Although NFL.com has Mike Wallace and Reggie Bush potentially going to the Bengals, there is now another potential #2, or slot receiver coming available on the market, Percy Harvin. Apparently there was a blow up in November between Harvin and Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier in front of teammates. The Vikings did not take too kindly to this since a similar incident took place that included Harvin and former head coach, Brad Childress.
Either way, what are the odds he ends up in Cincinnati? Do the Bengals even want a guy like him with all this excess baggage wanting a contract extension?
Harvin has earned a reputation as a dependable receiver and a dynamic kickoff return man. He has amassed 3,302 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns in four years with Minnesota. More impressively, he has totaled 3,183 kickoff return yards and 5 touchdowns. Longest touchdowns include 105 yards, 104, yards and 101 yards. He also averaged 27.9 yards per kick return, which, if anything, helps win the all important stat of starting field position.
