Vikings Will Attempt to Trade Percy Harvin


The Minnesota Vikings are going to attempt to trade wide receiver Percy Harvin, according to a report from WCCO’s Mike Max. Max writes that Harvin was placed on season-ending injured reserve not because of his ankle injury, but because of a blowup with head coach Leslie Frazier.

From the report:

Multiple sources tell Max that Harvin had an embarrassing tirade directed toward Frasier, disrespecting the coach during the season when Harvin was sidelined with an injured ankle.

Teammates were present, and Max was told that is when Harvin left the team and was put on injured reserve.

Sources say teammates were disappointed in Harvin’s actions and the organization has moved toward less tolerance for that behavior.

Harvin apparently had a similar incident when Childress coached the team.

Harvin would generate a lot of interest on the trade market and the Vikings should be able to get decent compensation — they will likely aim for at least a second-round pick —  for the young, dynamic receiver. It is clear that he has worn out his welcome in Minnesota and a change of scenery could be best for everyone involved.

    You should either take this report down or work on getting better sources than “Mike Max”

    First, Speilman has never leaked out internal information even with the most minor issues let alone a trade including a player of Harvin’s Caliber. Isn’t it odd that no other reporters are coming out with this information? Mike Max is not a main Vikings Reporter and doesn’t have access to any “secret” sources.

    There’s a good reason this story hasn’t made it’s way to ESPN yet. Because it’s not credible.

    I’d wait to report things like this to prevent upsetting thousands of Vikings fans.

    Hey! Another ass clown report. Good job buffoon.

    This story looks even more ridiculous today now that we know Harvin, Frazier and Speilman don’t want to trade him. Can’t fault you too much for running with this, every other hack journalist on here has blasted out the same crap.
