With Percy Harvin having been traded to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, the Minnesota Vikings now have a glaring hole on offense. Adrian Peterson defied medical science by putting together an incredible season in 2012, but one could argue that he would not have had as much room to run if not for Harvin. Now, the Vikings will need to find a way to replace one of the most dynamic players in the NFL. Their offense has undoubtedly taken a step back for the time being, and a tweet from Peterson after the trade on Monday indicated that he is well aware of that. The best all around player I ever seen or you’ll ever see! Goes to Seattle! I feel like I just got kicked in the stomach. Several times!!! — Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) March 11, 2013 There has already been speculation that Minnesota will look to add a big-ticket free agent like Mike Wallace or Greg Jennings, but the team’s offense will have a much different look next year regardless of who they bring in. Not to mention, they will have to fill the void that is left by Harvin’s departure on special teams. Peterson had some tremendous compliments for Harvin during the 2012 season, so its easy to understand why he’s sad to see him go. Such is life in the NFL, and the only thing AP can do is move on and keep doing what he has been doing.
