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."
