espn_g_harvin01_600

The Vikings and Seahawks quickly have finalized a deal that will send the 2009 NFL offensive rookie of the year to play with the guy who should have been the 2012 NFL offensive rookie of the year.

Though the terms aren’t yet known, one term is clear: Harvin will be getting paid.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the deal won’t happen without a new contract for Harvin. He’s currently entering the final year of his rookie contract.

The question becomes how much will the Seahawks pay? Surely, they’ve been talking to Harvin’s agent, Joel Segal, and they’re comfortable with the asking price.

Harvin was believed to be looking for Calvin Johnson/Larry Fitzgerald money.
