Percy Harvin begged Pete Carroll to return a kickoff against his former team

Every chance he got during the week, Percy Harvin got into Pete Carroll’s ear and asked for a chance to not just make his awaited debut in Seattle, but do it both as a wide receiver and a kick returner.

And every time Harvin pleaded, Carroll said no.

With less than a minute left in the first half, Carroll relented and gave Harvin a shot at the kind of game-changing play the Seahawks waited an extra three months to finally see.

“It was something I wanted real bad and not just because I wanted to make a big play, but I’m a kick returner so I wanted to get back there and get a feel for the kick returning again,” Harvin said. “It was a chance to make a big play and he came to me and I was able to make it.”

Harvin’s 58-yard kickoff return late in the first half set up Russell Wilson’s 19-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin with 10 seconds left in the second quarter, and the Seahawks rolled to their franchise-record 13th straight home win.

Seahawks fans you have a true weapon in Percy Harvin, it will help you get deep in the playoffs.
