Reports: Vikings Want To Trade Percy Harvin

I've been saying for a while that I do not expect the Vikings to trade Percy Harvin. Of course, I have absolutely no inside information either way; it's just how I've personally been reading the situation. And I well could be wrong.

According to this report here, supposedly I am. The thing is, the report doesn't identify sources or even offer quotes from the team (aside from Spielman's public comments on Harvin the other day, which I still feel can be taken as an indication against trading Harvin). While this doesn't prove its incorrect, it does throw a bit of cold water onto the whole issue.

The thing is until Harvin is either traded or given a contract extension, I suspect a considerable amount of reports swinging either way will be coming out. Obviously we won't cover them all, but this particular one is something of a ‘starting gun firing' for the whole thing, as it's the first time a report has outright stated that the Vikings are, yes, trying to trade Harvin.

We'll just have to see. One thing I do wholeheartedly agree with in the report is that if he is traded it will be before the draft. By the end of the first draft day, if Harvin is still a Viking, then you can expect him to remain one for the foreseeable future.
