Percy Harvin trade: Jay Glazer reports deal to Seahawks

The NFC West had itself a bit of a shake-up on Monday as reports indicate Percy Harvin has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks. We take a look at the implications

Well, this Monday just got a whole lot more interesting. Shortly after Adam Schefter reported the Seattle Seahawks were in the lead for a potential deal for disgruntled Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin, Jay Glazer swooped in to report a deal was done to trade Harvin to the Seahawks for picks. The deal is pending a physical, and would be officially announced no earlier than tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. PT when the new league year starts.

This certainly makes things all the more interesting in the already competitive NFC West. Harvin is a speedster who adds a serious weapon to the Seahawks potent offense. It remains to be seen how his contract situation will be settled, but either way, the Seahawks become a much more dangerous team.

Harvin has dealt with injuries, but there is no doubting what he can do for the Seahawks offense. Russell Wilson has to be pleased to see this move. Sidney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin were solid enough receivers, but Harvin is immediately the best receiver of this group.

How do the 49ers counter this sizable move?
