The Seattle Seahawks wanted Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron for Percy Harvin before he was eventually shipped to the New York Jets.

As crazy as Friday's trade between the New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks was, it could have even been bigger if Seattle had gotten the deal they really wanted.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks General Manger John Schneider contacted Browns GM Ray Farmer about a trade that would have shipped embattled receiver Percy Harvin to Cleveland for tight end Jordan Cameron.

It obviously didn't get done, as Harvin was shipped to the New York Jets on Friday for a conditional 6th-round pick that can become a 4th-rounder if certain incentives are met. Rapoport also reported the Harvin move opens the door for 2014 second-round pick Paul Richardson and fourth-round pick Kevin Norwood to get more playing time going forward.

Cameron is in the final year of his deal, and the Seahawks need help at tight end with Zach Miller still hurt and Anthony McCoy on I.R. It's safe to say Cleveland wasn't interested in the deal. It's more interesting than anything else.

Another deal that was pondered was a potential deal with the Broncos that would have netted the Seahawks Julius Thomas, though a deal wasn't close to ever being done.

The Bengals, Bucs, Colts and Broncos were among several other teams the Seahawks contacted about dealing Harvin, but it appears as though New York was the only team seriously interested in him.
