NFC North Daily: Hot Breakfast Links for June 20
We've got a lot to cover, since the Vikings started minicamps this week, and a potentially huge point of contention in terms of the Bounty Kerfuffle.
Lots to go over and I am pressed for time today, so no twitter list this morning, though I will try to catch up this afternoon after I return from the NYC B/R Studios.
Green Bay Packers
A lot keeps happening with the bounty case this week, the biggest moment possibly coming from Packers defensive end Anthony Hargrove. Kevin Seifert discusses Hargrove's contention that the voice the NFL says is his on tape asking for bounty money isn't his at all.
Seifert is dead right—this could be huge, at least for Hargrove, but potentially for the case as a whole. For Hargrove it could erase or reduce his suspension. That depends on other evidence.
For the other players—well, if the NFL misidentified Hargrove, couldn't it have done so with them?
The longer this goes, the more the whole thing stinks.
Meanwhile, Zach Kruse discusses John Jolly's request for reinstatement from the league.
By now you've heard that Percy Harvin is unhappy with his contract and threatening to skip minicamp. He showed yesterday, though according to Seifert's on the ground report on yesterday's session, he's clearly not happy.
Judd Zulgad chimes in on the subject saying Harvin's demands couldn't have worse timing.
Now Harvin is requesting a trade, per ESPN. I'll have a take on this in a bit but really, yuck.
Neil Hayes thinks the Bears have a ton of weapons to choose from at wide receiver.
While many are optimistic, B/R writer Brett Solesky sees some potential pitfalls.
Cliff Avril was on NFL Total Access, and Anwar Richardson relays that Avril would prefer to not play under the franchise tag in 2012.
Pete Prisco thinks that Ndamukong Suh is the NFL's most overrated player.
I will leave you to discuss that.
