Even if you extend him, that big cap hit wouldn't come until next season right?
If that is correct, there are other things that can be done between that time to make sure he fits under the cap...
Depends on the deal. Harvin wants to get paid now. If we extend him, it will be with a bonus. Depending on the amount of the bonus, the length of his contract, & his 2013 salary his cap hit for 2013 can be $10M
If he's looking for $5M-$8M/yr, I think it would be possible to structure it so that he has a $3M-$5M 2013 cap hit & even that will be a chore for the Texans to get under the cap.
