Packers, Patriots Interested In Percy Harvin

The Packers and Patriots are among the teams showing interest in Percy Harvin, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (via Twitter). On Tuesday, Rapoport identified the Patriots as a team to watch when it comes to Harvin. The Packers appear to be a new team in the mix for the athletic wide receiver.

Harvin has played for three teams during his five-year career, starting with the Vikings before being moved to the Seahawks and Jets, each time thorough trade. New York released Harvin earlier this week, clearing more than $10MM in cap space and guaranteeing that it would only send a sixth-round pick to Seattle rather than a fourth-rounder (as per terms of the deal).

Harvin, 26, was acquired by the Jets from the Seahawks back in October in the most surprising in-season trade of 2014. However, the veteran receiver and return man didn’t have a huge impact in New York, totaling 29 receptions for 350 yards and a touchdown in his eight games with the Jets. Harvin also averaged just 24.8 yards per kick return, with no TDs.
