No one wants to see Percy walk but with all the drama from him early on this season and now his surprise IR status, the possibility is entirely......well.....possible.
Having watched every presser from the 2012 Vikings it didnt take long to realize that there was a problem with Percy. Since his demand to be traded one may have noticed a bit of an attitude from the upstart WR. Of course none of his teammates or Vikings staff have made any direct mention of this. Questions concerning Percy have been side-stepped often. Leslie's favorite response to such inquiries is "Percy just really wants to win." There is nothing wrong with that. Harvin's motivation may been a bit more selfish. Indeed it seemed that there was a much lighter atmosphere in the locker room after his ankle injury forced Percy out of the last few games. In an interview with Adrian Peterson the Vikings star RB called Harvins absence a "blessing in disguise" as he hoped that QB Ponder would now be able to spread the ball around more which is exactly what happened. Many have ridiculed Coach Frazier for keeping Harvin in the game after his ankle injury @ Seattle in November. The question becomes whether or not that was Leslie's call to make or was the decision an effort to keep a lid on Percy's temper? With the Vikings a long-shot to make the play-offs this season Percy is awefully quick to land on the IR list with an injury that should have healed by now.
Is the Vikings W column better off with Percy on the roster? Definitely. Is Percy what is best for the team?
What can you get for one Percy Harvin?
