HarvinPosted by Josh Katzowitz

Last year, while he battled migraine headaches, Vikings WR Percy Harvin missed more than 30 days of practice and two games (yet, it didn’t keep him from trying to fight his head coach).

But now Harvin thinks he might be migraine-free. That’s what he told the Virginian-Pilot, saying he hasn’t felt this good since kindergarten.

Harvin has been spending much of his offseason in Gainesville, Fla. –- though he did not attend Vikings player-led workouts in Bradenton, Fla., -- and now he feels there’s a pretty good chance that the debilitating headaches might be a thing of his past.

"I met a couple of doctors," he said. "There were a couple of things they found in my neck that I won't get into -- some things they found and fixed, along with diet and the rest of the things that can cause them.

"It's been great, and knock on wood, it'll continue."

But if you want to be cynical – and really, that’s why we’re here – you could make the case put forth by Will Carroll on Twitter. Namely, Harvin hasn’t had a migraine in five months. He hasn’t played football in five months. It’s probably not a coincidence.

Some of the comments are hillarious.

I had migraines this year for the frst time since I can remember. In consultation with experts I made some lifestyle choices that have made a unique difference....diet switch - no more red wine - tequila and scotch only...lifestyle change - no wife...all good. Regret not having made these changes sooner.

He was last year too until someone made contact with him, it's sad because the kid is a great talent and won't get to play a full season because of these migraines.

Are you sure that was LeBron doing the tweeting? DWade usually has to do his finishing for him.  Must be awkward around the ladies.

This coincided with him blocking Favre's number from his phone.

I spoke to Lebron, he said he loves you. He tweeted it.
