Report: Percy Harvin requests a trade

Jon Krawczynski, Twitter - [Full Article]

AP sports writer Jon Krawczynski on Twitter: "Percy Harvin has requested a trade from the ‪Vikings‬."

Harvin told 1500 ESPN that he wasn't "happy" six times in a brief interview, so the obvious issue is his contract, which he signed back in 2009. It runs two more seasons.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's strange that he would request a trade instead of holding out, which is the usual route that players use to start contract negotiations. This situation is obviously a big red flag for Harvin until it gets sorted out. The WRs ranging from #7 to #19 are only separated by 14 points in our standard scoring projections, so there's no reason to draft Harvin over someone like Brandon Marshall or Marques Colston at this point.
