Percy Harvin Requests Trade From Vikings

Percy Harvin, a rising star receiver, has asked to be traded from the Minnesota Vikings.

One day after expressing frustration over several unspecified issues with the Vikings, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press today that Harvin has requested a trade. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

Harvin voiced frustration with the Vikings on Tuesday at the first day of mandatory minicamp. He did not say what his specific issues were with the team, only saying that he was unhappy with several things and wanted them addressed before training camp begins at the end of July.

”I just put it this way, there’s a lot of different things that have to be sorted out,” Harvin said Tuesday. ”Just haven’t been really happy lately. We’ve got a couple of things to work on. I’m here in the classroom. We’ll go from there.”

Given Harvin’s status as a 24-year-old rising star and one of the team’s top players, the request is unlikely to be granted. Coach Leslie Frazier said Tuesday that he was confident any issues Harvin had could be resolved well before training camp.

”I really feel like when he and I sit down and talk in depth,” Frazier said, ”whatever is in his heart or on his mind, we’ll get through it.”

Harvin, who is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, worked out with the team during an afternoon practice Tuesday and said later in the day that he did not want to be a distraction and would only wanted to talk about football issues.

  1. Please Percy. Come to the Raiders and we will take care of alll your headaches. With yu , Pryor, Macfadeden, Ford the wildcat will be unstoppable along with plays in between from Carson Palmer and you returning kicks and with DHB getting you to teach him how to catch the ball with his hands this team could be unstoppable on offense. Just need a good offensive center and we can rid of Barnes and Copper Carlisle and fix three or four pieces on defense, especially cornerbacks and someone with Kelly up the middle. Larmar HOuston is a beast and we just need someone on the right side. Anyway that is my small wish list.

  2. Mr.Mirabella,
    Did you bother to read when this story was written? It was back on June 20, 2012 since then the Vikings and Percy Harvin made up and played together this season until he was hurt in November and missed the rest of the season including the playoffs. No I'm sorry Mr. Mirabella this isn't going to be like the Randy Moss trade, Percy is staying a Viking for his Career.
    GO VIKINGS IN 2013!
