Harvin’s best season came in 2011 when he caught 87 passes for 967 yards and six touchdowns for the Minnesota Vikings, the team that drafted him in the first round in 2009. That was also the only season in which he’s played a full 16 games. This past season, Harvin was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the New York Jets. He played five games with the Seahawks and eight games with the Jets, but came up short of 500 receiving yards in the end.
Harvin was released by the Jets this offseason due to a prohibitive cap figure and lack of production. But he’ll be 27 years old when the 2015 season gets underway, and if he can stay healthy, then he should be a valuable asset. He has 332 receptions for 3,802 yards and 21 touchdowns in seven seasons.
