Reports: Seahawks tried to trade Harvin for Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron

The Seahawks were intent on getting rid of wide receiver Percy Harvin but not before trying to land a big catch in return.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Seahawks tried to trade Harvin to the Denver Broncos for tight end Julius Thomas. Thomas is on an expiring contract, but he has nine touchdowns this season and it’s easy to see why the Broncos balked at the trade.

The Seahawks also tried to land Cleveland tight end Jordan Cameron, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Cameron is also on an expiring contract.

A couple things are clear: The Seahawks went after some big names in trying to unload Harvin but instead had to settle for a sixth-round pick next year that could potentially become a fourth-round pick. And the Seahawks were interested in landing a tight end (starting tight end Zach Miller is currently out with an injury).
