Percy Harvin -- remember him? -- wasn’t expected to make his debut with the Seattle Seahawks until the last week of November.
But the speedy slot receiver is slated to begin practising with his new team next week, according to NFL Network.
An early return by Harvin -- following hip surgery in August -- would be a huge boon to the Seahawks offence.
Arguably the team’s top off-season acquisition (and that’s saying something), Harvin was expected to provide quarterback Russell Wilson with a dynamic receiving target.
The Seahawks still could sorely use him.
The former Minnesota Viking has been running and is “getting really close,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday.
