Despite reaching the playoffs last season, the Minnesota Vikings have a tough decision to make when it comes to whether or not they should trade star wide receiver Percy Harvin. When healthy, Harvin is arguably one of the most dangerous players in the NFL as he’s capable of being a triple threat, but the former first-round pick hasn’t been shy when expressing his frustrations with the organization.
Even if the Vikings were upset with the way certain things were handled by Harvin last season, they need to figure out a way to make their star wideout happy and do whatever it takes to make sure he’s on board for the 2013 season. Minnesota already has arguably the league’s best running back in Adrian Peterson and having a player like Harvin gives them one of the most dangerous offenses.
He can catch. He can run. He can even be used as a returner on special teams.
Whatever the Vikings need to do to keep Harvin around and happy–they need to put their pride aside and do what’s best for the organization. Imagine what this team would have accomplished last year in the playoffs with Harvin in the lineup and thinking of the potential for him heading into 2013 playing alongside Peterson is nothing short of scary.
The past is the past and it’s time for both parties to move on. Harvin has proven to be one of the most dangerous offensive threats in the game and trading him next season would be nothing but devastating for the Vikings.
