Report: Vikings' Harvin wants to be traded
Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin is unhappy and reportedly wants out of Minnesota.
According to multiple media outlets, including the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Harvin has requested a trade. The Florida product is entering the fourth year of a five-year, $12.05 million deal.
Harvin talked about his frustration with several unspecified issues when he spoke to the media following Tuesday's mini-camp practice.
"It's different issues," said Harvin on Tuesday. "I'm just not happy. I won't go into how unhappy... I'm just overall not happy with a couple situations and hopefully, they can be worked out."
Meanwhile, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier didn't seem to concerned on Tuesday.
"Yeah, we have and we're going to talk some more, but the good thing is he is here," Frazier said. "Just happy that he is here and participating and a part of what we're doing and looking forward to him having a great 2012."
The wideout apparently wants the team to rework the final two years of his rookie contract, which he signed in 2009. Harvin is scheduled to make $915,000 and $1.55 million over the final two years, respectively. With potential bonuses, those two years could be worth around $2.5 million.
Harvin, who had minor shoulder surgery during the offseason, has been a key member of the Vikings since coming into the league. He made an immediate impact by catching 60 passes for 790 yards and six touchdowns in 2009.
The 5-foot-11, 184-pounder has amassed 218 receptions, 2,625 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns in 45 games with Minnesota. Harvin has also returned 98 kickoffs for 2,609 yards and four scores, and was selected to the Pro Bowl as a return specialist in 2009.
