THE WEST GETS WILDIER

Only a short time back, the NFC West was the laughing stock of the NFL. But times are changing and that division has become one of the fiercest and most exciting in pro football.

A day before free agency opens, Seattle and San Francisco just made it more electric.

<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]-->

As reported by Fox Sports insider, Jay Glazer, the Seahawks traded with the Minnesota Vikings to acquire WR Percy Harvin. The young playmaker made it clear he wanted out of town and got his wish. In exchange, Seattle will surrender this year’s first round pick (25th overall) and a seventh-round selection, as well as mid-rounder in 2014.

Shortly after that announcement, NFL.com’s Albert Breer reported that the 49ers had made a deal with the Ravens for WR Anquan Boldin. After Baltimore could not get Boldin to agree to lower his contract by $2 million per season, the playoff hero was shipped to the Bay Area for a sixth-round selection in April’s draft.
