When the Seahawks traded receiver Percy Harvin to the Jets late last week for a conditional draft pick, one major reason why was because Harvin pulled himself from the Cowboys game last week and refused to reenter the contest as Seattle tried to make its comeback.

That reportedly wasn't the first time Harvin tried that approach this season.

According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, Harvin also pulled himself from the Chargers game in Week 2 (a Seahawks loss) and did the same in a preseason game when he saw safety Earl Thomas getting reps at punt returner.

So, if you're keeping track, that's three times Harvin reportedly refused to enter a game this season because he was upset about his playing time or the touches he was getting on offense.

Glazer said officials in the Seahawks organization were "walking around on egg shells" around Harvin, and he said the team reached out to the Browns to talk about a trade for tight end Jordan Cameron after the Chargers game. That swap obviously never happened.

As for whether Seattle general manager John Schneider fooled Jets general manager John Idzik, Glazer said Schneider was completely open with Harvin's issues with Idzik, who worked with Schneider previously in Seattle.
