According to the Associated Press, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin has requested a trade. Neither Harvin nor the Vikings has publicly acknowledged the trade request, but here’s are a couple of snippets of what Harvin told reporters on Tuesday:
I’ll just put it this way — it’s a lot of different things that have to be sorted out. Just haven’t been real happy lately. So, we’ve got a couple things to work on. I’m here in the classroom, so we’ll go from here.
We’re kind of keeping everything in house. If specific people choose to tell you the stories, then they do. I keep everything in house and we deal with things in house. So, that’s the way I keep it.
I’m just not happy. I won’t go into how unhappy. I’m just overall not happy with a couple situations.
Harvin is coming off a career year (87 receptions, 967 yards and nine touchdowns) and off-season shoulder surgery. With Harvin being the Vikings’ best receiver, they’re going to have to figure out how to make him happy very quickly.
