12:01 PM ET 03.10 | April 22 is the first day of the Vikings offseason workouts at Winter Park and rest assured Percy Harvin won???t be there. There has been a lot of speculation about Harvin???s future with the Vikings, and the wide receiver has refused to comment about the different reports. However, the latest word from some good sources around the NFL is that Harvin, who missed the final seven regular-season games as well as the playoff game because of a serious ankle injury, has told the Vikings that he doesn???t want to play for them and wants to be traded. Harvin???s relationship with the Vikings has been much-discussed, including rumors that he isn???t pleased with the coaches??? plans for him on offense and that he does not get along with the medical staff. Quite simply, it seemed as though Harvin wasn???t happy here, and that was made obvious when he didn???t hang around the team during the late-season push toward the playoffs while he rehabbed his ankle.

Come to Seattle, Percy. We have a QB who can chuck it!

He is signed through this year at $2.9 million and is a $4 million cap hit. The Vikings are under the cap. He can become UFA next year, he should just shut up and play the year out. Only way he is traded is a sign and trade deal, not going to happen.

Yea, but will Harvin be on the field to catch it ?

Never say never 50.

If a team came up with the right combo of players or draft picks, Harvin would be in a new uniform faster than he can run a 40-yard dash.

Send the gang down to Mississippi and get the old man back and he'll stay....Oh God, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

True, but that would only happen if they can sign him long term and not lose him as a UFA next year. There is the rub.

Vikes should trade him to the Pack and the Pack trade Jennings to the Vikes. Oh, wait the Pack gave up on Jennings so they get nada for him.

Everyone wants to play for the Patriots. It's a fact of nature.

He never mentioned his contract.

He simply hates Minnesota, for whatever reason.

Another misunderstood receiver!!!

March 10, 2013  08:11 PM ET

We have all our picks for this year and into the future. We have a couple million in cap room. We have UPMC Medical Center, one of the best hospitals in the nation, and a global leader in neuroscience research. We have a sudden lack of a speedy WR.

Hey Rick, you should give Kevin a call.
