Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says Percy Harvin’s ‘the best he’s been’

“Big Balls Pete” could use Harvin.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll expects wide receiver Percy Harvin to soon “really jump back into it.”

The 25-year-old Harvin underwent the knife to fix a tear in his hip labrum on August 1 and was placed on the reserve/PUP list later that month.

Acquired from the Minnesota Vikings in March, Harvin will likely rejoin game action when the New Orleans Saints visit Seattle on December 2.

“Percy’s the best he’s been,” said Carroll, 62, who earned the 2003 Home Depot National Coach of the Year award at USC and is 66-55 leading three NFL organizations.

“He’ll return to practice, hopefully, next week, and we’ll just go one day at a time then. All of the signs are really encouraging. He feels good and he’s not having any issues after he works out. I don’t know what that means in terms of playing next week. But, we’re hoping he’ll be able to get some extra work and really jump back into it.”

The 2009 Offensive Rookie of the Year was obtained to immediately complement dynamic playmakers Russell Wilson, Sidney Rice, Golden Tate and Marshawn Lynch on the gridiron.

An elite athlete with great versatility, Harvin is an explosive threat on multiple fronts when content and ready to perform.

However, Harvin’s also brittle, fond of reefer and often moody.

Fortunately for Seahawks fans, Carroll will surely find a way to relate to Harvin and motivate the former Gator.

Plus, Harvin is bound to enjoy working alongside Wilson.

Meanwhile, despite lacking their newest weapon and losing Rice, the Seahawks are 8-1 and fielding the NFL’s 10th most potent attack.

Backed by the league’s third preeminent defense, Seattle is a powerhouse that has eclipsed the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West.

With Percy Harvin nearing a return, “all of the signs” indicate that Seattle’s destined for a February trip to the swamps of Jersey.
