MINNEAPOLIS >> Percy Harvin is headed to Seattle, and Adrian Peterson isn't happy about it.
Harvin, Minnesota's moody and multi-talented young wide receiver, will join the Seahawks for a package of draft picks that includes Seattle's first-round selection next month, No. 25 overall. A person with knowledge of the deal confirmed the details Monday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade won't be official until the new league year begins Tuesday and Harvin passes a physical.
The 24-year-old Harvin will give second-year quarterback Russell Wilson a dynamic playmaker not yet at his peak. His departure from Minnesota will leave an even bigger void in a group of receivers that was already one of the thinnest in the NFL - and at least one disappointed former teammate in Peterson, the star running back and league MVP.
"The best all around player I ever seen or you'll ever see! Goes to Seattle! I feel like I just got kicked in the stomach. Several times!!!" Peterson posted on Twitter.
