The Harvin Numbers Are Now Known

I have refrained from doing any sort of comprehensive opinion piece about the Percy Harvin trade because I was missing one key bit of information.  I’ll be writing the opinion piece soon, because Harvin’s contract information is now public.

The Seahawks, according to PFT, traded for and then signed Harvin to a six year deal worth up to $67 million.  This means he will now earn an average of $12.845 million per each year of the contract.  He will get a $12 million dollar signing bonus, and as PFT points out he is now in a state with no income tax, and a total of $25.5 million guaranteed.

I am really disappointed that Percy Harvin is no longer a Vikings, but these numbers are pretty staggering, and the biggest risk of all for the Vikings might have been trying to sign him to a similar deal.

Five of those years have been here at Vikings Territory where he continues to surround himself with enough talented individuals that people keep coming back. As proud as he is of what Vikings Territory has become, his real treasures are in his home... a beautiful wife and three amazing children (and a dog named Percy).

  1. 14.5 is guaranteed, the other 11 million is guaranteed only for injury. This deal is very similar to what Dwayne Bowe got and Percy is a better player. This makes Percy the 5th highest paid WR in the game. Very fair.

  2. No bob…that isnt quite fair…..do you honestly believe that Percy is the 5th best WR in the league?

  3. AK….. Could it be?? The beard was cut by Buffalo!!! He’d look good in purple.

    1. Feel bad for the guys with Winfield AND Harvin jerseys. Of course I don’t feel NEAR as bad for those guys as I do for the guys that named their dogs after them. You know, like “Winfield” and stuff. . .

      1. It doesn’t seem like that tried to work anything out… If he had a chance to come back and didn’t
        Can’t say I would blame him.

      2. I think Adam feels just the opposite. “Here Percy, Here Percy. . .”
        (Sorry Adam, can’t resist.)

  4. The countdown has begun for when he blows up again or when he tests positive for weed. Ya know it’s coming!
