Percy Harvin says health is best it's been since before college

Percy Harvin's first season with the Seattle Seahawks was largely a disappointment, as he only played in one regular season game after offseason hip surgery and was sidelined for a playoff game with a concussion. He showed his potential to be an impact player with 137 all-purpose yards in Super Bowl XLVIII, including an 87-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to start the second half of the game.

Harvin has missed 22 of 32 regular season games over the last two seasons, and he's played all 16 games just once in his five NFL seasons. But Harvin feels like those past injury issues are behind him as OTAs get going, and recently said he feels the best he's felt since before college.

The Seahawks lean predominantly on their running game and a stout defense to win games, and their recent success proves that they shouldn't stray too far from that formula. But if Harvin can stay healthy, he is a dynamic and diverse talent that can add a big-play spark for the Seahawks as they look to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
