Percy Harvin needs to clean up his act, says Jets' Michael Vick

New York Jets made the brave decision to trade for Percy Harvin last Friday in what has been seen in some quarters as a coup for the Jets.

Gang Green have given up a sixth round pick for the troublemaking gamebreaker. Whether or not it will be a good decision for the Jets remains to be seen, but if back-up quarterback Michael Vick has anything to say about it, Harvin will curb his heavily documented troublemaking ways with the Jets after an acrimonious exit from the Seattle Seahawks.

Vick warns Harvin

That's right. Not only has convicted dog abuser Michael Vick become a mentor for Jets' starting quarterback Geno Smith, he is now putting himself in charge of discipline at the Jets.

Percy Harvin comes to the Jets with a poor reputation, but rather than pretend Harvin's previous record is all just a bunch of misunderstandings, Vick took aim at the playmaker as he issued a warning ahead of his first game for the Jets this weekend.

Harvin won't be a monster 

“He won’t be a monster here,” Vick told The New York Post. “He won’t be a monster here. I can assure all the fans of that … That won’t take place here.”

When Vick says 'he won't be a monster here' what he means is that Harvin will not bring his disruptive nature to the Jets.

Harvin has been alleged of a lot of things in the last week, with the most damaging being an alleged attack he instigated on former Seahawks' teammate Golden Tate before Seattle's Super Bowl XLVIII win in February.

Harvin allegedly gave Tate a black eye in the altercation, but Vick insists that the star receiver will not be acting up like that while he's at the Jets.
