Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin needs hip surgery. Reports are Percy suffered the injury in workouts in the off-season, but they say he should return by week 13 against the Saints. No word on when the injury occurred.
Seattle was expecting Harvin to be a major contributor on offense when they traded for him back in March and gave up their 2013 1st rd pick, 3rd rd pick, and a mid round pick in 2014. After the trade the Seahawks signed Percy to a six-year deal worth $67 million contract that included 14.5 in guarantee money in 2013, and a $12 million signing bonus and a $2.5 million salary.
It was a gamble for the Seahawks that they felt they needed to take considering Harvin has a history of injuries throughout his career. But there’s no denying when Harvin is on the field and healthy he’s a dangerous receiver and kick return specialist. In his four years in Minnesota Harvin averaged 1,800 total yards, and in 2012 he was on pace for 2,400 yards. Which would have led the NFL, but his season was cut short due to a ankle injury. Here’s hoping to Harvin having a speedy recovery, and a healthy successful career with the Seattle Seahawks.
