The Seahawks get much less for Harvin than they gave for him.

Initially the details of the trade between the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Jets that sent Harvin to the East Coast were unclear, and are still a little but murky. However, a much clearer picture has emerged.
The trade will be for a conditional pick that is currently slated to be in the fourth round, but could rise as high as the second round, based on certain incentives. At this point it’s not clear exactly what those incentives are, but they’re presumably tied to Harvin’s playing time, his stats, or whether he’s still on the Jets at the time of next year’s draft.
Harvin was the 2009 Offensive Rookie of the Year for the Minnesota Vikings. That same year the Jets traded up to draft QB Mark Sanchez. Both teams went to the conference championship game that year but both teams lost.
In 2013 the Seahawks traded for Harvin, but injuries kept him off the field until late in the season. Harvin had several key plays in Supebowl XLVIII in their win over the Denver Broncos.
UPDATE: Ian Rapoport reported that the trade will reportedly be for a 6th round pick with the potential to become a 4th round pick.
