Percy Harvin Trade: Why The Jaguars Should Stay Away

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.
