NFL Injury Report:
The Minnesota Vikings are reportedly going to pursue a trade of wide receiver Percy Harvin this offseason, but this wouldn’t happen if
running back Adrian Peterson was in charge. Peterson told Paul Allen of KFAN
yesterday that, if it were up to him, he wouldn’t trade Harvin.
“To be honest with you, I don’t know if we will or not,”
Peterson said. “But me, individually, and giving you my opinion, I wouldn’t
trade him. But that’s just me and my opinion. To do the the things
that he’s able to do, I don’t think there will be a player able to do it better
than him. Ever. He does so much, and there will never be a player
who will do it better than him.”
Peterson also admitted that he hasn’t had much of an
opportunity to speak with Harvin to see what exactly is going on.
Recent trade talk has stemmed from reports of a blowup
between Harvin and coach Leslie Frazier. Harvin has also had run-ins with
former coach Brad Childress, and he’s said he’ll hold out next season if he doesn’t receive a new contract.
While there’s no denying Harvin’s ability when healthy, the
Vikings may opt to part ways with the dynamic wide receiver rather than
continue to put up with his headaches.

“He is a star athlete who is a great player. Is he a volatile guy? Yes. Can he be managed? Yes. For me he is not an issue. You just have to be able to deal and manage star players. I don’t think we should be at the point of being done with him.”
