Will The Vikings Move Percy Harvin? If So – Where?

Percy Harvin’s name continues to be bantered about by many who feel the Vikings are going to spend this offseason trying to trade him.

Will they be able to get it done? Or are the Vikings putting on a smoke-screen about moving him?

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that a Vikings team source told her Harvin is worth keeping: “He is a star athlete who is a great player. Is he a volatile guy? Yes. Can he be managed? Yes. For me he is not an issue. You just have to be able to deal and manage star players. I don’t think we should be at the point of being done with him.”

A few days back NFL.com reported five possible landing spots for Harvin – the Niners, Patriots, Dolphins, Jaguars and Browns.

    Peterson and Harvin are the two most explosive running backs in the NFL, and, he can catch. Top 2-3 KR’s. Unless he is an absolute psycho, you have to build around these two. Alot falls on the O.C. Another concern with Harvin is he could really get injured with his reckless abandon, and the Vikings have mentioned that. To his credit, he never goes off in the media. I love his playing. Best ever Viking so far, in my opinion.

    @PurpleHaze…pretty good analysis, but as far as the best Viking ever, I’d have to give that title to Peterson, or go old school and say Alan Page. Harvin is indeed a dynamic player, and if they can improve some of the other areas of need and keep going in a positive direction to rebuild, then I, too, say keep him and pay him if they can still have the money necessary to sign other quality players in the rebuilding process. There is always the possibility of injury, and for a vital player like Harvin, that would be a devastating blow, but I guess that’s the dice you have to roll in the NFL, but it would be very prudent to have someone waiting in the wings that could perform at least at a reasonable level close to Harvin’s. That would surely be a tall order, though. Of course, there is always the possibility that Harvin doesn’t want to stay in Minnesota at any price, in which case I wouldn’t dare give him up for nothing less than a first and second rounder, plus a high quality player or two. Let’s face it…you watch him play…he’s worth it, I don’t care what anyone says. There is no way to tell really how volatile he is, but he can’t be any worse than Randy Moss was, and the Vikings dealt with him for several years. If Harvin is THAT disgruntled, then maybe a trade just MIGHT be the best move for them, but if I were the one calling the shots here, I’d be getting one helluva lot in return for him. After all, he IS one of the most dynamic receivers and kick returners in the league, and he’s still very young.

    If Harvin were to be traded, why wasn’t the KC Chief’s mention as a possible trade partner. Andy Reid would love to get his hands on player like Harvin who is a more explosive player than DeShawn Jackson IMO whom Reid drafted in the first round when he was with the Eagles. Harvin would be a perfect fit for the style of offense that Reid will run in KC. in exchange the Vikings could get the Chief 2nd. and 3rd.round picks in the up coming draft for fair compensation for Harvin who will compete for MVP status on a yearly bases. Look I sure as hell don’t want to lose Percy Harvin but we have to prepare ourselves for the possibility of it happening.
