Jets may rework Percy Harvin contract

INDIANAPOLIS --  The New York Jets are considering reworking wide receiver Percy Harvin's contract. They'll need to do so since he's due $10.5 million this season. If he's on the roster March 19, the Seattle Seahawks also get a fourth-round pick from his October trade. If they cut him, they don't owe him the $10.5 million and the Jets are only required to give the Seahawks a sixth-round pick. “That’s a process we’re working through, we’re going to talk to his agent,” Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said. “We do think Percy is a very good player, but that’s a process we’re working through right now.” It's unclear if Harvin would be open to a restructured deal, though. He didn't have a great season, catching 29 passes for 350 yards and one touchdown in eight games last season. “You have to look at different options you can do whether you carry him at his current contract, whether you try to restructure him for a more cap-friendly number,” Maccagnan said. The Jets are also hoping to sign defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson to a new deal. “I don’t want to put a timetable on that. I think that’s something that’s on our list of things to do,” Maccagnan said.  "I would definitely say Muhammad is a player we like. We’ll see how this process unfolds.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
