He wants a paycheck but doesn't want to work for it. Hope Seattle didn't give him too much on the signing bonus or guaranteed portion of his contract. Seattle? Oh, ya who cares!

I've talked to a couple of Seahawks fans and I shared with them my belief that Seattle made a bad trade to give up what they did for Harvin. They both held to the belief that Harvin will really help Seattle and that Harvin is still young. If Seattle just sat at pick 23 they could have had a choice of some really good receivers including Patterson. I didn't discuss this to rub it in really. The GM and head coach of Seattle will have secure positions for quite a while because they took Russell Wilson in the 3rd round. It's sometimes better to be lucky than good.

Bad luck for them, good luck for us. This is a 6-12 week recovery I read so Harvin probably won't be much of a factor for them this season.

I see that Florida education is really paying off for Percy. Nice Tweet.

Just to review: Seattle signed Harvin to a six-year, $67 million contract that includes $14.5 million in guaranteed money for 2013 — a $12 million signing bonus and $2.5 million salary. In March, the Seahawks traded three picks — including their 2013 first-rounder — to Minnesota to get a player regarded as one of the most dynamic receivers in the NFL.
