With any offseason drama in the past, wide receiver Percy Harvin reported to Minnesota Vikings' training camp in Mankato, MN ready to assume the role of veteran playmaker. Vikings.com caught up with Harvin after the teams initial workout, a walk-through in advance of the first full practice.
After ironing out any issues with coach Leslie Frazier that threatened Harvin's status with the team earlier in the offseason, the dynamic wide receiver is looking ahead to the season and thinking about a common goal.
"Any way possible," Harvin responded when asked how he wants to help the Vikings this season. "I've had long talks with coach and like I said, we just all want to win, so this first practice will be a step towards that."
Harvin will also need to provide some leadership among the wide receiver corps with rookies Jarius Wright and Greg Childs hoping to add depth to the passing attack this season. If the rooks develop as expected, Harvin should benefit as opposing defenses won't be able to focus on just keeping him in check. Childs will be key as an outside deep threat to help open up more room for Harvin to go to work out of the slot.
