Percy Harvin has pin pointed the immaturity of Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin as the reason why he had problems during his time with the Seattle Seahawks.
The Buffalo Bills wide receiver has said when all three of them were at the NFC West team, the immaturity on the part of Baldwin and Tate was the reason why problems occurred.
Harvin said to The Buffalo News: “It was a constant thing. It was something that got under my skin. I felt like they were acting like kids.”

Tate and Baldwin apparently started moaning once Harvin was given a lucrative contract, and they also complained when he was being targeted on passes that otherwise would have gone to either of them.
The fact Harvin is now at his fourth different team since joining the league in 2009 shows Seattle wasn’t the only place people had problems with him. Harvin has played for the Minnesota Vikings, Seahawks, and the New York Jets before moving to Buffalo.
He said on Tate and Baldwin: “We all played the same position. So me coming in took reps from them. They wanted to show they were already established having made it to the NFC Championship the year before I got there. So they kind of had the approach of, ‘We don’t need anybody else. We’re established.’”
He only has a one-year contract with the Bills, meaning if he doesn’t settle in and make friends at Buffalo, he could be at another team before the start of the 2016 season.
