The New York Jets needed a little fight in their game.
Reports are beginning to illuminate why the Seattle Seahawks traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets in a move that skunked up the football world and broke twitter and all of that nice, dramatic stuff.
A Seattle Times‘ source has said that Harvin got in an altercation with Golden Tate before the Super Bowl that resulted in a black eye for Tate. Unless Harvin pushed Tate in just the right way so that he conveniently fell on his face, Harvin probably punched Tate in the face. Anyways, it’s not just an isolated incident. Harvin could be a black eye giving, chin cutting menace. That’s right, he also cut Baldwins chin in an altercation off the field during the preseason.
In a sport where a player gets his chin cut and his eye blackened regularly at practice, perhaps he thinks it’s chill to pop a friend in the face? Super Bowl sike up? No?
So Percy Harvin isn’t just a diva. He’s a detriment to the locker room.
“He’s just a time bomb,” one NFL source said, who described Harvin as “too moody.”
Moody? Or a guy that regularly fights his teammates?
With all this swirling and the lack of production for Harvin, this trade smells an awful lot like the Trent Richardson trade between the Browns and Colts. The move will cause a lot of hooplah because it’s a midseason trade with a player who has a big name, but may not have a huge impact in the longterm. Harvin is indubitably more talented but these reports paint him to be indubitably more problemed.
But problemed is exactly how I’d describe the 1-6 Jets, so Harvin and the New York Jets are a perfect fit.
