Percy Harvin Traded for Conditional Sixth Rounder

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The terms of the trade between the New York Jets and the Seattle Seahawks are now out.

This is a better deal than before, when it was thought the deal was between a second and fourth rounder. All the team gives up now is a sixth rounder, and although I'm not positive of the terms of the deal, my guess is it becomes a fourth if he's still on the roster next year. Worst case scenario is that the Jets spent $7.1 million and a sixth rounder for Harvin, and they can cut bait at the end of the season with no guaranteed money owed to Harvin. Seems like a slam dunk to me. It's hard to criticize the terms of this trade, even if you have qualms about the process by which it was achieved.
