The Seattle Seahawks have traded for Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin. Trading for Harvin makes the Seahawks major NFC contenders in 2013. NFL.com's Marc Sessler cites FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer, who reports the Seahawks swapped first and seventh round picks in April's draft for Harvin.
That gives Seattle's young offense a truly dynamic wide receiver. That's exactly what quarterback Russell Wilson needed to help him succeed in year two. The Seahawks have given Wilson a legitimate vertical threat to complement his arm strength and big play potential.
That big play potential is something that defines Harvin. He is a dynamic and versatile playmaker who excels at stretching defenses deep. The Seahawks needed to expand their offense to tailor things more to Wilson's skills. Those skills include launching vertical salvos and throwing on the run.
