NFL Speculation: Teams That Must Trade for Percy Harvin
Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports
Percy Harvin would certainly bolster other NFL receiving corps.

Percy Harvin continues to be a problem for the Minnesota Vikings.

According to Mike Florio of NBC Sports:

Last year, when Harvin asked for a trade, he wasn’t unhappy with his financial situation.

Per a league source, Harvin currently is expected to stay away from offseason workouts and training camp absent a new deal.

Also, in an article by Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com, speaking with a personnel executive from the AFC:

The executive guessed the Vikings could end up with a second- or third-round pick, plus another pick to sweeten the pot. The personnel man said he thought they'd be lucky to get a third-rounder, considering perception around the league about the Vikings' predicament.

Given all that, Harvin's abilities are unquestioned and gambling on him with a second-day draft selection isn't a terrible risk. He'll only be 25 years old before the 2013 season kicks off and brings excellent versatility to an offense.

Obviously, character issues remain a concern, but we've also seen talent win that battle for appeal quite often.
