Percy Harvin traded to Seattle, Adrian Peterson reacts

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms of a trade that will send Percy Harvin to Seattle. The deal was first reported by FOX Sports' Jay Glazer.

According to the report, the Vikings will receive Seattle's first round pick (25th overall) and a 7th round pick in this year's NFL Draft, along with a mid-round pick next year.

Adrian Peterson tweeted his pain following the news, but wished Harvin the best of luck.

@AdrianPeterson: "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!!!"

@AdrianPeterson: "I wish my boy Percy nothing but success! God bless you homie."

Harvin will rejoin receiver Sidney Rice in Seattle, who was his teammate for one season in Minnesota. Seattle's offensive coordinator, Darrell Bevell, also has a connection to Harvin. He held the same job in Minnesota when the Vikings drafted Harvin in 2009.

Harvin led the league in receptions this past season before ending up on injured reserve after a season-ending ankle injury. That followed a well-publicized sideline dust-up with head coach Leslie Frazier.

Harvin is in his final season of his rookie contract is reportedly on his way to Seattle for a physical that will make the deal official when free agency begins Tuesday at 3 p.m.
