Sometimes it's how the cookie crumbles during the NFL offseason.  Players will ask to be traded and sometimes they get that wish.  Percy Harvin was disgruntled in the Twin Cities and he wasn’t shy about it at all.Percy Harvin recently stated that he thinks he should get paid as much as Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions.  Seriously?  Calvin Johnson is a marquee wide receiver; Percy Harvin is an average receiver at best.  However, he is a great return man but the Seahawks have a better kick returner than Harvin with Leon Washington.Harvin also has some health concerns.  I have no doubt that he will pass his physical, but his history with migraine headaches is well documented.  He also missed the last eight games of the 2012 season with an ankle injury.Since Percy Harvin was drafted in 2009, 79 players have had 1,000 yard receiving seasons.  Harvin hasn’t had a single one in his four years in the League.  The most receiving touchdowns he’s ever had in a season is six.  He has had five kickoff returns for touchdowns in his career and averaged 27.9 yards per return.If Harvin wants Calvin Johnson money, then he needs to catch about 40 more passes per season and have at least 500 more receiving yards per season, because right now he’s not worth it.I hope Harvin does well in Seattle, they could use a good receiver but they need a marquee one and Harvin is that, yet.  One thing that will change in Seattle is Harvin’s jersey number because 12 is a number that no Seahawks player can ever wear, it belongs to the fans.
