According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, we have our first big blockbuster trade of the 2014 NFL season: The Seattle Seahawks are shipping Percy Harvin to the New York Jets:
BREAKING: The JETS have just agreed with Seattle to a trade sending WR Percy Harvin to NY for conditional pick. FOX SPORTS has learned.— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) October 17, 2014

Harvin has made just 22 catches this season, half of which saw him receiving the ball behind the line of scrimmage as Seattle has tried to find intuitive ways to put the ball in his hands, but they've been unable to get him going offensively thus far.
Against the Cowboys last week, Harvin’s three catches netted zero yards, and it looks as though something was going on behind the scenes with Harvin if Seattle was willing to get rid of him after having him for just 1.5 seasons.
This, after the Minnesota Vikings traded Harvin to Seattle for a first-round draft pick. Harvin missed most of last year before returning to return a kickoff for a touchdown vs. the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, in a game Seattle would have won anyway.
In other words, Seattle got burned on that deal. Let's see if they are able to get something for their troubles by shipping him to another team for a pick.
