Known to be one of the most electric playmakers in the NFL during his time, Percy Harvin still didn’t have that simple of a path. From an anxiety disorder, to smoking weed before every game, and punching Golden Tate before the Super Bowl, Harvin finally opened up about it all.
Source (YahooSports) – Percy Harvin is notoriously aloof. But he had a candid conversation with Bleacher Report’s Master Tesfatsion published Wednesday where he talked about playing while high and punching Golden Tate before Super Bowl XLVIII.
The enigmatic receiver was one of the NFL’s top talents during his eight seasons in the league, but never delivered on the promise he showed as the offensive Rookie of the Year in 2009.
A big part of what held him back was his locker-room reputation. He was problematic, to put it lightly — notorious for getting into “confrontations” with teammates. The Minnesota Vikings jumped at the chance to get rid of him in 2013 when the Seattle Seahawks offered them a first-round pick.
Two seasons of middling production and locker-room drama later and the Seahawks shipped Harvin to the New York Jets for a late-round draft pick.
Percy Harvin shares how he smoked weed before every game to help with his anxiety disorder/migraines.
