Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin only touched the ball twice in the regular season and four times in the postseason, but he’s still a big part of the Broncos’ defensive game plan.
Denver cornerback Champ Bailey says the Broncos have to be ready for Harvin being a huge threat with the ball in his hands.
“That’s a dangerous man right there,” Bailey said, via the Denver Post. “He can change the game if you allow him to. I remember playing him when he was in Minnesota, and he’s one of the most explosive guys coming off the ball.”
The fact that Harvin has hardly played with the Seahawks may actually be to his advantage in the Super Bowl, as the Broncos don’t really know what role he’s going to play in Seattle’s offense.
“I don’t know how they are going to use him,” Bailey said. “We don’t have a lot of tape on him, if any, but they are going to use him. You don’t have a weapon like that and not use it.”
Injuries have so plagued Harvin that he hasn’t started a game and finished it healthy since October of 2012. But if Harvin can finally do that in February of 2014, he’s going to be a big problem for Denver’s defense.
