Despite Vikings GM Rick Spielman denying that the Vikings are going to trade Harvin at the scouting combine last month, Harvin will be reunited with Seattle’s offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who drafted Harvin in 2009 while working in Minnesota.
Harvin had reportedly asked for a trade out of Minnesota because he wasn’t a big enough part of the offense and didn’t get along with the medical staff. Harvin is entering the final year of his rookie contract and had his season ended on November 4 due to a sprained ankle.
Despite playing in only nine games, Harvin led the team in both receiving yards (677) and receptions (62).
