Minnesota Vikings won't shop Percy Harvin, GM says


INDIANAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman on Thursday once again shot down the notion that the team is planning to shop disgruntled wide receiver Percy Harvin.

"As I stated earlier, we have no intent to trade (him)," Spielman told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine. "Anything related to his contract or any discussions will all be kept internally. I think everybody understands what type of player Percy Harvin is. He's a dynamic playmaker, not only on offense (and) the things that he can do with different positions, but also what he brings us as a kickoff returner."

With that question out of the way, Spielman wondered aloud if there was anything else to discuss.

"That's it? Thank you," Spielman joked, ready to bolt.

That wasn't it. Spielman was quizzed repeatedly about Harvin, and he stated -- repeatedy -- the Vikings will not move their Mr. Everything. Fair enough, but that doesn't mean teams won't come calling. They will, and -- bank on it -- Spielman and his people will listen.
