RENTON, Wash. (AP) — When Seattle made the move to acquire Percy Harvin, there were understandably questions raised by the rest of the Seahawks receivers.
Anytime a move that significant is made, there is bound to be a trickle-down that impacts others.
Doug Baldwin initially had those thoughts. But with Harvin now being slowed by a hip injury, the roles for Baldwin and fellow receiver Golden Tate could be changing or even expanding from what they were originally going to be.
Harvin’s addition was expected to add another dynamic element to an already potent offense that averaged 32.9 points the final nine games of last season. While Harvin has rare skills, Tate and Baldwin both possess some of those same attributes to fill in if Harvin is out for an extended period.
