Word on the street is that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin and coach Leslie Frazier are having some internal problems. The cause of the turmoil is yet to be revealed, but the outcome will most likely involve Harvin being traded.
But which team would make the most sense for him to join? Here are five teams that Harvin would lend a significant hand to if recruited.
Miami Dolphins- Miami needs a dynamic wide receiver after trading Brandon Marshall. They have all the extra draft picks they need to get Harvin, it’s just a matter of whether they want to put all their eggs in one basket.
Washington Redskins- Many believe that Robert Griffin III needs a reliable receiver to really show what he can do, and their receivers struggled to make big catches in 2012. But only a free agent will be able to fix this problem, as they are without first round picks this year and the next due to the Griffin trade.
Indianapolis Colts- Reggie Wayne, The Colts’ best receiver, is now 34 years old and can’t catch deep passes like he used to. They don’t have a second round pick this year but they cannot depend on their running game to run the show.
Seattle Seahawks- Imagine how much more energy Russell Wilson could conserve if he had a wide receiver who he didn’t have to chase after to catch his passes. Harvin would be a great fit in coach Carroll’s unique offense where his versatility could truly shine.
San Fransisco 49ers- Crabtree and Vernon Davis are still doing their part, but Randy Moss is just about finished. They will need a replacement to compete with the Patriots trio of Hernandez, Welker and Gronkowski, and Harvin’s success on the outside is just what they need to further evolve their well-developed passing game.
