Percy Harvin trade: Seahawks include 1st round pick for Vikings receiver

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

The parameters of the Harvin-to-Seattle trade seem to be in place.

In exchange for Percy Harvin, the Minnesota Vikings will receive the Seattle Seahawks' first-round pick in this year's NFL Draft, according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer.

The Vikings will also receive a seventh-round selection this year and a mid-round pick next year, according to Glazer.

ESPN's Adam Schefter also reported that the trade is contingent upon the Seahawks and Harvin agreeing on a new contract. Schefter said the deal is "likely to be completed" in the next two days.

In what seemed like a flash, the Seahawks acquired one of the most dynamic wide receivers in football. Harvin, 24, spent the first four years of his career with the Vikings. In 54 career games, Harvin has caught 280 passes for 3,302 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Danny Kelly at Field Gulls writes acquiring Harvin "instantly makes the Seahawks' offense more explosive."

The thought of adding Harvin to the offense must excite Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. With Russell Wilson leading the group and Marshawn Lynch anchoring it, Harvin will provide a deep threat for the offense. Harvin will join Sidney Rice and Golden Tate as the team's top receivers. Rice and Tate combined for 95 catches for 1,436 yards and 14 touchdowns last season.
