EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that star receiver Percy Harvin has requested a trade from the Minnesota Vikings.
The person said Wednesday the trade request was not expected to be granted because of Harvin’s status as one of the team’s best players. The person requested anonymity on Wednesday because of the sensitivity of the issue.
Harvin voiced frustration with the Vikings on Tuesday at the first day of mandatory minicamp. He did not say what his specific issues were with the team, only saying that he was unhappy with several things and wanted them addressed before training camp begins at the end of July.
Coach Leslie Frazier said Tuesday that he was confident any issues could be resolved.
