Percy Harvin is officially a member of the New york Jets, who formally announced the trade shortly after noon on Saturday.
"Percy is a versatile, dynamic player who has been productive on offense and special teams," general manager John Idzik said in a statement. "We’re excited about adding him to the Jets."
Seahawks GM John Schneider released this statement: "Although this was an extremely difficult decision, we are constantly evaluating our team and believe at this time, that this is in our best interest to move the team forward. We thank Percy for his efforts that contributed to a Super Bowl XLVIII victory and wish him well."
Neither the Jets nor the Seattle Seahawks disclosed the terms of the trade, except to say it's a conditional draft pick in 2015.
Harvin (thigh) was listed as questionable on the Seahawks' injury report for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. He flew to New Jersey and passed his physical Saturday morning. The Jets are off this weekend after playing Thursday night. They return to practice Monday, when Harvin will be introduced to the media.
The Jets picked up the remainder of Harvin contract, meaning there was no renegotiation, according to a source. His salary for the remainder of the season is guaranteed -- $7.1 million. There is no guaranteed money beyond this season, meaning the Jets can cut him after this season without any future cap implications. The rest of the contract looks like this:
2015 -- $10.5 million
2016 -- $9.9 million
2017 -- $9.95 million
2018 -- $11.15 million
