Percy Harvin’s feeling “immensely good” in Seahawks camp

AP

The Seahawks might be missing the engine to their offense at the moment, but they do have another key part back.

While Marshawn Lynch is holding out, they can at least look to the fact they have a healthy Percy Harvin.

A year ago this time, Harvin was going on the PUP list and having hip surgery. Now, he’s healthy and ready to contribute for a full season.

Oh man, it’s immensely good,” Harvin said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “The trainers today were saying last year this time I was in there consulting with a whole bunch of doctors looking through the mirror and hearing all the music and seeing all of the fans and wanting to be out here so bad. So this year, being able to get my foundation back and go through the whole off season with no problems, OTA’s, minicamp, and then to this camp. As long as I keep practicing and building my foundation, I’ll be fine.”

Asked the last time he was fully healthy, Harvin replied: “It’s been a while. But I don’t know if any football player can say they’re fully healthy playing football, but this is the best I’ve felt in a long, long time.”

The Seahawks paid a ransom, in draft picks and cash, to enjoy Harvin for parts of three games. He showed in those cameos that he has game-breaking talent, now they just need him on the field on a more regular basis.

  1. So much talent and so little heart. Percy’s had one excuse or another since he was drafter. Why haven’t we heard a word about his migraines since he left MN?

  2. “A ransom?” They paid peanuts to get the most explosive player in football. The 26th pick in 2013, a 7th in 2013, and the last pick in the 3rd round in 2014. That adds up to the points it takes to move from 26th to 18th in 1st round. And they can cut him next year and save $7 million under the cap.

    So tired of hearing this crap. They paid peanuts for the guy and he had a major impact in winning a Super Bowl. Seahawks fans will take that any time. And please list for me the players they could have gotten at 26 that are better than Harvin? Oh that’s right, none.

  3. But how does he feel when he’s not smoking up?

    All joking aside, a healthy and happy Harvin in the Seahawks offense is not what anyone else in the NFC wants to see.

  4. Halfway through the interview he declined to comment saying he had a headache. ..
    #@Sehawks game is biggest gathering of nerds in all of Canada
    #@Seahawks fans …talking loud since 3 months ago
    #@Niner fans take over your lame city every year

  5. We have no whether or not Percy knows how to properly use the word “immensely”… In his interview he said “tremendously good”… So all we know is the author made a small transcription mistake, and buhbay1c is a grammar nazi.

    I’m gonna go watch video of Percy returning that kickoff for a TD in the Super Bowl. Naked. With a bowl of butter.

  6. “They paid peanuts to get the most explosive player in football. The 26th pick in 2013, a 7th in 2013, and the last pick in the 3rd round in 2014.”

    Typical shehawks fan, giving up a first rd pick is never “penuts” let alone throwing in a 3rd Rd, then paying him $12 mil a year to ride the pine, and saying he had a major affect on the sb game, he returned a kick off to put them up 28-0, I’m pretty sure they would have been OK if he didn’t get that td. Dude is over paid and over valued, paying a receiver that much money to play in a run based and defense system, not the brightest idea.

    In another year he will be cut or traded and Seattle fans will be saying how he wasn’t worth it and how terrible he is as Seattle fans do with the little football knowledge they keep showing.

  7. No he’ll be knocked out in game one. Get ready for the Thursday night opener against Green Bay. If/When Percy tries to run one across the middle, Clay III or Peppers is going to hit him so hard he’ll quit. It could be his last game.

  8. It’s not easy to just change your style of play with a snap of a finger, but Harvin really has to make a cognizant effort to do just that. A lot of smart WRs across the NFL know when to fight for extra yards, and when to avoid big hits by going down. You can certainly be injured in a myriad of ways, not just during an effort to fight for more yards, but those situations in which Harvin chooses to take a big hit for the purpose of potentially gaining a couple extra yards just isn’t worth injuring yourself over.

    Working on his footballs skills will always be priority #1, but self preservation is the key to Harvin being able to display those football skills for 16 games…instead of 6 games.

  9. “The Seahawks paid a ransom, in draft picks and cash”

    Already made well worth it in Superbowl 48 alone. Everything else that he helps produce is just icing on the cake now.

  10. He has to feel good, he is out of that last place hell hole of the Vikings, has a Superbowl ring, something no Viking team could claim in 53 years of trying and ready to compete toward another.

    Go ask Craig Jennings how he feels, no Qb, last place finish and looking at a repeat performance this year

  11. Go ask Craig Jennings how he feels, no Qb, last place finish and looking at a repeat performance this year

    Answer: still better than being anywhere in Wisconsin….

  12. He hasn’t ha a migraine in 3 years. He had sleep apnea apparently. Let’s get over that. I can wait for him to regain form and shut up all the same doubters that didn’t think we would win the Super Bowl. Road to a repeat is underway

  13. When the Hawks line up Percy on one side and equally fast WR Paul Richardson on the other.

    NO DEFENSE will be able to cover that kind of speed……mark it!

    #GOHAWKS!!

  14. Why haven’t we heard a word about his migraines since he left MN?

    Not even close!

  17. The trade to get him is a wash. The goal is to win a SB. Seattle beat SF in the real SB. Harvin is made of glass. Hope he does make it a whole season. But I doubt it.

  18. ..a 1st, 3rd and 7th+ 67 mil for a fragile guy. He just had a 1 catch season. Not very good return on investment. A guy who has played only 10 games the last 2 seasons. No one questions his ability. You can have all the ability in the world, but if you’re never on the field, it doesn’t matter. Really you paid a kings ransom for someone that had no effect on your season..spin it however you like. It was a terrible move..

    Btw-DeAndre Hopkins was selected at 27..just came off an 800rec yd season..On a rookies salary..

    To make matters worse you guys got rid of your best receiver in tate..tell me what rec group is better?

    Harvin, Baldwin, Kearse or Tate Hopkins Baldwin.

  19. I can’t wait for that winter day in Arizona .the hawks going for the repeat against who ever the AFC wants to put up against Seattle my word of advice to the NFC incl.the forty whi I mean niners start recording Dr. Phil now so you have something to watch while our hawks do there thing killing teams with there defence remember the that defence ……crabtree .I can’t wait

  20. Can’t wait for opening weekend when harvin gets shown up by Cobb…. But we probably won’t even get to see it because harvin will get placed on the PUP list with a headache. And no shehawks fans, you won’t get another fail Mary to deliver you a fake win, no one forgot you really lost that game! Bring on the season!

  21. Somehow Viking fans tricked themselves into thinking Patterson produced as a WR – he was below average but he was a damn good KR. Tavon Austin put up better WR stats and yet Rams fans aren’t beating their chest about it.

    Percy Harvin no matter who is on the field he is the fastest player and defenses have to account for him wherever he lines up. Even when he isn’t being tossed the ball coverage is rolled his way. The Super Bowl he ran that sweep play and Pot Roast was still looking in the backfield while Harvin was 10 yards down field.
