According to Mike Max of WCCO, the Minnesota Vikings will try to work out a trade for WR Percy Harvin  at some point during the offseason. “Multiple sources” have informed Max that Minnesota’s decision to place Harvin on season-ending injured reserve stems from a ”blowup” he had with head coach Leslie Frazier. Minnesota announced that the move was made because of ankle injury that Harvin was dealing with, but Max’s sources say otherwise. The Vikings are reportedly tying to quell such behavior from happening again and the report adds that Harvin’s teammates were “disappointed” in his actions. There’s been talk dating back to last offseason that Harvin could be available given that he’s entering the final year of his deal and has had numerous issues with Vikings in recent years. If this is indeed the case, it probably makes sense to see what they can get for him now versus dealing with issues that could come from applying the franchise tag to him next year. By then, his trade value would be less that it currently is, considering that he’ll require a long-term contract on top of the draft pick compensation. Trading for Harvin now assures teams that they’ll have him in under contract for a very reasonable $2.9 million salary in 2013, while affording them the ability work on a contract extension before the start of the season. We’ll have to see what comes of this situation, but there’s at least a decent enough chance Harvin could be playing elsewhere in the coming months.   The post Report: Vikings Will Attempt To Trade WR Percy Harvin appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
