Percy Harvin rumors: Vikings WR to be traded?

Raj Mehta-US PRESSWIRE

The Minnesota Vikings are reportedly going to look at trading wide receiver Percy Harvin.

Rumors are once again swirling about Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin's future. Last summer, he reportedly requested a trade, but the Vikings had no interest in dealing him at the time. Now, though, WCCO is reporting that the Vikings will try to trade Harvin thanks in part to a "blowup" he had with Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier last season.

I know you're probably wondering about how the Detroit Lions could manage to land Harvin, but don't waste your time thinking about that possibility. The Vikings aren't going to trade Harvin within the division unless they get a ridiculous return, and no matter how good he is, the Lions probably don't have much interest in acquiring a Titus Young type of character concern. Also, Harvin is expected to hold out in hopes of getting a bigger deal, so there's no sense in the Lions trying to trade for him.

The reason this story is worth keeping an eye on is because it'd be nice for the Lions if Harvin exits the NFC North. He has been a very good player for the Vikings, and he has done some serious damage against the Lions in the past. (Just look at his kick return touchdown at Ford Field last season.) While it remains to be seen if the Vikings will actually go through with the idea of trading Harvin, this looks like it could be a very interesting situation. Not only is there the possibility of a trade, but the threat of a holdout exists as well.
