Browns, Broncos targeted by Seahawks in Harvin deal

The Jets were the team that ended up making a deal for Percy Harvin, but they were hardly the only call Seattle general manager John Schneider made over the last few weeks.

Sources involved in the process told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that the Colts, Browns, Broncos and Buccaneers were also among the teams Schneider looked at for a possible deal.

Dealing Harvin grew in importance after Harvin refused to re-enter last week's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Interest from the Jets picked up heavily the morning after they lost to the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football, according to Rapoport.

A Seahawks-Browns deal potentially hinged on the Browns trading tight end Jordan Cameron.

According to Rapoport, the Harvin move opens the door for 2014 second-round pick Paul Richardson and fourth-round pick Kevin Norwood, both of whom the Seahawks were anxious to see on the field.

Heading into Sunday, Richardson had just one target and one catch. Norwood has not been targeted once this season.

It would be pretty incredible to think of Denver's offense with the addition of Harvin, or what the speedy wideout could possibly mean for Brian Hoyer in Cleveland, but now we'll get to see if he makes Geno Smith's life any easier.
