Report: Seahawks proposed a Harvin-for-Julius Thomas trade

How’s this for a blockbuster trade proposal?

On this morning’s “Sunday NFL Countdown,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Seahawks offered wideout Percy Harvin to the Broncos in exchange for tight end Julius Thomas.

The Broncos passed, and Harvin was ultimately shipped to the Jets.

As Schefter noted, the 26-year-old Thomas is in the final year of his contract. And tight end is a need for Seattle with Zach Miller out for the time being.

Nevertheless, it’s logical to see why the Broncos passed. Wide receiver is a strength for the club, especially with Wes Welker back in the fold along side Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

And Julius Thomas, for his part, is having a wonderful season, with nine TD catches for 4-1 Denver.

Schefter also reported that Cleveland and Tampa Bay were both approached about Harvin, whom the Jets acquired for a conditional sixth-round pick.
