Seahawks won't reshuffle offense to accommodate Harvin

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has warned Percy Harvin that he won't change his offense to accommodate him, even after his impressive performance in the weekend's 41-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

According to, the 25-year-old wide receiver finished Sunday's game with a 17-yard reception, and set up a touchdown drive with a 58-yard kickoff return, to mark a strong debut for the NFC West franchise.

Of the 20 snaps he played out of 54 against the Vikings, Harvin might have hoped he'd done enough to force his way into the roster, but whilst Carroll admits the playmaker's role will increase as the season progresses, he shouldn't expect anything other than normal rotation come Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints.

"We don't have to hold back and count plays and stuff like that," Carroll was quoted saying by ProFootballTalk. "He won't play every play; we're going to still rotate our guys. We're not changing the offense.

"I told Percy that the first night I talked to him. I told him we're not going to change because you're coming to our team, we're just going to add you in and hope you can be a factor to help us, which he's going to be."

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has already utilised Harvin as an offensive outlet, after starting kick returner Jermaine Kearse was withdrawn in the first quarter with concussion against the Vikings on Sunday.
