The New York Jets announced Saturday they have acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks for a conditional draft pick.
Harvin, a star in last season's Super Bowl but injury prone, brings versatility and game-breaking skills to the Jets (1-6).
New York released receiver David Nelson to make room for Harvin.
General manager John Idzik called Harvin a "dynamic player who has been productive on offense and special teams."
The 26-year-old Harvin has played in 60 games with only 47 career starts since being a first-round pick by Minnesota in 2009. He was traded to the Seahawks in 2013, appearing in one regular-season game because of hip surgery. But he ran back the second-half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown in Seattle's 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl.
