    That would be awesome for us but highly unlikely for any team imo. Why would they trade 2 picks of theirs( even if they'd have 2 picks in the 1st) in the first 4 rounds, when they want to get rid a player and not get one?
    They have had problems with Harvin and the team, they are not trying to pay him, and if they wait til next year will probably lose him for nothing, their 2nd is late in the draft, so that is moving up like 30 something spots into the first, and then giving up a late 4th, that is not that bad.

    The money and the problems are the reason they want to trade him in the first place, he will not get a 1st in a trade, the only way they get a first is by adding something to the package.
    Why so SERIOUS

    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.

    After ponderingthis for a while I think we should go after another FA WR that would not have the baggage that he has. Plus that contract he is looking for is way off base to what would be offered. IS the guy talented? Yes, but is it worth it for our team? No.

    No way I want the Colts to give up this years #1 and in the process limit the future cap flexibility to build a foundation around Luck. Luck is your playmaker and if you give him a solid, balanced football team he will win this franchise a lot of games and probably a championship.
    +1..... Absolutely!!! The year the Colts won the SB is because the Colts were better balanced. I believe that is one reason even an elite team like the Patriots doesn't win it all anymore.

    Reports say he was traded to the Seahawks.
    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...kings/1979021/

    The Seattle Seahawks have acquired Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin in exchange for multiple draft picks (including a first rounder) pending a physical, a person with knowledge of the transaction told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the move had not been announced by either team.

    Russell Wilson gets yet another weapon.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    He is such a perfect fit to play with Russel Wilson and Pete Carrol's offense. I get why they gave up so much it should be worth it if he stays healthy. He is a game changer and a perfect guy for the WC offense.

    His baggage scares me though he demanded Calvin Johnson money and gets into it with every coach who does he think he is?

    The Colts were not balanced at all. They were a offense first team and that was a smart way to build the team. If you invest all that money in PM you better do everything to make his life as easy as possible.


    The reason they won was the defense got hot (and Rex Grossman lol)but that team was all offense the defense wasn't where that team was built it was the offense. That defense was pretty bad until the playoffs when tehy went on a run and that is normally who wins the SB whoever gets hot.


    Bill Polian did an interview on this subject at the combine it was pretty interesting IMO.

    The Colts defense was very solid in 2005, 2007, and 2006 in the playoffs with Sanders back. Had Sanders been healthy in the 2006 regular season like he was in 2005 and 2007, then the defense would have looked much better throughout the season. He was that good.

    That Polian link was interesting. I always enjoy listening to Polian talk football.

    Sanders knew how to tackle and stop a guy. Such a shame his career was riddled with injuries. Sollozo has a point here, maybe it was one player only but he improved the defense with his presence. It's just not a coincidence that the defense got so much better during the playoffs of the SB season.

    Not that it means something but when I watched my first ever Colts game, he was hands down the player who impressed me the most from the defense (Freeney came second) and I knew absolutely nothing about football at the time. You just can't help but notice Sanders' game when he is/was in there.

    It's always a worry when a team trades one of their best player. What do you think it's the case here? Character and behaviour issues or that Vikings couldn't afford a new contract or even Harvin himself wouldn't commit?

    95% sure it was his attitude that was the problem. Contract wise they will now try to go after Wallace or Jennings for maybe a little less money that they would have gave Harvin.

    No way in hell is Percy Harvin worth a first round pick.
    Time will tell whether he is worth the pick or not but I will wager that the Seahawks will come out on top of this trade.
