Minnesota Vikings Percy Harvin Requests Trade
Percy Harvin has requested a trade from the Vikings. The shocking news coming from someone inside the organization who requested to be kept secret. 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."
Harvin attended the team's morning practice Wednesday, leaving the field before reporters could ask any questions. Running back Adrian Peterson said he hadn't spoken to his friend about it but planned to have a conversation to try to help smooth things over.
"I wouldn't say it's distracting. It's more bothering. It's like, we definitely don't want to lose this guy. ... I'm sure the organization will do what it has to do to keep this guy around," Peterson said. "If it was me, I would make sure that we kept him around. But we'll see."
Being that he is only 24 and considered by most to be one of the top players in the league, that request may not be granted.
