The Seahawks apparently traded Percy Harvin in large part because he became a problem in the locker room. But trading him may cause problems in the locker room.
Seahawks running back Marshawyn Lynch, a friend of Harvin’s, indicated on Twitter that he wasn’t happy about it, and according to one report, Lynch’s feelings go beyond just “unhappy.” Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Lynch almost didn’t get on the team bus for the trip to the airport for Sunday’s game at St. Louis because he was so upset about Harvin getting traded.
As long as Lynch comes to his senses and continues to play, it should be good news for Lynch owners. As the story points out, Lynch should be a beneficiary of Harvin leaving, as losing Harvin makes Lynch a more integral part of the Seahawks’ offense. But Lynch isn’t an easy person to keep happy, and his personal friendship with Harvin apparently trumps any benefit of getting the ball more, the story continued. It looks like Lynch will be ready to go this week but you may want to follow this story if you're a Lynch owner.
