Percy Harvin on joining Jets: They got a lot of pieces

Print

Percy Harvin is in New York.

The dynamic receiver told the Jets' official website he was "very excited" to join Gang Green.

"I just think they got a lot of the pieces here," Harvin said. "You've got Geno (Smith), with a great veteran behind him. You got (Eric) Decker. You got two great running backs. They've always had a great defense here. So that's all exciting stuff to me. But all I remember is them being a very tough team. I know they have a few losses in their hands, but they was in every single game with a couple of plays here and there that could have easily switched the game. So I definitely think this team has all the pieces. So like I said, that's what excited me, knowing they already had the pieces here and I could just fit right in, try to make my little plays, and hopefully I can be a little difference."

The receiver said he's unsure what his role will be, but he's prepared to make plays any time he touches the ball.

"I'm not sure yet," Harvin said. "I'm sure it'll be the receiving stuff. Maybe running back, maybe not. Definitely, I would hope, I'll be out there on special teams. But I'm not really sure yet, but we'll find out here in the next few days."

Harvin will also get to meet with the New York media within the next few days, and you can bet they'll have some additional questions for him.
