Harvin is dynamic but there's a huge question mark regarding his ability to stay healthy and happy. You don't give a guy 10+ mil a year and big draft picks if he's a questionable character guy with injury concerns. And I think the injury concerns will always be there. He's a small guy who looks to take contact. Eventually Patrick Willis is going to hurt him really bad.
No question Percy cost a pretty penny!
But, I guess I'll have to trust John and Pete to have structured his contract in a way that considers future cap consideration (I've heard it's heavily front-loaded).
I would think that most of the players the Hawks are currently paying anything significant to (Lynch, Rice, Miller to name a few) will be gone before it's time to give RW, et al their big pay day.
