Percy is the only weapon in the passing game we have. Without him, we are nothing. Give him what he wants. I think the guy deserves it from the Vikings Org."AKA" PURPLEPOWERPUNCH

He misses games every year, including 7 this season.
He has already held out once (ending his hold out after only a week, but the precedent is already there).
He's already hinted that if he's not given a BIG money deal, he'll hold out next season too.
Meanwhile, Adrian Peterson is quietly delivering the most inspiring performance that any football player EVER has achieved.
Harvin is undeniably talented. He's also undeniably the only receiver we have who's worth a crap. But that does NOT mean he deserves "whatever he wants".
Harvin should feel ashamed of himself right now. I'd simply ask him to look Peterson in the eye right now and say, "I'm giving 100% too", then we can talk about renegotiation. If Harvin could sack-up like Peterson does EVERY SINGLE WEEK, he'd be AMAZING.
But he's too much about HARVIN.
IMO, we trade him off. He's talented, but he's probably worth more on the block than he is on the sidelines.

PH is a rare talent, so many possibilities, and very high drive.
as a viking fan i'd love to have him lined up on our O. he's a weapon, especially with teams focusing on AP. just his presence would open up rudy, and now that JC is catching the ball.. with childs and wright coming up, it would make for a great situation for a QB that can make the throws consistently.
on the trade block he could be worth that QB.. or maybe LB/WR/S, or 2/3 combo.. his value is very high, and deservedly so. i'm sure teams will be ringing, and it's a walker type trade.. why not, set up this team NOw to be a championship contender for the next decade.
so either way it's a win/win unless we do the really dumb route. keep him underpaid, franchise him.. and watch him play the holdout.

Trade him while he has value.
Sorry to say that but it is needed if he is not respecting the coach. Nobody is above the team!

Truth be told, at least Marrdro's truth, I think that injury will play the biggest role in whether or not he gets the contract he wants. If he is traded in the offseason I believe that is proof positive that he was asking for more than they wanted to give and will be another talented, yet hurt receiver to get his walking papers from the Vikings (Rice).Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Problem is, I'm not so sure they will be able to trade him. My guess, teams will sit back and wait for him to be released at the end of next year so they can see if they can work a low end deal with him.
Maybe just maybe you can find someone like Dallas who would trade a high round pick for him for one years services (without getting a long term deal done), but I doubt it.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

If we don't see a contract extension this off-season, it will appear as we are ok with him hitting the market next off-season.
Something is better than nothing.
