Vikes looking to offload Wide Receiver for a 2013 draft pick.
Before his injury in November halted his MVP-calibre season, Percy Harvin was a playmaking force in a resurgent Vikings team and was a big part in the early stages of their playoff season.
However, after being put in the injured reserved list with an ankle injury, which was not warranted according to league sources, he has barely spoken to club officials.
The player has been known for arguing with head coaches in the past and his current boss Leslie Frazier was no exception, which may also have been a reason behind the possible trade.
The final nail in the coffin seemed to be when he was left out of their 2013 season sticket promotions, which all but spelt the end for Harvin and his time with the club.
There are a number of suitors that could be interested in Harvin, and they could get him for as low as a 3rd Round pick in the upcoming draft, which would be a steal considering his elite talents in the receiving and return games.
The New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars are all in the market to upgrade at the receiver position, and the Vikings seem to be in a position where they could be on the right end of a bidding war.
With the lure of Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots too strong, Harvin will likely make the jump to the perennial Superbowl contenders, as well as instantly upgrading as receiving corps which has never been considered a big threat in the NFL, despite having the league’s best QB in Tom Brady.
