Russell Wilson went on the offensive Thursday when asked about the Seahawks' trade of Percy Harvin, and the alleged locker room drama that may have forced the hand of the Seattle front office.
"Percy and I never had differences. He's a guy, ya know -- we had similarities, probably, if anything," Wilson told reporters after practice on Thursday.
The Seahawks' quarterback then proceded to point the finger at the media for creating or overstating what actually happened.
"I’m not sure why the media tries to blow everything out of proportion, it’s part of it, I guess," Wilson said. "You have to deal with it. But you also ignore it, too. Like I always tell you guys, ignore the noise.
"I don't read any of y'alls articles, no offense. I just stay away from it all."
Reports emerged shortly after the trade, citing physical altercations and tension in the Seahawks locker room -- including a possible divide between Wilson and Harvin.
With Wilson being the face of the franchise, if he were at all at odds with Harvin, it's not difficult to imagine the Super Bowl winning quarterback having some influence.
But Wilson downplayed the tension altogether.
"There's no division in our locker room," Wilson reiterated. "There's none at all. If anything, I think we've continued to build and continued to grow. I truly believe that."
