Update: Percy Harvin will make his Jets debut next Sunday, he spent Saturday meeting with OC Marty Mornhinweg and WR coach Sanjay Lal, going over playbook.

With the Jets having played Thursday night, Harvin is afforded some extra opportunity to prepare with the team and coaches. It should be a nice debut game against Buffalo as the Bills pass defense ranks 17th in the league, gives up an average of 269 yards per game through the air and have allowed 11 passing touchdowns this season.

Seahawks asked the Browns about a Jordan Cameron for Percy Harvin swap before he was traded to the Jets.

We're going to continue to hear more "this team was going to trade this guy for Harvin," at least until he plays his first game as a Jet. None of i means anything as it is all speculation and what a team asked for isn't necessarily the player offered or discusses. The deal is done and "what may have been" means nothing.

NFL Media's Michael Robinson said he helped break up a fight between Percy Harvin and Golden Tate the night before the Seahawks' Super Bowl victory last season.

Outside of a kickoff return for a touchdown in the Seahawks blowout victory over the Broncos in last year's Super Bowl, Harvin failed to score a receiving touchdown in any of his six regular season games. It is now appearing that maybe trading him to the Jets was to improve conditions in the locker room, but either way he should find more opportunities to be a fantasy contributor now with the Jets.

Percy Harvin reportedly 'body slammed' Golden Tate, and had issues with several teammates in Seattle.

More details have recently been coming out about Harvin's anger issues and behavioral problems. He's gotten into multiple fights with teammates, gave Tate a black eye before the Super Bowl, and apparently checked himself out of last week's game early. This, in addition to the obvious poor fit in Seattle's offensive scheme, is a key reason why the Seahawks shipped him off to New York. Harvin has a world of talent, but he's not going to get anywhere if he can't control his actions. Hopefully the very mature Rex Ryan (yeah, right) can figure Harvin out and get help him to focus on football.

Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports that he Buccaneers, Browns and Bengals were all interested in trading for Percy Harvin.

Not a huge surprise that the Bucs and Browns wanted an upgrade at wide receiver, but the Bengals are a novel entry on the list. Harvin went to a team that prolly will not use his skill set to the fullest, but where he will get the opportunity to shine and possibly save Rex Ryan's job.

Percy Harvin has passed his physical and the trade to the Jets is now official. 

Good news for the Jets who will now get a full week of practice under their belt with their new toy. They'll face Buffalo's 17th-ranked pass defense for their first game together, so you can probably expect a significant number of targets for Harvin next week.

Percy Harvin is set to have his physical with the Jets Saturday afternoon after flying there early this morning. It could be official today.

While many might think that a move to the Jets is a negative one, Harvin actually stands a very good chance at seeing his value increase exponentially. He was under-utilized in Seattle, a run-first team with a quarterback whose natural inclination is to run as well, and now comes to a team in desperate need of a player like him. He is a massive upgrade to any receiver on the Jets not named Eric Decker and he offers up the versatility and speed that offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg desperately craves. Technically the Jets are a run-first team as well, but Mornhinweg is still a little too reliant on the pass and gimmick plays, so Harvin should fit with at least some of his schemes. We're not saying he's going to be your fantasy savior, but he is more than likely to see an improvement in his stats and overall fantasy value from where it's been so far this season.

Seahawks are expected to get a conditional pick in the Round 2-4 range for Percy Harvin.

The round of the pick will likely depend on Harvin's performance with the Jets this season. He'll likely get off to a slow start as he learns the playbook, but he could have increased value as a centerpiece of the Jets' offense down the stretch.

Jets have just agreed with Seattle to a trade that sends WR Percy Harvin to New York in exchange for a conditional draft pick.

A little crazy and somewhat comical after hearing Seattle offensive line coach Tom Cable say that the team wants to get Harvin more involved downfield. Apparently downfield means New York. The Jets pick up a quality skill player and finally someone who can work opposite Eric Decker. He has been completely under-utilized in Seattle and should have an immediate impact with the Jets. He still has the injury-risk tag on him, so hopefully the Jets aren't giving up more than a third-round pick here but he's a vast improvement to the garbage the Jets are using this season.

Seahawks want to use Percy Harvin more down the field. "Harvin’s speed is too dynamic and his ability to blow by defenders too special to not have him challenge defenses deep," offensive-line coach Tom Cable said.

Well it's about time somebody noticed and spoke up. Harvin is averaging roughly five targets per game, he has one reception for more than 20 yards and he's been targeted in the red zone just four times all year. It would certainly benefit the Seahawks to have him much more involved in the passing game. Of course, he is currently dealing with a thigh issue and while he returned to practice Thursday, he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.
