Minneapolis, MN - Since most of the state of Minnesota has been stuck inside due to snowy weather outdoors, it's been tough to miss the reports that have circulated this weekend surrounding the Minnesota Vikings interests to potentially trade star wide receiver Percy Harvin.
In fact, the story that was first reported by WCCO-TV weekend sports anchor Mike Max went as far as to say that the Vikings were "actively seeking" a way to trade Harvin.
Couple Max's report with the fact that just a few weeks ago the Vikings pushed out their 2013 season ticket campaign graphics that strangely do not include images of the team's top receiver.
Last Friday, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman joined KFAN's Paul Allen and discussed one of the team's biggest off-season priorities.
"Percy is a very good football player," Spielman told KFAN. "I'm not going to say what's going to happen this off-season because he is going into the last year of his contract. But right now, where we're at, Percy Harvin is a member of this football team and he is a very good football player. We don't like to get rid of really good football players."
Pushed on the issue of whether there have been off the field issues between the Vikings and Harvin, Spielman deflected saying, "We love Percy Harvin as a football player. Everybody sees what he does for our football team. Percy Harvin is a blue-chip player, he is a game changer."
Despite any potential off the field issues Harvin will still have high trade value should the Vikings decide to go that direction. Before going down with the ankle injury in week nine of the 2012 season, Harvin was on pace to have the best season of his career and was named early in the race for offensive MVP
