Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin hinted at a holdout over unspecified issues.
On Tuesday morning, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin made it clear that he was not happy with the organization and strongly hinted at a possible holdout unless unspecified "issues" were resolved. ESPN's Tom Pellissero tweeted that Harvin basically said that he would not be coming to training camp if these issues were still present.
Percy Harvin repeatedly says he's not happy. Won't say it's the contract but says it "definitely" needs to be resolved before training camp.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 19, 2012
In other words, Harvin says he's not showing up to training camp unless the "issues" are resolved. Has 2 years left on his rookie deal.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 19, 2012
Harvin has been working his way back from an injured shoulder, which he downplayed according to Pellissero. Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier was not concerned about a holdout and commented that Harvin probably won't be able to do much in training camp because of the shoulder any way.
However, Frazier was as vague as Harvin while addressing the topic.
Frazier says he has talked to Harvin, doesn't see any reason he won't be in camp. Also rules out role in offense. Lot of vague stuff here.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 19, 2012
