Morning links: Harvin talks Hawks on Jim Rome Show

Seattle Seahawks Percy Harvin was on The Jim Rome Show on Thursday. Among other things, Harvin discussed making the transition to his new team in Seattle, along with the rumors that he did not get along with his former quarterback in Minnesota, Christian Ponder.

Harvin on Ponder: “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. (We were) on the same page, it’s just a lot of articles that tried to pick up on things that weren’t there.”

On facing Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner every day in practice: “It’s lovely. 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.”
