get Harvin some-more concerned in a offense, privately on low balls.
“He’s too quick not to use deep,” Carroll said.
Despite heading a group in receptions, Harvin was usually third on a Seahawks in receiving yards (133), behind both Doug Baldwin (187) and Jermaine Kearse (168).
Harvin’s time in Seattle will finish with usually 23 sum receptions. The receiver missed 15 of 16 games in 2013 and usually held one pass final season. In his six-year career, Harvin has missed a sum of 25 games, including 7 to finish his 2012 debate with a Vikings.
On a New York side of things, Geno Smith unexpected has a flattering installed offense, and Harvin will expected suffer a fact that a Jets like to chuck a round around a lot some-more than a Seahawks.
Harvin will join a Jets offense that also includes far-reaching receivers Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley, along with using backs Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson.
Harvin’s initial diversion with a Jets will expected come on Oct. 26 when New York hosts Buffalo. However, Harvin won’t strictly be a Jet until he passes his physical. Before a trade happened on Friday, Harvin (thigh) had been listed as questionable on a Seahawks Week 7 damage report.
Percy Harvin will now have 3 bye weeks on a season. Week 4 (SEA) this week (Jets already played) and Jets bye (Week 11)
