The Seahawks are giving up a first-round draft pick and other draft compensation for Percy Harvin.
They also appear poised to give him a monster contract.
CBS’ Jason La Canfora reported Monday night that it “sounds like” Harvin’s new deal with Seattle will exceed $12 million per season.
Only 24, Harvin has racked up close to 4,000 combined receiving and rushing yards in four NFL seasons. He is also a dynamic kickoff returner. To wit: he needs just three kickoff return TDs to tie the league record held by Leon Washington and Joshua Cribbs.
The Seahawks look ready to pay Harvin like a franchise cornerstone. Now, as PFT’s Mike Florio wrote earlier on Monday, let’s see where Harvin’s contract stacks up with other highly-paid wideouts.
