Hell, AD has his backside, wants him back and says he'd never trade him. Does that scream cancer to you?
Not enough Tds and yards. Can care less about the yards he gets off kickoffs because that argument is the argument used to make him look like more than what he is. People point of his total yards in the top 3 of the Nfl, since he came into the league. Take away the return yards and he is a talented, explosive and exciting player but not a dominant one. The type of money he is asking for requires dominance. I was happy to see AD paid because he is dominant. I was happy to see Allen paid etc. However, if Percy doesn't want a deal closer to his true value....meh... 5 years 30-35 million... then trade his ass. He is not a 5 years 55 millon guy.
FACT is, Harvin does NOT have problems staying healthy, despite the common belief that he does. He HAD some migrane issues, but those haven't been reported for over 2 years. He's missed only 3 games leading up to last season all career.
Percy is talented, no doubt about it. But he doesn't carry the team on his back like Adrian does.
Without Percy, we make the play-offs, without Adrian, we pick #1 overall every year (slight exaggeration).
We need solid WR's...something we haven't had in a LONG time. Trouble is, they're expensive. Percy, IMO, is over-priced. He's not a consistent game-breaker like Moss was. And, as mentioned, he doesn't carry the fate of the franchise. Top it all off with his reputed attitude, and that adds up to "TRADE BAIT".
Sad thing here is that Percy has the TALENT to help carry the team....not on the same level as Adrian does, but significantly....but he lacks the selflessness to do so.
yahoo sports has a rumor of us trading PH to the 49ers. hope we get enough for him. hate to see him go.
I'm in the camp of "Pay Percival." Half a year ago we were telling any fans that would listen Harvin was a legitimate MVP candidate. Saying we won without him so we can continue to do so is very short sighted. If we could sign him to an $11-12M contract I say sign me up. If the rest of the team ever plays to a SB contender level, we will be so sorry we let him go when our team has plenty of depth but only AD
As a true game breaker. If at all possible I say water under the bridge, extend him and lets try to add cheap talent around two of the most dynamic players in the league.
There is no one in the league we can get to replace Percy Harvin.
