The Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Sid Hartman reports Percy Harvin has informed the Minnesota Vikings that he does not want to play for them anymore 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’s relationship with the Vikings has been much-discussed, including rumors that he isn’t pleased with the coaches’ plans for him on offense and that he does not get along with the medical staff. Quite simply, it seemed as though Harvin wasn’t happy here, and that was made obvious when he didn’t hang around the team during their late-season push toward the playoffs while he rehabbed his ankle.
Don’t expect to see a Harvin trade until closer to the draft in order to give NFL teams a chance to pursue free agent receivers.
