Vikings WR Percy Harvin is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract and has no intention of playing out the fifth without a new deal. That means the Vikings -- and perhaps the rest of the NFL -- must decide sooner than later how much of a chance they're willing to take for the services of one of the game's premier slot players.
"There wasn't just one issue or two issues at Florida," the executive from another team said. "It was a chronic issue through his time spent at Florida. The Vikings had to take him knowing that all these things had existed. Anybody that took Percy Harvin knew that these behavioral instincts and the management and maintenance of the player -- they were all there.
"Some of those issues led to the possibility of those things carrying forward to the future, and you deal with those things when you decide to take that sort of risk. Would he get paid? I don't know."
The good news is that it appears that Harvin is content enough to play out the 2012 season without any further trade demands.
