Percy Harvin: 'I'm at peace' with New York Jets

Percy Harvin's drama-fueled exit from Seattle has given way to a soft landing in the Big Apple.

"I'm at peace," Harvin said Tuesday, per ESPN New York, adding: "I'm enjoying myself. My family is loving it. I'm loving the teammates. It's all been good. It's been very smooth."

As the centerpiece of New York's passing game, Harvin currently leads Gang Green with 174 receiving yards over his three starts with the team. Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell admitted he was "disappointed" with how Harvin fit into Seattle's offense before the trade, but embattled Jets play-caller Marty Mornhinweg deserves credit for feeding the ball to his new toy.

Harvin is essentially on a tryout with the Jets, who must decide whether he fits into their long-term plans -- and the locker room -- after whispers of dissension in Seattle.

"The things that have been put out there about him, the things that have been said," quarterback Michael Vick told reporters, "we don't see it."

The larger question for the Jets is whether or not they value Harvin enough to pay his $10.5 million price tag for next season. The even bigger question is whether or not general manager John Idzik will be around to make that decision. Coach Rex Ryan, barring a miracle from the skies, will not.
