The Seahawks need a receiver badly, and the Vikings would love to have some insurance in case Christian Ponder craps out. It could be a match made in heaven for both teams. Harvin wants a new contract and is expected to holdout until he gets one, including off-season activities. Matt Flynn became expendable when rookie Russell Wilson burst on the scene and wrestled the starter job away fro Flynn in the preseason. According to Eric Williams of, feels it’s a win-win situation. Williams writes: ‘The 24-year-old Harvin is entering the final year of his rookie deal. He’s an explosive playmaker who has a history with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and receiver Sidney Rice from their time in Minnesota. I think Harvin is the type of explosive playmaker Seattle is looking to add offensively, and could be work the risk of giving up a second-round pick. Harvin’s injury issues could be lessoned by the fact that he would be more of a complementary player for Seattle, and therefore won’t be used as much. And Seattle also has another chip – quarterback Matt Flynn. The Vikings are looking for competition at quarterback, with Joe Webb’s struggles in the playoffs against Green Bay exposing the team’s lack of depth at that position. Flynn could go to Minnesota and compete with Christian Ponder for the starting job, and provide more depth at that position for the Vikings.’   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
  • Lets see. A MVP caliber player for a player that had a record setting meaningless game. Let me find some dog crap a 4th round pick then make the deal. Harvin stays put.
  • I like a trade with Arizona, Percy Harvin for Minnesota native and former Vikings ball boy, All Pro (WR) Larry Fitzgerald better! Matt Flynn would be a good addition to the Vikings roster also!
  • Oh..HELL no! Minnesota has NO CLUE how to bargain and trade. We would end up with a mascot from a bar leaque or an 18th round flag football GIRL before MN was done 'trading'. And for another lemon QB?? Keep Harvin in Minnesota!
  • What?? Matt Flynn, a guy who got beat out by a rookie, and only played well for a game or two when he was in Green Bay? C'mon, quit smoking your crack pipe. Percy is one of the best players in NFL - hands down and if the Vikes can't get equal value through the draft and/or current players then keep him in MN and give him a nook for allthe whining he does.
