RENTON, Wash. >> The Seattle Seahawks have completed their trade with Minnesota to acquire wide receiver Percy Harvin in exchange for a trio of draft picks.

Seattle announced the finalization of the trade on Tuesday afternoon once the NFL’s league year began. Harvin passed his physical and will be introduced at the team’s facility later Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Harvin will give second-year quarterback Russell Wilson a dynamic playmaker not yet at his peak and reunite him with former teammate Sidney Rice and former offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
