Seahawks, Harvin ready to finalize deal

Harvin, Seahawks have agreement in place
By Mike Florio | ProFootballTalk.com

The agreement between the Seahawks and Vikings was only half the story in the acquisition of Percy Harvin. The deal was contingent upon the Seahawks reaching an agreement with Harvin on a new contract.

That process is pretty close to wrapped up. Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reported the deal had been worked out, a report that can be confirmed. Florio has additional details that the agreement with Harvin will be in the vicinity of the deals recently signed by Vincent Jackson in Tampa Bay (five years, $55.5 million) and Dwayne Bowe in Kansas City (five years, $56 million). Big money to be sure, but not the stratosphere of Detroit’s Calvin Johnson and Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald.

Now, you’ve also got to remember that not only is Seattle ponying up that money, but it’s giving up significant draft capital for the privilege of doing so. It’s a big move by the Seahawks, and one that might end up being one of the most significant of this NFL offseason.

The two sides can’t officially finalize the deal until after the league year starts, which is Tuesday at 1 p.m. Pacific. Also, Harvin must check out in a physical exam, but at this point, that’s a formality.
