Minnesota Vikings Make Correct Decision to Trade Percy Harvin
Whenever high profile players are traded, you’re going to have a wide range of opinions on the deal. The Minnesota Vikings dealing wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks, is certainly no exception. Some people (Adrian Peterson) can’t believe it, others like myself, think it’s a good thing.
Here’s the bottom line with this trade – Harvin did not want to be in Minnesota. The Vikings tried to keep him, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Finally, GM Rick Spielman had to start listening to trade offers. When the Seahawks came calling with three picks, including a first-rounder, the deal became a no-brainer.
I get why people are upset, Harvin is a rare talent, but if he didn’t want to be in Minnesota, he had to go. The Vikings got a ‘best case scenario’ deal in return. Two months ago, nobody thought they would get a first round pick, but they got that and more. The first round pick makes the deal worth it alone.
However, this trade will ultimately be judged on what the Vikings do now. One would think that they will try to land themselves a star free agent wide receiver, and almost certainly use one of their first round picks on another receiver. I’m looking at this trade as just the first step towards a larger goal in Minneapolis to revamp the team.
You have to remember, the Vikings made it to the playoffs without Harvin last year. Not saying they were a better team without him, but they still got the job done. Now they have to replace him, and I think they’ll do that, and then some. Fans that are upset need to look at the big picture here. Give Minnesota some time, and after the draft if they still haven’t done enough to improve their receiver corps, then it’s okay to be mad.
