This is a very unusual story. The New York Jets have traded a conditional mid-round pick to the Seattle Seahawks for former Vikings receiver Percy Harvin.
Interestingly, this gives Percy three bye weeks—the one Seattle already had, this week because the Jets have already played, and the Jets’ future bye week (Week 11), which isn’t to say Percy orchestrated it that way—he didn’t ask for a trade, and certainly not to the Jets.
Odd that Harvin wasn’t on field much at all in crunch time of last game and didn’t seem to fit for whatever reason. He did not seek a trade

Sounds like the reason the Seahawks moved on was for generic reasons, but one that means different things depending on how you read it:
Seahawks traded WR Percy Harvin to Jets, as @JayGlazer reported. Seattle felt Harvin was not a fit there.

For Vikings fans, that sounds familiar—it feels a lot like the locker room problems he was constantly having with two coaching staffs and three quarterbacks.
