Harvin Headed to Seattle

Wild on Sports
Harvin Headed to Seattle

The talk of the off-season in the NFC West, and rightly so given their run last season, has been the San Francisco 49ers. Gone is QB 1B - Alex Smith - via trade to Kansas City. In addition, the rumor mill has been chock full of Darrelle Revis to San Fran rumors. Well, all that attention is about to shift to another team in the division:  the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are the talk of the league this afternoon, agreeing to a trade with the Minnesota Vikings for star WR Percy Harvin.

The trade cannot become official until the NFL begins its 2013 calender year on Tuesday. It is being widely reported that the Seahawks will send the Vikings multiple draft picks (including a 2013 first rounder) pending both a physical, and more importantly, Harvin signing a contract extension.

The move is a huge one for Seattle. Rookie QB Russell Wilson proved that he is the real deal last season. Now with the explosive Harvin in the mix Wilson and the Seahawks offense will really cause match-up issues for their competition; most notably the 49ers who are looking to retool their secondary.

It will be interesting to see if this moves forces San Francisco's hand to make a move for Revis or another big time DB. In the mean time, it is the Seahawks that are the talk of the division and at this point should be considered a serious contender in the NFC in 2013.
