There has been jack shit going on since the unofficial beginning of free agency, but we’re more than happy to report that the Minnesota Vikings are probably going to implode. The culprit: receiver Percy Harvin and the Vikings idiot front office.
Harvin first asked for a trade last offseason and why wouldn’t he? He plays for the Vikings.
It’s well known that Harvin also wants a new contract. He’s currently in the final season of his rookie deal. Meanwhile, the Vikings haven’t bothered to re-up his deal and have publicly said they have no interest in trading him.
Not only did Harvin ask to be traded, but he also got in a confrontation with coach Leslie Frazier last season. It’s also been reported that he threatened to walk out on the team during training camp in another contract-related flap.
“[The Vikings are] in a tough spot,” one source said. “If you don’t take some aggressive action, this could get really bad.”
We hope it does and it’s rapidly progressing in that direction.
Today there was a report in the Star Tribune that has Harvin telling the Vikings he won’t play for them.
If you recall, the Green Bay Packers have some experience with situations like these. Twin turds Mike McKenzie and Javon Walker both demanded trades after starting their careers in Green Bay. Both eventually got what they asked for.
The Packers did their best to minimize the distraction each player caused, essentially ignoring them after the team released their prepared statements. Will the Vikings manage to do the same?
Doubt it. They’re the Vikings. Stupidity and failure is par for the course.
Hopefully, this situation will derail their season before it even begins.
Skol, Vikings. I think the entire team should demand to be traded.
The Vikings have that short dude Wright to take his place.
You offer a 2nd round tender to the POS. Then you trade him during or prior to the draft, for peanuts if you have to. Seriously, I’d take a 4th rounder and a carton of Kools for the guy.
Then you pursue Greg Jennings, big time.
Why would they want Jennings? Wallace should be their top target and this draft is loaded with WR’s. Good ones. No need to overpay for Greg Jennings (who’s all about the money, now) as he continues his decline.
You offer a 2nd rounder tender to a guy under contract?
I thought I read the guy was a RFA, with a 3 year contract like Sam Shields.
I had no idea why you would sign a 1st round pick to a 3 year deal, but with this a-hole, anything is possible.
But no. I see now that he does have one year left. That means the Vikes are free to trade him for a blowjob and a bag of Doritos.
That’s about as good as they’ll get too with teams knowing they don’t want to keep him.
Yet more distractions. Keep em coming!
Very HAPPY to see the Migraine gone from the VIKINGS. He has been a pain in the ass for 2 years but now he’s gone and we have Jennings and a much better locker room without Harven. He will show Seatlle how much of an baby he will be when he doesn’t get his way. We’re much better off without his kind of bABY ATTITUDE.
gLAD TO SEE HIM GONE AFTER 2 YEARS OF HIS ACTIONS ON AND OFF THE FIELD. hE GOT A JOB BECA– — USE WE DID HIM A FAVOR WHEN NO OTHER TEAM WANTED HIM ANYWAY. nOW HE’S GONE AND WE ARE HAPPY TO HAVE jENNINGS TAKING HIS PLACE. sEATTLE WILL BE SORRY.
