In the eight games he has played with the Jets, Harvin has recorded 29 catches, 350 yards, a touchdown, and 110 rushing yards. These numbers coming with the Vick debacle and an inconsistent Geno Smith. He also has not caused any issues in the locker room, something that was discussed at lengths when the Jets traded for him. Harvin has given the Jets a vertical threat opposite Eric Decker and a return man that other teams fear on kickoffs.
Now, whoever the Jets general manager is next year will probably look at Harvin's injury history and just cut him based on that alone. Harvin has dealt with ankle issues since coming to the Jets and a new injury may keep him out of the final regular season game against the Dolphins. If the Jets do cut him, it puts a lot of pressure on the general manager to add a big time receiver in the first round or sign someone new. Why not just keep Harvin and fill another need in round one, such as edge rusher, quarterback, or offensive tackle. Before cutting anyone, the Jets will have 40 million in cap this offseason, enough to fill needs and extend guys like Muhammad Wilkerson and Damon Harrison. Don't make wide receiver another question mark on this team, keep Percy Harvin in green and white.
