06:44 PM ET 12.21 | Percy Harvin's days as a Minnesota Viking may be numbered. According to ESPN1500 in Minneapolis, as many as four NFL sources are confirming that Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin had an intense and heated exchange with head coach Leslie Frasier over the decision to place the star on injured reserve last week. To make matters worse, the report says that Harvin was very public in his fight with Frasier, as it happened in front of various coaches and players in the Vikings locker room. The fight occurred over Harvin's ankle, which he suffered a complete tear during the Vikings' loss to the Seahawks in October. Apparently Harvin thought he could play, but the Vikings had other plans and team doctors did not support Harvin's sentiment. This isn't the first time Harvin has become a notable problem in the Vikings locker room. He was kicked out of practice in 2010 by Brad Childress, who basically accused Harvin of not taking his job seriously. Witnesses to that fight say it spilled over into the weight room and ended when Harvin reportedly threw a weight at a former Vikings coach.

I'd like to see him to go to a team like Denver, Green Bay or New Orleans to be a "Wes Welker" type slot receiver for one of the NFLs elite QBs.

Percy doesn't have a talent problem its an attitude problem. I don't think he even knows what he wants. maybe he doesn't want to share the spotlight with Adrian Pederson. That could be it. He wants to be thee star prima donna go to guy.

Percy goes down and the Vikings all of a sudden are in playoff position without him. At the end of the season number 12 and the Vikings need to part ways. Since General Jerry likes troubled players maybe Percy could end up in Big D for some draft choices.
