WIDE RECEIVER PERCY HARVIN DEMANDS A TRADE FROM VIKINGS
Fri, 22 Jun 2012 03:29 AM EDT

Percy Harvin is not happy with the Minnesota Vikings.

Harvin isn’t saying what has him so upset with the organization that drafted him in the 1st round in 2009, but he sounded the alarm that something needs to be addressed before training camp starts at the end of July. Basketball spreads

“I just put it this way, there are a large amount of different things that have to be sorted out,” Harvin said on the 1st day of a mandatory minicamp. “Just haven’t been truly happy recently. We’ve got a couple of things to work on. I’m here in the classroom. We’ll go from there.”

Harvin watched most of the morning practice without taking part though Coach Leslie Frazier related that was planned as the star receiver is only 2 months removed from shoulder surgery. He was far more concerned in the afternoon practice, running routes full speed with a helmet on and catching passes.

Harvin has 2 years left on his rookie contract, but declined a several opportunities to be more specific about why he’s unhappy, be it financial or some connection with the direction of a team that appears to be in reconstructing mode after sequential last-place finishes in the NFC North.

“I don’t get into specifics,” Harvin related. “Just overall haven’t been really cheerful. But we here, hopefully we can get things worked out and go from there.”

Harvin said he “absolutely” wants to have things settled before training camp, but didn’t say that he planned to hang on if those issues weren’t resolved.

“We’ve got a substantial amount of time between then, hopefully a lot of conversations,” Harvin claimed. “It’s simply a couple different problems. It’s hard to try and tell you guys without telling you men. I just keep it as that.”

Frazier said he plans to meet with one of his most crucial players to talk about Harvin’s grievances in depth, but appeared assured that any concerns might be answered before training camp begins.

“It’s not something that cannot be handled and not anything we won’t discuss through,” Frazier expounded. “Not alarmed. Not alarmed at all.”

Still, to have the key gear of a remade receiver group upset needs to be of some concern to the Vikings. Harvin posted career highs in receptions (87), yards (967) and total touchdowns with 9, 6 receiving, 2 rushing and one on a kick return.

He is the team’s most flexible player, also serving as a backup running back who rushed for 345 yards last season, one of the most dangerous kick returners in the NFL and the undisputed leader of the Vikings receivers.

Regardless of missing countless practices with injuries, including migraine headaches that troubled him for a lot of his 1st two seasons, Harvin has established himself as a respected vet presence on the team heading into his 4th year. He appeared at some of the voluntary work-outs earlier this summer in spite of still getting over shoulder surgery and is being counted on to help QB Christian Ponder settle in during his 2nd season.
