Percy Harvin called his trade to the Seahawks a “big relief” at an introductory news conference with the media on Tuesday. He even showed a little emotion as he talked about the new opportunity in front of him. And how could you blame him?
“I’m very grateful for this opportunity that I’m given to come compete with some of the great players that they already have in place in this program,” he said. They are a playoff team and it’s like a dream come true for me and my family. I can’t express how much this opportunity means to me.”
When he finished his opening statement, he seemed to be overcome with emotion, but you be the judge if Percy got choked up via Seahawks.com.
The best part is he already sounds like a Pete Carroll type of player, saying he wants to COMPETE.
Harvin also shed some light on his time in Minnesota and how much the fans meant to him.
“I want to thank the whole Vikings nation for the four years I had there, it was great,” Harvin said. “I’m thankful for the opportunity they gave me.”
Harvin, who was drafted by the Vikings in ’09, had his ups and downs with the organization including a period when he hinted at a holdout and suffered from nagging injuries. Looks like sunny days are ahead for Harvin as he inked a multi-million dollar deal with Seattle.
