Vikings Have No Interest In Trading Percy Harvin, General Manager Says

On Wednesday afternoon, Minnesota Vikings management made it clear that the organization has no interest in trading disgruntled wide receiver Percy Harvin. Harvin came out on Tuesday insinuating that he was going to holdout if unspecified "issues" weren't resolved, prior to requesting a trade on Wednesday.

The Vikings have no plans to honor the request.

Via ESPN 1500:

"We have no interest at all in trading Percy Harvin," [general manager Rick] Spielman told reporters on Wednesday afternoon, one day after Harvin said he's unhappy about multiple issues and hours after news broke the dynamic receiver has requested a trade.

Harvin was present at morning practice on Wednesday but failed to report to the team's afternoon practice, which means the club can fine him $30,000 unless they decide to excuse him.

Regardless, Spielman made it clear that Harvin is an important member of the team and the management wants to keep him in a Vikings uniform.

"He's a key part of our organization," Spielman said. "He's a key part of our football team, and any issues that are out there or reported, we always handle those internally and will continue to handle those internally.

"We've had a very good offseason. I know our players have worked and coaches have worked extremely hard and look forward to everybody getting down to Mankato (for training camp) and having a great season coming up."
