Harvin's Future Continues a to Be a Big Question for Vikes & More NFC North News
On a team with more than a few question marks, what to do with Percy Harvin seems to be a topic that the Vikings and their fans circle back to at least once a week.
This week, it was ESPN's Kevin Seifert who dove headlong into that mess, with a column looking at the ups and downs of Harvin's career over just the last nine months.
Without a doubt, the situation is complex, and like Seifert, I too wonder at times if there is more going on in the background than we actually know about.
Harvin certainly is high-strung, but he's also the only reliable receiver on the team. And, at 24, Harvin is still very young and in his prime.
Is he a pain in the rear end to deal with? Is he prone to some really bad tantrums to the press? Sure.
But he's also a guy who you can center an offense around, and when you pair him with Adrian Peterson, the upside for this offense is really, really high.
Without a doubt, Harvin wants an extension, and he has earned it. The question is—and it's a sticky one at that—can Harvin and the team come to an agreement on how much money he is actually worth?
There's a good chance that this situation ends up being the biggest storyline for the Vikings this offseason.
