NFL Injury Report:
The Minnesota Vikings will attempt to trade wide receiver
Percy Harvin this offseason following an “embarrassing tirade” directed at head
coach Leslie Frazier, according to Mike Max of CBS Minnesota.
Harvin left the Vikings last season, and many believed this
was mainly due to the wide receiver’s injury. However, Harvin’s exit had more to do with his blowup with Frazier than it did with his injury.
This tirade came during the season when Harvin was sidelined
due to an injured ankle. It was done in front of teammates, who were disappointed
in the wide receiver’s actions. After this, Harvin was placed on injured reserve.
In a move toward less tolerance for that type of behavior,
the team will attempt to trade Harvin. The wide receiver had a similar outburst
involving former head coach Brad Childress.
Despite these reports, there should still be interest in
Harvin as he showed his dynamic playmaking abilities last season when healthy.
The 24-year-old caught 62 passes for 677 yards and three touchdowns over nine

Maybe not Juan…
After an apparent blow up with Leslie Frazier this season, the Vikings are reportedly ready to part ways with the extremely talented-oft injured WR. The guy is one of the most talented offensive players in the league, so this must run deep in the locker room if the Vikings are willing to part with a position where they are weakest.
GM Chris Spielman: “I’m...
The Minnesota Vikings are reportedly going to pursue a trade of wide receiver Percy Harvin this offseason, but this wouldn’t happen if

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...
