A healthy Harvin is one of the league's rare difference-making talents. He was arguably the NFL's premier receiver on film early in the 2012 season before going down with an ankle injury.
The Seahawks believe Harvin's return to the starting lineup will make them even more formidable next season than they were as the NFL's dominant team in 2013.
Tight end Zach Miller expressed similar sentiments after the Super Bowl, telling Around The League's Marc Sessler that Harvin's scintillating performance was merely a sneak preview for what the Seahawks will unveil in 2014.
The Seahawks could have been closer to the top of the list had offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell been able to follow through on his offseason plans to use more exotic formations with Harvin expanding the field and spreading opposing defenses thin.
Don't expect the coaching staff to limit Harvin's role in an effort to keep him healthy next season.
