Percy Harvin - traded to Seahawks

Questions continue to loom about Harvin's future as a Viking

Last year, around this time, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier kept hearing about Percy Harvin.

First, while coaching the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., and later at the 2012 NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Frazier was repeatedly approached by opposing coaches, who in casual conversation just kept mentioning how much of a headache it was to defend Harvin.

The energetic slot receiver was just so slippery, so dynamic, so explosive.

The more Frazier heard from peers and foes about the stress Harvin could cause an opposing defense, the more he realized Harvin had to become an even bigger cog in the Vikings’ attack. And so plans were tweaked, Harvin’s role was enhanced and for eight games in 2012, the explosive playmaker did a little bit of everything.

He took bubble screens and short quick-hit passes and turned them into big gains. He lined up in the backfield and displayed his demolition derby style as a running back. He lobbied for more action on special teams and continued to be one of the league’s most electrifying return men, evidenced best by his 105-yard score in Week 4 in Detroit.

At the season’s midpoint, Harvin was the Vikings star being propped up as a league MVP candidate, not Adrian Peterson. Harvin was the one who seemed more responsible for the team’s 5-3 start, amassing a league-best 60 catches and totaling 739 yards from scrimmage with five total touchdowns mixed in. (Peterson, for the record, had 914 yards from scrimmage and four TDs after eight games.)

But now? Well, now all that Percy Harvin feel-good has been snowed under by a blizzard of Percy Harvin confusion. Most significantly: the question on whether Harvin will remain a Viking in 2013 and beyond cannot be answered definitively, fueling a new wave of speculation that he may soon be traded.\

Report: Vikings looking to trade Harvin
By John Holler & Tim Yotter

Posted Feb 10, 2013


Local news report says team sources claim that the Vikings are looking to trade Percy Harvin following a blow-up with head coach Leslie Frazier. The incident was credited for why Harvin was placed on injured reserve and why the Vikings are looking to trade Harvin.

Mike Max of WCCO Radio reported this weekend that the Vikings are actively pursuing a trade for wide receiver Percy Harvin.

According to the report, the reason the Vikings put Harvin on injured reserve while he was healing from an ankle injury was related to a meltdown Harvin had that was directed toward head coach Leslie Frazier in the presence of several players.

Sources said that teammates didn’t take well to Harvin’s blow-up at Frazier, which was similar to an episode Harvin had with former head coach Brad Childress. As a result, the report claims, the Vikings are looking to trade Harvin while his trade value is high.

Harvin is under contract for one more season and there has been speculation that, if the Vikings were looking to trade Harvin, any potential trade would likely have to come prior to this year’s draft.

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman was vague about Harvin’s status on Friday. Asked about Harvin’s contract status, Spielman declined to get into specifics.

Seahawks poised to add Percy Harvin
Posted by Danny O'Neil
.

The Seahawks are believed to have agreed to trade for receiver Percy Harvin, pending a physical examination. The news of the trade was first reported by Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.

The deal can not be finalized or announced until the league year officially begins on Tuesday, and the team is prohibited from disclosing anything.

It’s believed the Seahawks will send multiple picks to the Vikings in compensation, a package that could include Seattle’s first-round pick in 2013, which is No. 25 overall.

There have been repeated reports that Harvin is unhappy with Minnesota, and would like to be traded. He has another year remaining on his contract, and is scheduled to make $2.76 million. It’s unclear if the trade includes an agreement on a new contract.

A few things to know:

• Any trade will likely be contingent on two things: Harvin’s physical examination and a new contract. That said, there’s no way a deal gets this far unless the Seahawks and Harvin are fairly certain of working out a deal. That means there may be a little lag time in negotiating the particulars of the contract, but the broad strokes of the arrangment are done.

Wilson with a legitimate receiving threat is a really scary thought... NFC West just got an awful lot tougher...
