When Percy Harvin reported to Vikings minicamp in June and told reporters he was unhappy with his situation, he never explained why he was unhappy. He took to Twitter to say his contract wasn’t the issue, but gave no further explanation.
Ben Goessling of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports Harvin clarified the situation somewhat Monday saying he was frustrated with not knowing which position he’d play each week. He said he wasn’t the only player with those feelings at the time and praised offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave for clarifying his role.
“I think it was just the identity of our offense, just not only me, just guys knowing exactly what the coaches are asking of them on a week-to-week basis,” said Harvin, who has lined up at receiver and running back, besides returning kickoffs. “(It was) not playing one position one week, and (coming) in and not totally having a grasp on what they’re asking for the next week.
