According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, a high-ranking Vikings source informed her that WR Percy Harvin is targeting a deal similar to that of Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. Johnson received an eight year deal worth $132 million and includes $60 million guaranteed while Fitzgerald signed an eight-year deal that totaled $128.5 million and included $50 million guarantees back in 2011. “[Harvin] is a star player in our league, but I would imagine that he sees himself in the class of the top wide receivers in our league,” the source said. “I do know at his production, when he was healthy, he was producing along with Larry and Calvin and those guys. I could see Harvin’s agent making the argument that he deserves their type of pay.“ Pro Football Talk reported that Harvin was unlikely to report to training camp without a new contract. “As far as holding out, that’s not something that I’ve heard he definitely will do at this point,” said the source. “But I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re throwing out threats — that’s what agents do. However, when you are under contract, the team controls the situation, not the player. I hope he doesn’t think a tactic like that would work if that’s what he’s thinking.“ Reports earlier in the week indicated that the Vikings could be looking to trade Harvin in the next few weeks. Minnesota will reportedly meet with Harvin at next week’s NFL Combine. Harvin, 24, is in the final year of his rookie contract and is set to make $2.9 million next season. There’s almost no way he plays for that amount of money, so an offseason holdout seems very likely.
