    Vikings to trade Harvin?

    Report: Vikings will actively pursue Percy Harvin trade - NFL.com

    Just rumors right now, but thought this is big news. I think its good for the Vikings. IMO, Harvin is overrated, sell him high, and let the next team deal with him.

    Great player when he's healthy.... Which is 1/4th of the time.

    I'm not surprised. It sounds like he doesn't want to be a Vike. Hopefully they can find a #1WR in free agency (Mike Wallace) or the draft.

    Yeah, this doesn't come as a surprise.

    I'm actually a fan of Harvin, but I think we could get a good deal out of this.

    Re: Vikings to trade Harvin?

    Harvin's one of the most talented and explosive players in the NFL, but the guy is hurt all the time and is a ******* head case. Get something for him while you can IMO. If he can't get along with Les Frazier, there's probably not a coach in the league he can get along with.

    Re: Vikings to trade Harvin?

    I like when he's on the field but with his migranes, injuries and attitude he's become a bigger headache than anything he has suffered. I'm definitely in favor of trading him...hopefully the Vikes can get some decent compensation

    Harvin was 90% of our offense when he was healthy. Hopefully we can sell him high and get a nice return

    Re: Vikings to trade Harvin?

    Only way I will get behind this is if we can trade him for a SOLID QB and a decent WR. If we end up trading him for a draft pick I'm going to kick Zigi Wilf in the nuts.

    Re: Vikings to trade Harvin?

    All the sources I am looking at say that he won't go for anything better than a second round draft pick. I agree that he can be a big headache in the locker room but he is a great player and other than AP, he is the biggest help to Ponder. Hopefully we can keep him. Signing him longer term and drafting a WR would be huge IMO. Harvin just needs to keep healthy and have a good attitude and the Vikings will be in good shape. You cannot let a player of his ability go for a 2nd round pick. Hopefully there will be a bidding war for him if we are looking to get rid of him.

    This. If you can get him to play every game, he is a top 10 or even better skill player in the league. However, that is tough to get. If the vikings do trade him though, they absolutely must sign a receiver like Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe, Greg Jennings, or Victor Cruz with the cap room that they save.

    Doing that would be much easier than drafting a #1 WR, which is a tough position to get in the mid-late first.

    Value at DT, CB, S, and LB are all much better at that point in the draft than WR. And there are a ton of slot receivers to draft or sign for cheap to put in Harvin's spot (although they won't be nearly as good).

    If they get a 2nd and a 4th for him I guess that is decent. I still think they might be able to snake a 1st, but provided it was an early 2nd I would be perfectly fine with that.

    There is no way that the Vikings trade him for a QB. Ponder is their QB. Whether you like it or not. They will trade Harvin for picks.

    This.

    Ponder is the Vikings QB. He could be a really good QB in the NFL, just needs more weapons around him.

    That might work in your fantasy league, not gonna happen in real life.

    Yeah. loved Harvin but too fragile. Time to unload and get the best we can for him.
