It was reported earlier this offseason that Minnesota
Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin was demanding a trade. While these reports
were initially shot down by the team, who said they had no interest dealing the
wide out, Sid Hartman of The Star Tribune reports Harvin has told the team he
doesn’t want to play for them and wants to be traded.
However, the latest word from some good sources around the
NFL is that Harvin, who missed the final seven regular-season games as well as
the playoff game because of a serious ankle injury, has told the Vikings that
he doesn’t want to play for them and wants to be traded.
Harvin has been fantastic when he’s been on the field. The
issue has been he’s dealt with injuries and several off-field problems. Harvin
has had at least two blowups with coaches, Leslie Frazier and former head coach
Beyond this, Hartman reports that Harvin doesn’t like how
Minnesota uses him on offense and doesn’t get along with the team’s medical
staff. Considering the ongoing reports of his interest to be dealt, the possibility
of a trade taking place seems to be growing as the new league year approaches.
