There were a lot in Seattle who weren't getting along with Percy Harvin before he was traded on Friday, but at least one player was getting along with Harvin and that player wasn't happy when the Seahawks sent Harvin to New York on Friday

The player in question? Marshawn Lynch

According to the New York Daily News, Lynch 'went off' after hearing of the trade on Friday. The trade went down just before the Seahawks were headed for the airport and Lynch was so upset, he almost didn't get on the team bus that was taking the team to the airport. 

The Seahawks flew to St. Louis on Friday for Sunday's 1 p.m. ET game against the Rams

Going off on his team wasn't Lynch's only reaction to the trade. The Seahawks running back also took to Twitter on Friday to express his displeasure. The tweet, which you can see here, got retweeted over 21,000 times over the weekend.

Clearly, Lynch was one of of the few players who got along with Harvin. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday that Harvin wasn't clicking with quarterback Russell Wilson, which is a surprise, but only because Wilson seems like a guy who can click with anyone. 

Former Seahawks fullback also confirmed that Harvin gave Golden Tate a black eye the night before Super Bowl XLVIII. 

Even if Lynch is slightly unhappy with the move, the Harvin trade seems like a textbook case of addition by subtraction for the Seahawks.
