Found March 08, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Minnesota Vikings are reportedly one of the leading suitors for former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace, and his addition could mean the team ultimately parts ways with dynamic playmaker Percy Harvin. There have been multiple documented issues between the Vikings and Harvin. He’s had several blowups with coaches, and Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports the wide receiver threatened to walk out on the team last season. There’s no questioning Harvin’s talent, as he showed flashes of greatness last season. However, he’s entering the final year of his contract and has proven a significant injury risk throughout his young career. Rather than provide Harvin the mega-contract he seeks, the Vikings could elect to sign Wallace, another wide receiver known for his big-play ability. If they were to add Wallace, Minnesota could then attempt to trade Harvin this offseason.
