Minnesota Vikings: Percy Harvin Could Be Traded
 
Percy Harvin’s first four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings has been great, yet highly complicated. He’s often dubbed the name “wide re-diva,” although his actions could be justified.

Harvin has expressed his frustration in the past and even threatened to skip training camp last year. “Just haven’t been happy lately,” Harvin said of his situation in Minnesota. But he didn’t go into specifics. The Vikings’ star receiver has had several “verbal exchanges” with head coach Leslie Frazier and even reportedly requested a trade. Not to mention, after being placed on injured reserve December 5th for a severely sprained left ankle – Harvin packed up and never returned to Minnesota’s facility. Instead, Harvin decided to rehab at his home in Florida. Coach Frazier and Harvin did not communicate often during the Vikings playoff-push.

Report: Vikings looking to trade Harvin


Local news report says team sources claim that the Vikings are looking to trade Percy Harvin following a blow-up with head coach Leslie Frazier. The incident was credited for why Harvin was placed on injured reserve and why the Vikings are looking to trade Harvin.

Mike Max of WCCO Radio reported this weekend that the Vikings are actively pursuing a trade for wide receiver Percy Harvin.

According to the report, the reason the Vikings put Harvin on injured reserve while he was healing from an ankle injury was related to a meltdown Harvin had that was directed toward head coach Leslie Frazier in the presence of several players.

Sources said that teammates didn’t take well to Harvin’s blow-up at Frazier, which was similar to an episode Harvin had with former head coach Brad Childress. As a result, the report claims, the Vikings are looking to trade Harvin while his trade value is high.

Harvin is under contract for one more season and there has been speculation that, if the Vikings were looking to trade Harvin, any potential trade would likely have to come prior to this year’s draft.

All Texans fans should start a chain mass email to Rick Smith to ask him to get this done. Harvin can be #2 now and future #1 after AJ is gone.

Last offseason when Harvin was rumored to be on the block I suggested the Texans trade for Harvi and most people on the MB said no he wouldn't be worth a 1st rd pick.

I wonder how those people feel about Harvin after an MVP type season? I would rather cut all of the Texans FA's except Quin if it meant adding Harvin.

So what he is a diva as long as he can get the job done on the field thats all I care about. Its not like he was accused of double homicide.

This is exactly the player the Texans need. A difference maker. A speed burner. Somebody to stretch the field. He's got some diva qualities but the texans window of a super bowl run is closing with Andre getting older and not knowing what the future holds at our QB situation.

We don't have a QB that will be able to throw to Percy Harvin in stride. You can have all the speedsters in the world, but there needs to be a QB who can throw to them.

Here we go again. Matt Schaub is not Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, or even Joe Flacco. But he isn't Chrisitan Ponder either. And Harvin did quite well with that guy. I think Percy can do pretty well here in Houston.

Trade A.J. since Matt doesn't have a really strong arm!
(Yes, it sounds even stupider to me than it probably does to you.)

Wow. MT @SteveBateman99: Talk in Minnesota says Percy Harvin can leave for a 2nd and 4th round pick.

How's his run blocking?

Talk in Minnesota says Percy Harvin can leave for a 2nd and 4th round pick. Will earn $4.02M in 2013 - that's about realistic for the #Jets.

Sounds like a Wes Welker replacement if I ever heard one.

Texans are not going to make a move for Harvin. Not the type of move this F.O. is known for.

TexanCR 02-10-2013 07:28 PM

Re: Minnesota Vikings: Percy Harvin Could Be Traded
 
The problem with Harvin is not that MIN will request a 2nd and a 4th (which I will give in a heartbeat for him) is that Percy will want a huge contract.

We are not going to give two picks for a 1 year player. It hurts to see such a good player available to get but we can't because of Rick Smith ineptitude handling the cap.

:kubepalm:

Harvin isnt just a speedster. He creates after the catch and would help greatly even with schaubs arm...(except when he's hurt.)

2 and a 4? Do it now.

Report: Vikings will actively pursue Percy Harvin trade

Percy Harvin is mysteriously missing from the Minnesota Vikings' 2013 promotional season ticket poster. Pressed about the talented but volatile receiver's future with the team entering a contract season, general manager Rick Spielman recently played it coy while hinting that there are aspects of the receiver's behavior that aren't easy to love.

Sources tell Mike Max of WCCO in Minneapolis that Spielman will indeed actively pursue a Harvin trade on the heels of a November meltdown directed at head coach Leslie Frazier. The incident happened in front of teammates, who didn't take well to Harvin's tirade just a couple of years after a similar blowup directed at former coach Brad Childress. It was also believed to be the real reason that Harvin was unexpectedly placed on injured reserve with an ankle ailment that didn't require surgery.

While local beat writers have speculated that Harvin would go on the trade block this offseason, it's worth noting that none has backed Max's report of irreconcilable differences.

Any team dealing for Harvin will have to pony up for an extension, likely more than $10 million per season. Considering his baggage, an NFL personnel man estimated that Harvin would fetch just a second- or third-round pick in return. One writer covering the Vikings bets the New England Patriots will go after Harvin, as head coach Bill Belichick "loves" the league's premier slot receiver.

I'd give up a first and fourth. A 2nd and 4th? No brainer.

I can see him wearing a NE uniform next season, he will be the perfect replacement for Wes Welker, if they let him walk.

More dominance for NE...but don't worry we have Kevin Walter.
