Percy Harvin Talks With Jim Rome About Ponder, Wilson
Seattle’s Percy Harvin said a Yahoo Sports report about his relationship with Christian Ponder during their time in Minnesota was not accurate. The Seahawks wideout told Jim Rome on his radio program he’s never had a problem with the quarterback.
“That was false,” said Harvin who was traded to Seattle in March. “Me and Christian had a great time together. I respect him a whole heck of a lot.”
“I never had a problem with him; I’ve never stated I had a problem with him. I’ve never seen a problem he’s had with me; he’s never said he’s had a problem with me,” Harvin continued. “[We were] on the same page, it’s just a lot of articles that tried to pick up on things that weren’t there.”
As for the quarterback in Seattle, Russell Wilson, Harvin said he’s very impressed with what he’s seen so far.
“Big arm; he’s very, very sharp,” said Harvin. “A big leader. I think that’s his biggest quality, being a leader out there.”
The 2009 Pro Bowler is also enjoying the competitive nature coach Pete Carroll has created in Seattle. Harvin told Rome he’s embraced the challenges of going up against the teams bigger corners in practice, especially Richard Sherman.
“It’s lovely,” said Harvin of his battles with the 6′ 3″ 195 pound Sherman. “I always said I wanted to get better going against lengthy defenders with longer arms, they tend to give me the most problems. So, when I got the trade here, going against these guys every day, has been a blessing in disguise.”
