is heading out of the NFC North and - judging by fan reactions on my Twitter account (@ttwentyman
) - Detroit Lions fans don't seem too broken up about seeing the talented young receiver and return man go.
The Minnesota Vikings agreed to trade Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, which was first reported by ESPN.
The trade is expected to include the Seahawks' first-round draft choice this year and is contingent on Harvin agreeing to a new contract, which is expected to be finalized in the next 48 hours, per the report.
Harvin led the Vikings in receptions (62) and receiving yards (677) in 2012, despite playing in only nine games.
One of those games was against the Lions in Week 4, when he opened the game with a 105-yard kickoff return touchdown.
In seven career games vs. the Lions, Harvin recorded 48 catches for 363 yards and three scores. He also rushed 16 times for 123 yards (7.7 ypc) and averaged 34.8 yards per kickoff return on 10 attempts with one touchdown.
The 24-year-old Harvin has 7,168 all-purpose yards in his career with 29 touchdowns (20 receiving, five return, four rushing).
