According to 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, the Vikings' intention was never for Percy Harvin to play out the fifth and final year of his rookie contract without an extension.
The Vikings habitually address expiring contracts a year early for top players. Judd Zulgad of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities believes Harvin has played his last game in Minnesota after adopting Randy Moss' world view over the past couple of years. Zulgad fully expects the Patriots to go after Harvin if he hits the trade market. Bill Belichick "loves Percy," adds Zulgad.
