    $30M guaranteed too. That's the figure that means more.

    This news was not good just saw it as well. I expected about $30 million guaranteed but the $65 million is about $10 more than I think anyone wanted out there

    Now Percy was not a free agent and it should count for something that we gave up picks......but probably doesn't in his mind

    Giving up picks doesn't and shouldn't mean anything to Harvin and his agent. The draft pick compensation mattered only to the Vikings.

  • Scary part is 10-12 million is like 4 million or so less a year than Harvin wants.

    Everything I've read said that part of the trade was contingent upon getting Harvin a new contract, meaning if it's out there as a done deal, then he has that contract, or the framework of it.

    Well I disagree based on the fact that he was under contract. He could have played under that contract or sat out either way we will pay more for that year than he was going to get paid............

    Wallace was free to go anywhere no obligations

  • I'm liking this trade a little more today than I did yesterday - one of the things I like is Harvin's versatility can save you a roster spot on special teams and RB that you can use elsewhere. You can keep one less RB and don't need a kickoff returner specialist like we had for Leon, and use those spots for an extra D-lineman or 3rd string QB to develop.

    Since he's a seahawk officially. Anyone wanna guess what jersey number he's gonna be wearing for the Hawks? Obviously it's not gonna be #12. I can see him wearing #16,#82,#11 (i know chop chop has this number) and #10(butlers number as of right now)

  • nevermind LOL i just heard Percy will be wearing #11 per twitter.. but Sherm doesn't wear number 12 lol wtf

    Per Allen's feed, Harvin will wear No. 11 as a Seahawk (Richard Sherman is No. 12).

    I love Sherman but he is NOT 12 :laugh: I'm guessing either Allen's getting senile or maybe you are following a fake account?

    EDIT: I see you added a link to an article and the article is putting in the sherman information. Excellent sports blogging there

  • I have this sinking feeling about our defense, the missed opportunities at 25, the cost for the contract and what players that contract is going to cost us. I like Harvin, but his attitude and injury troubles started in college and I haven't seen any sign of them improving yet.

    Probably a good idea to sit back and have a drink, then. I bet next year, after you see him in action, you're going to forget all about it.

    I think the Seahawks have proven over the few couple years that they can find players to fit their scheme on Defense and excel. On offense, they have shown that they need to pay to get who they need (with Wilson, Tate, and Okung being the exceptions).

    Even if some of our Defensive stars go, I feel that they can find replacements in the draft over the next couple years. On offense, I would not be as optimistic.

  • Geez, is this thing ever going to start, or did the 49ers hijack Harvin's ride and spirit him away to the city on the bay?

    Maybe they met with him and stole his watch, then called to cancel his limo...

    What missed opportunity? PC was looking for a Harvin-type at 25. Instead of taking a huge risk on a rookie, he went out and got the real thing. This deal doesn't mean Defense is on the backburner now.

    Incredible. His work ethic is unreal.

    Haha Yeah, the parallels are quite similar


    Even the way they speak. The tireless work ethic. The relentless exploring of ALL AVENUES and ALL available players. Exploring new markets for talent. The sense of humor they both possess. They are carbon copies of one another.

    Even the way they both climbed to the top at such a young age. Anthopoulos as the Sunday Mailroom Intern with the hometown Expos, Schneider as an Intern with the hometown Packers after writing countless letters to Ron Wolf. And both are without a doubt the best in their field and in my mind the 2 best in major sports.

    I've gotta arrange a sitdown! haha

    Would anyone here really care if he got such a contract providing he lives up to it? I know I wouldn't. I imagine he will get a large contract with a good chunk of guaranteed money, but I also expect it to be laden with incentives. He's going to have to earn the big money if that's what he wants. They have kept to this theme with the rest of the team I don't expect that to change when it comes to signing Harvin.
