According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, ”some good sources around the NFL” tell writer Sid Hartman that Harvin no longer wants to play for the Vikings and he is asking for a ticket out of town. Hartman writes:
April 22 is the first day of the Vikings offseason workouts at Winter Park and rest assured Percy Harvin won’t be there.
There has been a lot of speculation about Harvin’s future with the Vikings, and the wide receiver has refused to comment about the different reports.
However, the latest word from some good sources around the NFL is that Harvin, who missed the final seven regular-season games as well as the playoff game because of a serious ankle injury, has told the Vikings that he doesn’t want to play for them and wants to be traded.
The former first-round pick is signed through 2013, but has been outspoken about his unhappiness with his current contract. While the Vikings are in the driver’s seat and have control of the situation, Harvin’s attitude and demands may be too much to deal with for one more year. Harvin has become a cancer in the locker room and his departure could do a lot for the team’s chemistry and overall morale.
