Michael Robinson Confirms Percy Harvin/Golden Tate Fight, Says He Broke It Up

It came as a shock when Seattle traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets for a conditional draft pick, but it became clear pretty quickly how much of a problem he was in the Seahawks locker room.

The strongest indication came from a reported fight between Harvin and fellow wide receiver Golden Tate before the Super Bowl, which was so violent many feared Harvin had seriously injured Tate.

Former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson, who was on that Super Bowl team, confirmed the fight, saying he was the one who broke it up.

"Something did go on at the Super Bowl that a lot of fans don't know about," Robinson told NFL GameDay First. "There was an altercation in the locker room between Percy Harvin and Golden Tate. It saddens me because I was a leader on that team and to know that this information got out -- usually Pete Carroll-coached teams, this type of thing stays in-house. There was an issue, I physically broke it up...I talked to Percy and Golden and they ironed their situation out. But again, you've been in locker rooms, these type of things happen all the time. Families fight. That is what is so disturbing. Again, this type of information usually doesn't get out of that locker room. Why it comes out now, almost a year after the Super Bowl is mind-boggling."

Now it's clear that there definitely were serious issues between Harvin and the Seahawks, explaining their sudden eagerness to get rid of the talented wide out.
