Wide receiver Percy Harvin was suddenly traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the New York Jets on Friday afternoon, and now details regarding why are starting come out.
According to multiple reports, Harvin was toxic in the locker room, and even engaged in fights with teammates on at least two separate occasions:

Fighting is no way to unite a locker room, and clearly the Seahawks felt Harvin's contributions on the field did not outweigh the damage he was doing off of it.
The sixth-year player also refused to re-enter the game vs. the Dallas Cowboys, in which the Seahawks lost 30-23, according to the Seattle Times.

Harvin's short-lived career in Seattle will be viewed as unsuccessful from a statistical standpoint.
Outside his Super Bowl kickoff return vs. the Denver Broncos, the explosive wideout never found the end zone in the mere six regular season games he played in.
The Seahawks spent roughly $18.4 million on Harvin. The Jets receiver is still due $41.5 million over the next four years, $7.2 million of which will count against Seattle's salary cap next season.
