Percy Harvin Requests Trade

Multiple sources have reported that Vikings WR Percy Harvin has requested a trade from the Vikings according to his agent.

Percy Harvin returned to the Minnesota Vikings‘ minicamp on Thursday, a day after he skipped the team’s Wednesday afternoon practice because he is unhappy and has requested a trade.

The Vikings have made it clear though that they will not be looking to trade Harvin at this time

“We drafted Percy Harvin here,” Spielman said. “He’s a key part of our organization. He’s a key part of our football team. Any issues that are out there or reported, we always handle those internally and continue to handle those internally.”

Percy does not want to be with the Vikings and it does not appear to have to do with the money or his current contract

“Fans I said I have issues to be worked out money not at all being the problem…I’ve dne everything asked and more…

This is very delicate situation for the new Vikings upper management. Harvin is considered to be in the upper tier of NFL WR’s and he is

not happy with something. However, at this point we do not know what that something is who that someone may be. Although the Vikings have made it clear that they do not want trade him they may not have a choice. As we have seen time after time NFL players have the ability to force a teams hand when it comes to these type of things. Harvin has put up decent numbers in his time with the Vikings (especially considering all the QB’s he has had). Given the numbers below, if you were the Giants would you try to acquire him?
