    According to ESPN 1500 Twin Cities, the "word circulating in league circles" is that Percy Harvin wants at least an annual $10 million in his new contract, with the "real goal" perhaps being $12 million or more.

    $12 million annually would make Harvin the league's highest paid receiver not named Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald. Beat writer Tom Pelissero confirms Harvin's suspected contract demands are a "bigger issue" in trade talks than the draft picks it would take to acquire him. An AFC personnel executive "guesses" the Vikings could get a second- or third-round pick, along with another selection to "sweeten the pot." For his part, Pelissero thinks the situation could still go either way, ending in "reconciliation" with the Vikings or a one-way ticket out of town. Pelissero believes Harvin's unique skill-set, checkered medical history and "well-documented pattern of insubordination" will conspire to limit his market.

    You don't pay this type of money just for a good player. You pay it for a good player who is also a club house leader. This guy has had off field issues dating all the way back to high school. Clearly he hasn't changed. You only trade for Harvin if you're going to sign him long term. Risky investment...especially considering we don't know how he'll act after getting paid.

     




    I agree - the only thing I find funny about his salary expectations is the fact that they are out there at this point. Who leaked that? And why? The team sure didn't because it kills his trade value. Maybe the player or agent did, but by doing that they will scare off teams as well.

    On a conspiracy theory level...Belichick wants Harvin and Harvin wants to come to NE based off  previous meetings predraft with Bill, plus for the first time in Harvin's career he will get the chance to play with an elite QB. Bill tells him the only way he's coming to NE is if the price is right, so he tells him to leak outragious salary demands to scare away potential suiters and drop the trade demands/value of the vikings...or Harvin is just a punk.

    BB wanted Harvin not only because he was a good player, but also because he would have been at a good value. It doesn't matter if BB liked Harvin as a rookie because we're now at the point where Harvin is about to become one of the top paid WRs.

     

    And I'm not going to assume a 24 year old receiver is going to take a pay cut to play with an Elite QB (Btw, he played with Favre the year Favre had one of his best seasons ever). Also, Brady will be 36, he's not going to take a pay cut to play with an elite QB when the elite QB is near the end of his career. I don't believe most players are as in love with the Patriots as we are and are willing to take the cut to come here.

     

    Harvin is arguably not even in the prime of his career. And by most reports, he's not a team player. I'd be surprised if he takes a pay cut for anyone, the man is about to get paid! Only way he doesn't get what he wants is if no one is willing to pay him. For a kid that is as talented as him and only 25 years old, one GM will take a chance.

    Very good points. Harvin would not be the first player, however, to shoot his way out of a town or organization with big money demands to later take less then what his boastful demands were, elsewhere. Not saying he cares about the Patriots at all, just that he might not want to be with the vikings for some reason in addition to money.

    He might be taking it as a have my cake and eat it too opportunity. Get more money AND possibly go play for someone close to getting to or winning a superbowl.?? That obviously would not necessarily have to be the Patriots.

    Oh yeah we really want this guy:

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/02/11/harvin-is-expected-to-hold-out-under-current-deal/

    LOL NO!

     


    That has also been reported by ESPN. Apparently, he already wants a new deal this year, or he will hold out. He thinks he should be getting close to the Larry Fitzgerald or Calvin Johnson type of money.  He has too high an opinion of himself and he had been disruptive in MN and had not been a team player. Do the Pats really need someone like that, especially when his expectation to be paid is rather unrealistic?
