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.
