    Pretty impressive trade. I'm a bit surprised we were able to get that much for him. Seattle could be a good place for Percy, I think they will utilize him largely the way we did. The price they paid was very high though.

    Makes this year's draft a lot more interesting for sure.

    I disagree. I don't think e price they paid was too high.
    Think about it this way. The picks they up are only worth the 23rd pick. Would they find a WR like Harvin with the 25th pick this year? Nope. In the past years great players have been shipped out for next to nothing ( Holmes for a 5th) but the true value is correct.

    To get the Seahawks 1st rd pick and 7th rd pick this year, and a mid round pick next year was simply genius on Spielman's part. I was holding out hope for a 1st rd pick, but thought they would get 1 2nd rd pick at the most because of the circumstances. Never thought they would get multiple picks that included a 1st this year.

    We all know it will be just a matter of time before Harvin complains about something in Seattle. That is his type, never happy and needs to bitch about something. Apparently it won't be his pay because I guess they are already talking about a new deal, but it will be something along the lines of not getting enough touches, or the staff not stroking his enormous ego enough.

    I cannot, and will not speak for the rest of you here, but I am extremely happy that Harvin is gone and that the Vikings got a nice return for him. We are essentially getting a better return for Harvin then we did for Moss, which is awesome. Good riddance Harvin, now you are Pete Carroll's migraine (pun intended) and their fans will see the flashes of the great player you can be, but the diva that we all know you are. See ya.
    I was hoping that it wouldn't come to this but once noises started in the media then it was clear that outcome was Harvin leaving. I'm ok with this deal and will laugh my socks if Wilson goes into a slump this year. Then we'll Harvin start bitching some more, only this time he won't get his ego stroked by Carroll in the same way that people in Minnesota did.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Seattle is gunning for the niners but I'd lmao if in week 13 they had Rice, Harvin and Zach Miller all on IR, they have gathered some players with pop that have had troubles with injuries. Also surprised the Vikes got that much in a trade for Percy and am wondering when he will have beefs with his contract in Seattle or if he'll be calling for more touches of the ball as there are a number for players for Wilson to feed the rock to as well as his rushing abilites.

    This is about as good as we could hope for. If the 2014 pick is a 4th rounder it is golden. I like having back-to-back drafts with two first round picks. Means we should have at least four solid, young starters in the fold.

    I would not hate to see us go WR, WR with the two picks. Especially if we do not get one in free agency. But, in the end, this gives us a lot of draft-day flexibility and gets about as much as we could for a guy who did not want to be here.
    I would like us to go WR, DT/S and then WR.
    The differences in WRs aren't big.

    Glad to have this drama over with.
    Spielman did well with this trade.
    I wonder if we will ever know the real reason Percy wanted out of Minnesota ?

    You need to also factor in his contract which could very well be in excess of $10M/yr. Between Rice and Harvin they could easily consume $20M of their salary cap.

    The picks Seattle gave up essentially only gave them the rights to negotiate a contract with Percy. That's a pretty steep cost.

    I think Percy is a very talented player and may live up to the price, but he also brings along a lot of risks that would make me very hesitant to pay this high of a price.

    Good deal for us.. Don't want players around that don't wanna be here.. Waiting to see the contract numbers from Seattle but 3 draftpicks including a first-rounder was way more than what i thought we could get for a player like him.

    Percy is a great player when he plays, but we have seen him on the sideline to much here in Minny.

    From what i know Profootballcentral is rubbish when it comes to rumours, but if we can snag Cruz out of New York and slot Jarius Wright in to the percy role, we are on our way.
