Vikings to try to trade WR Percy Harvin

Quote:
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) Sources tell WCCOs Mike Max that the No. 1 reason Percy Harvin left the team this season was not his injury, but it was motivated by a blowup he had with Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier.

Multiple sources tell Max that Harvin had an embarrassing tirade directed toward Frasier, disrespecting the coach during the season when Harvin was sidelined with an injured ankle


Teammates were present, and Max was told that is when Harvin left the team and was put on injured reserve.

Sources say teammates were disappointed in Harvins actions and the organization has moved toward less tolerance for that behavior.

Harvin apparently had a similar incident when Childress coached the team.

The Vikings will try to trade him, Max reports, as Harvin does have market value.

Re: Vikings to try to trade WR Percy Harvin

Good player with a great set of skills, but this doesn't surprise me. Not exactly a high character guy, part of the reason he dropped to the Vikings in the first place. Didn't he "demand" a trade last offseason? Might as well get rid of him, but good lord do the Vikings need receivers even if they do keep Harvin.

The Patriots adding Percy Harvin would be quite the addition. Bring in Danny Amendola to replace Welker for a fraction of the cost and make a trade for Harvin.

Aside from the obvious on the field fit, how many college teammates does he already have on that team? Hernandez, Cunningham and Spikes off the top of my head. Makes a lot of sense, it'll be interesting to see what Harvin's value is.

Yep. Belichick loves those Urban Meyer players.


They also have Jeff Demps stashed after signing him post Olympics.

In Percy Harvin trade talks, would expect #Vikings to ask for at least a 2nd-round pick & change:

Harvin and Tebow to the Pats. Lock it up.

Re: Vikings to try to trade WR Percy Harvin

Five potential landing spots for Percy Harvin

Quote:
1. New England Patriots: With both Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd potentially moving on, the Patriots could be on track for a facelift at wide receiver. Bill Belichick is reportedly a big admirer of Harvin, and Harvin certainly has the type of versatility that Belichick covets. The Patriots aren't known to shell out big money for wideouts, but that doesn't mean they won't.

2. San Francisco 49ers: Michael Crabtree's emergence was a huge lift for Jim Harbaugh, but the Niners are still looking for consistency at wide receiver. Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams are coming off serious knee injuries and Randy Moss is unlikely to return. The Niners don't have a ton of cap room to play with, but they could get creative to land a player who could serve as the final piece of the puzzle.

3. Miami Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill certainly deserves a better class of wide receiver, and general manager Jeff Ireland made it clear last month he will aggressively search the market for playmakers to put around his young quarterback. Harvin would instantly slide in as the Dolphins' No. 1 wideout and they should have the funds to get an extension done. The team's decision on free agent left tackle Jake Long will play a role here.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Shad Khan is intent on bringing excitement to the NFL's most moribund franchise, and Harvin is on the short list of the game's most electric talents. Given the Jaguars' dearth of talent -- and the team's wavering faith in Blaine Gabbert -- it makes complete sense for new general manager Dave Caldwell to kick the tires on Harvin. If Justin Blackmon puts it together, that's a mean 1-2.

5. Cleveland Browns: The good people of Cleveland deserve a dynamic star they can call their own. Seriously, can you name one since the Browns came back into the league in 1999? The Browns should have ample cap space to extend Harvin, who would team with Josh Gordon and Greg Little to form a rock-solid group of young wideouts. Throw Trent Richardson into that mix at running back, and the Browns -- at long last -- might be onto something.

I don't think Harvin can play defense

Alex Smith for Percy Harvin seems to be the rumor and most likely scenario. Obviously other stuff will be involved

Per rotoworld:

Quote:
An NFL executive tells NFL.com's Ian Rapoport he would be "shocked" if the Vikings netted better than a third-round pick for Percy Harvin.

Re: Vikings to try to trade WR Percy Harvin

If the asking price is a 3rd and a 5th and like 10.5 mill per season I drop SJ and let Amendola walk if I'm the Rams.

Haven't seen a punt or kick returned since something like 2003.

It won't happen though.
