Wide receiver Percy Harvin showed up at Vikings minicamp today, but said he’s “not happy with a couple situations.” Harvin wouldn’t elaborate but said they must be resolved before he reports to training camp.
Coach Leslie Frazier wouldn’t give specifics on Harvin but said he expects issues to be resolved before camp. The two are suppose to talk today.
“I just put it this way, there’s a lot of different things that have to be sorted out,” Harvin said on the first day of a mandatory minicamp. “Just haven’t been really happy lately. We’ve got a couple of things to work on. I’m here in the classroom. We’ll go from there.”
Harvin watched most of the practice without participating, though coach Leslie Frazier said that was planned because the star receiver is only two months removed from shoulder surgery.
Harvin has two years left on his rookie contract, but declined several opportunities to be more specific about why he is unhappy, be it financial or something to do with the direction of a team that appears to be in rebuilding mode after consecutive last-place finishes in the NFC North.
“I don’t get into specifics,” Harvin said. “Just overall haven’t been really happy. But we here, hopefully we can get things worked out and go from there.”
Harvin said he “definitely” wants to have things settled before training camp, but did not say he planned to hold out if those issues weren’t resolved.
“We’ve got a lot of time between then, hopefully a lot of conversations,” Harvin said. “It’s just a couple different issues. It’s hard to try to tell you guys without telling you guys. I just keep it as that.”
