Report: Seahawks Didn’t Ask Patriots About Trading For Percy Harvin

Percy HarvinWe’ll never know if the New England Patriots would have offered a better deal than the New York Jets for Percy Harvin.

The Seattle Seahawks didn’t contact the Patriots before trading the wide receiver to the Jets last week, a source with knowledge of the situation told ProFootballTalk on Tuesday.

The Patriots drafted three of Harvin’s college teammates — former Florida defensive end Jermaine Cunningham, linebacker Brandon Spikes and tight end Aaron Hernandez — in 2010. Cunningham is on the Jets’ injured reserve list, Spikes is with the Buffalo Bills and Hernandez is sitting in a jail cell.

Harvin was dealt to the Jets for a conditional draft pick, which could turn out being a fourth- or sixth-rounder. Harvin reportedly was booted from Seattle for fighting teammates, among other things.

The Seahawks reportedly called the Denver Broncos about a possible deal, offering Harvin for tight end Julius Thomas. Perhaps Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll wasn’t interested in helping out the team he coached from 1997 to 1999.
