Percy Harvin on trade rumors: 'I got nothing to say about any of that'
It's been more than a week since the rumors began: the Vikings were reportedly willing to trade disgruntled wideout Percy Harvin, who reportedly was considering a holdout unless he got a new contract. As the story evolved, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported that Harvin was frustrated with the direction of the passing game and not his contract.
It's been more than a week since the rumors began: the Vikings were reportedly willing to trade disgruntled wideout Percy Harvin, who reportedly was considering a holdout unless he got a new contract.
As the story evolved, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora wrote that Harvin was frustrated not with his contract, but the direction of the passing game. And Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told 1500ESPN.com's Tom Pelissero "We have no intent of trading Percy Harvin. … [He] is under contract, and we expect him -- just like all of our players under contract -- to be here."
Through it all, we never heard from Harvin, who appeared in just nine games in 2012 and last spoke to the media on Nov. 5, a day after landing on injured reserve with a bum ankle.
On Tuesday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Brian Murphy caught up with Harvin in the driveway of his Fleming Island, Fla., home. So what does the Vikings' former first-round pick think about all the rumors?
"I got nothing to say about any of that," Harvin said, according to Murphy, as he returned to his house and closed the front door.
Riveting, we know.
But this is what happens in the "hurry up and wait" part of the offseason between the Super Bowl and the start of free agency. Speculation reigns while players and front offices jockey for leverage. As it stands, the Vikings say they aren't trading Harvin and the wideout reportedly is more upset about the passing game than he is about his rookie deal that's set to pay him $2.9 million in 2013. (In related news: Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder wants Harvin back.)
We're guessing someone's story changes in the coming weeks and months. And should that happen, Eye on Football's Will Brinson has already broken down where Harvin might land if he and the Vikings part ways.
