Percy Harvin has been the subject of a lot of talk around the Minnesota Vikings lately. His future with the team is questionable, and now it looks as though the team will actively seek to trade him.  Sources tell WCCO’s Mike Max that the main reason that Harvin left the team this season was not his injury, but instead it a blowup he had with Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier that caused him to miss the rest of the season. It started in that game at Seattle, where TV cameras caught Harvin waving his arms and screaming at Frazier on the sideline over his frustration with the Vikings’ struggling offense. According to 1500espn.com, the injury to Harvin’s ankle WAS legitimate, but that was just one of many problems. Harvin and Frazier had another heated exchange weeks later in front of some players and staff members, fueling speculation about a deteriorating relationship that could spell the end of Harvin’s four seasons in Minnesota. This isn’t the first time Harvin has had a problem with a head coach, as he had a similar meltdown with former head coach Brad Childress a few years ago. In November 2010, Childress accused Harvin of not giving his best and “dogging it” on another ankle injury and threw him out of practice. The two had to be separated and the altercation carried over to the weight room, where a witness said Harvin hurled a weight in Childress’ direction. Harvin’s injured ankle very likely fueled his frustration, as the injury wasn’t healing as properly and as quickly as he and the staff had hoped.  Harvin played through the pain against Seattle the day he was injured, but he missed the following week’s game against Detroit. Harvin never made it through a full practice again and was placed on IR two weeks later. Sources say teammates were disappointed in Harvin’s actions and the organization has moved toward less tolerance for that behavior. Harvin does have trade value on the market, but if a team is to take a chance on him it is a legitimate risk. They would be trading for a player with a history of ankle injuries, problems in the past with migraines (he once passed out on the practice field due to a reaction to medication) and now a well known history of issues with authority. Harvin is a good wide receiever and could be a dynamic threat on field, but as with many other wide receivers, not only will a team be inheriting his playmaking abilities but it seems as though they’ll inherit his “diva” attitude too.
