Chart: Vikings-Seahawks blockbuster trade
- March 12, 2013 - 12:09 AM
Vikings get: First- and seventh-round selections in next month’s draft, plus a third-round pick in 2014. That first-rounder is the 25th overall pick (the Vikings already own the 23rd pick).
Seahawks get: Percy Harvin, the moody but multitalented wide receiver who scored 29 touchdowns in four seasons (54 games) with the Vikings (20 receiving, four rushing, five on kick returns).
The fallout: Vikings now have only two receivers under contract who have played in an NFL game: Jarius Wright and Stephen Burton. Wright caught 22 passes as a rookie in 2012. Burton has seven career catches.
New digs: Harvin will join an offense that is led by dynamic young QB Russell Wilson, and he will be reunited with WR Sidney Rice and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, whom he spent time with in Minnesota.
