There has been plenty of talk of what the Minnesota Vikings are going to do with receiver Percy Harvin. However, Harvin has a little bit to say in the matter and according to league sources; he will stay away from all off-season activities, making it harder for the Vikings to trade him. According to Mike Florio of profootballtalk.com, Harvin asked for a trade last year in an attempt to have his contract redone. However, the Vikings did not accommodate Harvin, but heading into the final year of his original rookie deal, Harvin wants to get paid. Florio writes: ‘Last year, when Harvin asked for a trade, he wasn’t unhappy with his financial situation.  But he then viewed 2012 as a contract year.  Which means that, even with one year left on his rookie deal, Harvin wants a new contract. And he could be preparing to take a stand in order to get it.  Per a league source, Harvin currently is expected to stay away from off-season workouts and training camp absent a new deal. He’s due to make $2.9 million in 2013.  It’s unclear what he wants, but high-end wideouts earn at or about eight figures annually. And while it’s also unclear whether Harvin wants to stay in Minnesota, whether the Vikings will pay him what he wants surely has a lot to do with whether he’ll want to stay.’ var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
