02:10 PM ET 02.21 | On Thursday, Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman once again said that he has "no intent" to trade wide receiver Percy Harvin. Spielman made the same statement in an interview on Feb. 15 and repeated himself several times on Thursday. Harvin has said he wants a new contract that pays him upwards of $10 million per season and could potentially hold out. That stance made Harvin a popular name in trade rumors, but the Vikings are standing by their statement that they do not plan to trade their star receiver. Harvin is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2013 season, and even if he elects not to hold out he could still be viewed as a trade option for the Vikings, who will be unlikely able to re-sign him next year.

Harvin is a tool. Between his "headaches" and injuries he rarely plays anyway. Let him go.

It's not uncommon for intentions to go awry.

The guy has a lot of talent, do they have Shrinks in Minnesota? If so hire one, he will pay for himself in Touchdowns!!!
