Percy Harvin was seen by multiple members of the press walking around, signing autographs, and riding his bike after the first practice on Saturday.

On Thursday, Carter created a stir amongst NFL followers when he essentially questioned Sidney Rice’s work ethic.  The comments came after Rice failed to show up […]
