UPDATED: Harvin's contract 6y/$67m $14.5m guaranteed

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • I'll say:

    6 years, $62 million, $26 million guaranteed (including $18 million signing bonus)

    First season: $4.5 million base $3.6 signing bonus = $8.1 cap number

    **Mod edit**

    Here is the deal:

  • It's going to be big.

    He wants Johnson/Fitzgerald money. Those were eight years, 120+ million with over $50 million guaranteed.

    I am expecting at least 6 years, 80 million, and 30 guaranteed. Otherwise, Harvin will just sit tight on the Vikings and try his luck as a FA next year.

    This is not a done deal until he agrees to a new contract.

    Anyone want to make me a new signature? I've held out hope long enough.

  • Jeezus, he is a football player in a GAME! It's not like he is curing cancer or caring for orphans. No way he gets that kind of money.

    I'll say $60K per year, company phone, gas reimbursement at $0.35/mile, 1 week paid vacation and 5 sick days.

  • I Wouldnt be surprised if Seattle gets him on a short term deal maybe 3yrs with a 4th yr option, I only hope they dont put us in a high cap situation with harvin a couple years from now when our core needs to be resigned Cause.... he may not hold up long term???? paying him a bunch up front and with the caveat that allows us to cut him in a couple a years with a low cap hit to us!!!!

    FYI- these huge long term deals suck all that matters is we front load the deal so we dont get bit on the back end.

  • It will be big but I trust John to make the right move here. I'm sure it passed the Pete, John, Tom & Darrell test. 12 mill signing with a 6-75-38 guaranteed with incentives. Hell, I really have no clue.

    No way that Percy gets a contract worth 30% more than those guys, not with this front office running things.

    Maybe not 30% more, but he'll probably get slightly more. and I think more years too(6 in my opinion).

    Harvin is better than those two. Not sure by how much, but at least marginally.

    I'm going to guess 6/70 with 30 mil guaranteed

  • There's just as many reports that PH WASN'T trying to extort the Vikings for a top WR contract, I don't think its necessarily true.

    I'd say for being on a true contending team, with a real stand out QB, that he can help become a top 15 offensive team, along with a top 10 defense and great special teams...

    I don't think its necessary to sign him to a Wallace type contact, I don't think PH wants that much vs. a chance to be on a great team.

    I predict 5 year, around $40 million, no idea on guaranteed money or cap hit or performance perks.

  • LaConfora is saying it'll be more than $12m a year. They must really like Percy, he'll certainly cost us some of our homegrown guys in the longrun, but I'm sure that's been factored in.

  • Based on hints from Adam Schefter that said he'd get close to Fitz/Megatron money, I think Harvin probably ends up with $13 / $14 million per. He's just 24 years old so it could be a lot of years too.

    I'd guess 6/80, with $33 million guaranteed.

    This should be it's own topic, but if I make it I'm pretty sure it would get locked, lol.

    Really good contract for both sides. It's quite a bit lower than I was expecting yesterday. Harvin deserves that kind of money, IMO.

    Are you only looking at receiving numbers?

    Because with Harvin you should look at ALL the stats. Total yards is where Pete and John are looking.

    More like 25 guaranteed if he stays healthy. He gets 14 million if he gets hurt tomorrow and never plays again (11 more depending on an injury clause). He gets 25 guaranteed if he plays out a certain number of years without getting hurt. or maybe I am looking at it backwards and he gets 11 million if he gets hurt.

    Still, I was expecting over 30 million, so it's still good.
