The first blockbuster move of the offseason went down on Monday, sending discontent wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks for draft picks.
According to Jay Glazer with FoxSports.com, the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a trade that would send wide receiver Percy Harvin to Seattle in exchange for draft picks.

According to multiple reports, the Seahawks are giving up a first round and seventh round pick this year, as well as a mid-round pick in 2014.

Percy Harvin reportedly told the Vikings he was demanding a trade, which general manager Rick Spielman said during NFL Combine wouldn't happen. However you have to feel that the Vikings won this trade in a way, to rid themselves of a lockerroom distraction (or disruption). The Daily Norseman writes, "Love it, hate it, whatever- this is happening" while Field Gulls called it the "first big blockbuster move" this offseason which "makes the Seahawks' offense more explosive."
