Seahawks’ Percy Harvin on potential suspension: ‘We’re going to do what we gotta do’
Seahawks tight end Percy Harwin told reporters Friday that he’s prepared to accept a one-game suspension if he receives a positive test for marijuana, according to the Seattle Times.
“We’re still trying to figure out exactly what’s going to happen.
I’m not going to get into details right now.
I can’t talk about it.
I’ll just say that I’ll accept that suspension,” Harwin said.
“But I’m going to keep working to make sure that I stay on top of it and stay ready to do everything that I can to help this team win.”
Seahawks tight ends coach Chris Chandler also said Friday that Harwin and the team will keep an eye on the situation, according the Times.
Harwin will not be suspended for the game against the Bears on Sunday, according a source informed of the situation.
Harvin was suspended for five games in 2015 for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and received a two-game, $7,500 fine for the violation.
He was released in February, and was reinstated in August.
Harvins suspension in 2016 led to the end of the team’s winning streak in the NFC West, which had included a season-high seven consecutive wins in 2017.
Seattle is in the middle of a four-game losing streak in 2017 and has dropped nine of 10 games this season.
Harlin has played in just three games in 2017, but he’s averaging 10.5 catches per game and nine.3 yards per catch in the Seahawks’ four-team division.
