Percy Harvin is big news. Percy Harvin is really big news for receiver-deficient teams. Now Percy Harvin is being shopped by the Minnesota Vikings.
Sounds good, right?
Well, kind of.
If you’re a Jacksonville Jaguars fan, it shouldn’t even matter. In years past “receiver-deficient” would have been the perfect description for the Jags. But now, with the emergence of Cecil Shorts III and Justin Blackmon, the Jags really don’t have a major need at the position. They could use a good slot receiver, but – in my opinion – that may already be on the roster in Jordan Shipley.
While Harvin is by no means a super selfish player like Titus Young, having personality related issues with two head coaches (as bad as Brad Childress was, he didn’t deserve it) is major red flag for a rebuilding team not dying for his talent. Gus Bradley will have a hard enough time turning the Jags around after a 2-14 season, he doesn’t need a potential headache on the sidelines to go with. The Vikes really want to get rid of Harvin, who could be picked up with a second or third round pick, but they’re problem will likely not become a saint a la Cris Carter.
Stay away Mr. Caldwell. Stay away.
