We’ve now had an evening to let the Percy Harvin injury news sit and simmer, and it wasn’t a good evening at all.

Yesterday I wrote that we need to chill out a little before breaking things during our Harvin reactions. I cautioned that we need to wait for the second opinion Harvin will seek, and that’s happening Tuesday.

When you’re an NFL general manager who has one of the best young secondaries in the league on his payroll, keeping said employees smiling and happy will in turn prolong the life of your employment. See, everybody wins.

With Kam Chancellor — the safety voted most eligible to break bones (not a real award) — at the ripe age of 25 and quickly ascending while being ranked 21st at his position by Pro Football Focus, the managerial decision was easy for Seahawks GM John Schneider: extend this man.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Denver Broncos

The market for former Bucs DE Michael Bennett wasn’t strong when free agency kicked off. Eventually, he signed a one year, $5 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks on March 15th.

Chicago Bears v Minnesota Vikings

Yesterday, wide receiver Percy Harvin was traded from the Minnesota Vikings to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a slew of draft picks including a 1st and 7th rounder in this year’s draft. Today, Harvin got that gigantic contract he’s been looking for all along (and a chance to build that Scrooge McDuck style vault/swimming pool I’m sure he’s always wanted).

According to Profootballtalk, Harvin has signed a six-year contract worth $67 million.

The base salaries are $2.5 million in 2013 (fully guaranteed), $11 million in 2014 (guaranteed for injury for now, fully guaranteed on fifth day of the 2014 waiver period), $10.5 million in 2015, $9.9 million in 2016, $9.95 million in 2016, and $11.15 million in 2017.
